NOTE: ATADEMO is an old Parallel ATA (PATA) and CompactFlash (CF) testing program. If you are testing Serial ATA (SATA) devices you should be using the newer program AHCDEMO. ATADEMO version 12A0 *may* be the last release of ATADEMO.
Brief description: A program to assemble and execute any ATA or ATAPI command. The free/demo version supports only interactive operation. The commercial/full version supports script files and many additional functions. ATADEMO uses the ATADRVR to perform the actual low level ATA I/O functions.
Here is a partial list of the functions supported by ATADEMO:
Note: If you are testing PATA ATA devices you need ATADEMO! If you are testing SATA ATA devices you should be using AHCDEMO.
ATADEMO supports a wide range of PCI Bus Mastering ATA host adapters. And all PCMCIA PC Card ATA I/O and memory interface modes are supported. Please download and try out the free/demo version.
ATADEMO has been updated to support Serial ATA (SATA) devices. SATA seems to have lots of problems and ATADEMO seems to be able to find many, if not all, of these problems. These problems appear as timeout errors, data corruption errors and other strange events.
