OT: Nvidia's 'accelerated IDE drivers' (nforce 2 boards)

    Has this part of the platform drivers been dropped permanently by Nvidia?
    I can't find out any info on it anymore. I have the original CD with these
    'accelerated' IDE drivers on them but I'm currently running the 2.45's which
    don't have them. Any ideas?

    Yeah, they didn't do much positive and did too much negative. They
    broke several different very popular CD burning programs. The
    performance increase was minimal at best. Glad they are gone.

    THe IDe's in the 2.41 were very fast, and 100% stable with all burning
    packages for me (Nero, alcohol,clonecd).
    But then again, the 1.16's and 2.03's were also 100% stable.

    Fair enough, OTOH, there's a host of messages on the internet
    detailing the MANY people who had bad problems with the accelerated
    drivers with Nero mainly and Roxio as well.

    I'm running this "driver" in Windows 2000.

    MCP2? Isn't that the standard windows driver that Nvidia renamed? It came
    with the 2.0 unifed.

  7. Well yes. But not with the 2.45 (except for maybe Windows XP). This is also
    a "driver rename".
