Does ICE ROM recognize WIN1 drives

Any thoughts on whether or not the Eidersoft ICE ROM will recognize IDE devices (WIN1_) connected via a QuBide (clone)?

Switchable QL-SD

Hello,

I purchased one of the new switchable QL-SD devices a month or two ago. The manual did not indicate how to implement the on\off switch. Anyone know the steps and\or have pics of the switch implemented?

Thanks,

Tom
