Software News   Software News : New version of Disk Image Device OS4
   posted by tomazkid on 15-Jul-2007 17:26:22 (2516 reads)
Fredrik Wikström has updated the Disk Image Device to version 52.13.
This is an utility to mount ISO- and disk images as a device on OS4.






From readme:


This is a from scratch development for AmigaOS4.0 and is not to be confused
with Thore Boeckelmann's diskimage.device for AOS3.x. Only the name and some
functionality is the same (can use the same mountlists f.e.).

The DiskImageCtrl doesn't work with this device for this reason. This should
not be a problem however as there is now (as of v52.2) a ReAction GUI that
provides more or less the same functionality as this program.

WARNING: Never use DiskImageGUI with diskimage.device of different version. The
GUI relies on some private device vectors for it's functionality that are
likely to change as the device is improved and more features are added. Always
reboot after installing a new diskimage.device/DiskImageGUI version.


Requirements:

- AmigaOS4
- AISS (required by the GUI)
- capsimage.device (for IPF support only) - http://softpres.org

Supported Image Formats:

- adf
- adz (gzipped adf)
- bin
- dms (DiskMaSher)
- img (normal/CloneCD)
- ipf (needs capsimage.device)
- iso (CD/DVD)
- mdf (Alcohol)
- nrg (Nero)

The following formats are supported but untested:
- b5i
- cdi
- pdi

Also supports compressed images through (if available):

- xadmaster.library
- xpkmaster.library

IPF images are always write protected and cannot be written to.



Download from OS4Depot

Didnt have any iso files to test with for the moment but the gui looks nice. All info sounds great what you can mount. I used previous virtualcd but it was very limited and thanks to your disk image device i can finally have a good tool to mount iso's etc again. To be tested later on.

Thanks for doing a usable tool ;)

EDIT: Tested with an .adf file both normal and gzipped and worked ok.

How can you recall the GUI? I tried it in wbstartup, the ctrl alt d, executing from CLI, but nothing happened.

@Chip

Have you checked with f.e. the Exchange commodity to see that it is actually running? You should also be able to show/hide the GUI from there. Also the GUI needs the latest 3.1 version of AISS to be installed to work which could be the reason for failing though this should only happen when the GUI is being opened (maybe I should add some kind of error message for this?).

If that doesn't help please post a Snoopy log on starting the program/trying to bring up the GUI here. Another way to bring up the GUI is to run DiskImageGUI when it is already running (alternatively setting NOGUI=no and CX_POPUP=yes will make the GUI always show on startup, more details on this in the readme).

Thanks for the hints. I have some AISS installed but maybe it's too old. I'll check tonight and let you know the result.
Thanks!

The AISS version (v3) on OS4Depot.net is not the latest.

AISS v3.1, which is needed for DiskImageGUI can be downloaded from:

Posting this in case anyone else is having this problem...
