Yes the DOC driver for NTO is in QNX6 public repository. The driver
in the repository is “devc-doc”, identified as: “Driver for M-Systems
DiskOnChip, Version 4.2.0”. I have been able to use this driver
successfully, but I have not been able to obtain any confirmation from
QNX that this driver is not the same driver that had problems back in
December of 2000. [read: NO CONFIDENCE]
The problem with the old DiskOnChip driver appears to occur during
when power is turned lost during a critical time. The “bug” causes
the DOC to lose its format. I have not experienced this problem, but
I do not have any confidence in the driver because the email I
recevied from M-sys stated that WHEN a valid driver is available for
QNX RTP, then it will appear on their website. Msys does not have a
DOC driver for QNX NTO on their website.
So, this topic will continue to pop-up in the newsgroup until someone
from QNX verifies that the old problem with the DOC driver has been
fixed and that the new driver in the repository is valid. At that
point, hopefully QNX should allow Msys to make that driver available
on their website.

confidence is returned to the DiskOnChip driver].

Mine (and Duane’s) problem is not finding the driver in the repository. The
problem is that there is a concern over whether that driver (version 4.2.0)
has a power cycle issue that can corrupt the contents of the DiskOnChip -
and, if that is the case, whether there is an update somewhere on the
A search of my own archives of the newsgroups has not revealed any more
information. Thanks Lionel

This keeps and keeps popping up althought it has been answered dozen
times already. Do people ever search newsgroups archives before asking
these days? You often can find answer in archives faster than someone
answers again, believe me.
Now, dozen + 1 times:
The DOC driver for NTO is in QNX6 public repository, it’s been there for
a while. Somewhere in ‘public software’ or alike.
