Visual SCSI Explorer version 2.8 is available for purchasing and download.

New features: Windows Server 2019 support. Disk: Prevent Allow Medium Removal (1Eh) command. Media changer: Exchange Medium (A6h) command, TapeAlert Supported Flags (B2h) VPD page, Extended Device Capabilities (1Fh/41h) mode page. Tape drive: Logical Block Protection (B5h) VPD page. Multi-media: Mechanism Status (BDh) command, Load/Unload Medium (A6h) command, Read Disc Structure (ADh) command, Read Format Capacities (23h), Format Unit (04h) command, Read CD (BEh) command, Read CD MSF (B9h) command. Processor: Receive (08h) command, Send (0Ah) command. Shared commands: Release (6) (17h) command, Reserve (6) (16h) command, Release (10) (57h) command, Reserve (10) (56h) command.

Improvements: More correct parsing of received mode data in case when mode data are present in the buffer only partially. Printing of log parameter names in device log for known log parameters. Printing of log parameter values in device log for media changer log parameters. Support of variable length binary attribute value for Write Attribute (8Dh) SCSI command. Option "Allow SCSI commands for all device types" allows execution of device type specific commands for all device types. Printing of ASCII and TEXT medium auxiliary memory attribute values in binary form in device log window. Save Disk Image service procedure can save CD/DVD/BD medium image for multi-media device. Showing the percentage of completness in Disk LBA Map Test service procedure. For Disk Performance Test, Disk Read Test, Disk Write Test, and Disk LBA Map Test service procedures zero number of blocks per transfer is translated into optimal value. The startup script feature has been removed permanently as potentially dangerous.

Bug fixes: Problem with incorrect data buffer alignment when SCSI command transfers data to/from device. New device object name and other parameters are not recognized during "refresh hardware" operation. Failure in hardware management service during adapter enumeration when SCSI ports numbers are not sequential. SCSI Chip Test service procedure stops on first read/write error instead of counting errors and continue.
