    Too many links, not enough time to read.

    In short how does this apply to my eMac? :)

    If you think you must follow the links now or never you missed the concept of web forums. Read them as soon as you feel you've the time to read them, easy.

    > In short how does this apply to my eMac? :)

    That's exactly what I meant. Only because your eMac with MorphOS can't do it doesn't mean "Amiga" in general can't do it.

    Actually, that's simply not how forums work

    Person 1: How does this work?

    Person 2: Turn on button 4, switch thingy-bob7 to the same address as your external thingy, and that should work, if not try using version 3.24, not 3.25. Have a look at these links where people had the same problem http://link1 and someone who's trying a different program to do something similar http://link2

    Not really the same as, well what you do..

    So in short he could have just said:

    Read again. He didn't ask how something works. In fact I didn't even post those links as a reply to a question at all but to a *statement* of opinion. To this statement I made a comment, consisting of a quote and some accompanying links. Those links are meant as a means for him to inform himself of the state of affairs regarding Amiga and isochronous USB transfers, not as an answer to a question you're now fantasizing about but in fact nobody asked. He can read those links now or as soon as he has the time to do so (which he says he now has not) or even never. It's all up to him. And yes, that's exactly how web forums work.

    > Person 2: [...]

    I like linking more than copy-pasting, which in turn I like more than paraphrasing. But I understand that's a matter of personal preference. And I hope you understand that I offer my help in a way that I prefer doing it. After all, nobody is obliged to accept my help anyway.

    > Not really the same as, well what you do..

    It's obvious that you've not even understood what it is I do.

    Possibly, I have little/no knowledge of the subject, which is why I was trying to not post in this thread, but I got sorta dragged in.

    The funny thing is that what I actually said (i.e. what are my own words) is even shorter than that :-) And if you add the quote and the links you'll find that is has way more information than your sentence.

    Well, yeah the usb situation is a little special here. If you connect an audio device it even provides a matching AHI output within AHI setting, but it is not working.

    The thing is that there is a driver which needs the forth protocol type for usb transfer. One for driver setup (control) and another for the audio data. USB audio and video outputs use a protocol named iso transfer, which basically sets proper timing before data accuracy. So if data gets lost on its way to the device (or back in case of a mic) it simply doesn´t matter and the data will not be resend. It is lost.

    Since non of the other device types is using such protocol (would be bad for usb sticks :) ) and there wasn´t a driver or application to test with, the fourth usb protocol was never implemented. Chris supported iso transfer with one of his classic usb cards and he made an he made a driver for it, which is part of MorphOS, too. Just without any iso transfer all data gets lost.

    End of Story

    Well thank you for the input everyone, even if I did complain a little in regards to how that help came. ;)

    Remember, I'm not a coder, layman's terms will work. :)
