Fixes & Enhancements

RELEASE NOTES FOR CERC ATA100/4ch FIRMWARE ========================================== Current Firmware - 6.67 (Previous - 6.66) Current BIOS - 1.04 (Previous - 1.04) Current Ctrl-M - 5a42 (Previous - 5a42) Current Boot Block - 1.4.3 (Previous - 1.4.3) Current Web BIOS - 1.43 (Previous - 1.43) Firmware Enhancements and Bug Fixes (from v.6.66): When a drive on secondary channel is removed, the other drive on primary channel is sometimes not responding, so firmware gets time-out. FW retries for 3 times if a command is timed-out before failing the drive. Whenever FW retries, a variable called "retry count" is updated to hold the information of how many retries have been carried out. This variable was not cleared properly for a fresh command. It held the "old" value. This was causing FW not to retry the timed-out command for the drive on primary channel and fail the drive following the very first time-out error. The variable retry count is properly cleared now and the problem is fixed.
