This will be the next challenge and the last will be how to do this within Windows and not through the DOS.
Well, there's a little problem with that. You'll have to rewrite this application from scratch and supply a device driver to pull this off. User mode applications do not have any access to the hardware, hence the need for a driver.
If you've got the complete specs for reading/writing the CMOS on a Gigabyte board, the ability to write and debug kernel mode code, specically device drivers, and can write said device drivers in C (cannot use C#!), you should be able to pull this off.
The basic Line Print Terminal connector (parallel port) pin function specifies pins 2 - 9 for data bits 0 - 7. So I suppose you need to make a distinction between the hardware and the software you might be using. with the hardware accepting 1 byte, buffer size in your software - whatever that is - is now the question you need to address.
i'm making a disk(volume) backup/restore system.
i would unmount volume before backup,
but the system volume can not be unmounted.
so the change or access of system volume is worry for me while that system volume is backup.
is it possible that detect which disk sector or ntfs cluster was changed realtime?
that can be filter driver, can it be possible?
