Writing file mark

Writing file mark

Post by Lin, Kennet » Fri, 10 Apr 1998 04:00:00

Hi, I'm using SCSI tape drive to record a long sonar data. I used
scsiPhsyDevIdGet to get the physical device id of tape unit. I used
scsiSeqDevCreate to initialise the sequetial device. Then I used
tapeFsDevInit to initialise th tape file system.

To record the data, I then called "open" with write only option. Data
recording then is done by calling "write". I also write a "short file
mark" to the tape every 5 minutes of data recording. Everything seemed
fine. But every now and then, scsiWrtFileMarks failed with exception
768. I run Tornado on Unix host connected to a target power PC 603.
Windshell is used to test the program. The exception Stack Frame
Contents are the following
vecOffset       768
-error          0
dar             167774776
dsisr           45360
fpcsr           15867656

Does any one have a similar problem before? Does any one know what could
be going wrong?    


1. Thrustmaster WCS Mark II and FCS Mark I files

Hi all:

I have been using the old TM WCSII and FCS I for years.  It still works
fine, and I'm not necessarily ready to upgrade unless I have to.  But it
seems there is little support for this setup anymore, even at
Thrustmaster.com.  Specifically, I am looking for WCS II files for Microsoft
Combat Flight Simulator.  I'm not into programming the files myself.  Does
anyone know where I might be able to find WCS II files for recently released

Thanks for any help you can provide.
