i must say...
since the release of 3.1.0.0 beta over a month ago, most (all?) bugs have been fixed...
works great now, all the new features that i'm using work fine.

(hehe...most of these new features - i'm responsible for :D well some at least)

warning!

just in case anyone is using the 3.1.0.6 beta:
i just stumbled on a bug in the Compare process, it (sometimes?) reports files identical when they're not! beware!

this has been confirmed by Mitja Perko.

a new beta will be released soon (probably next week).

Thank you for the info.
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace

update:

new version of CDCheck out a short while ago: 3.1.0.11 release candidate 1 (February 2, 2004)

Changes:
3.1.0.11
+ pressing ALT-RIGHT key in compare (when focus on source) copies the source to reference
+ note is issued when no hash file is found during checking
* default behaviour for .wav file is now not to ignore anything (during processing)
* modified bug reporting window
* improved bad antivirus plugin handling
* modified CD Info - if unknown CD it asks for information
* changed stat. value when no good reads (was: 100% now: -1)
- recovery now removes existing file even if it has readonly attribute
- error message appeared when no ASPI was found during autodetection
- fixed support detection for ASPI (function did not return any value)
- fixed bug in ASPI causing some drives not to be listed and used

Comments:
Bugs from previous versions have been fixed so everything
should be fully functional. Software is also ready for translation
(language files have been updated). There are however still missing new
help files which will be provided in the next release candidate.
Installation has been upgraded and now supports multiple languages

[i take credit for the two new features of this version :D well, the credit for suggesting these features. the actual credit goes of course to Mitja Perko.]

and while i'm at it, i'd like to urge all the regular users of this great program to help support it by registring it with a Support License (at the very least). a Support license costs $10.

new version of CDCheck just out: 3.1.2.0 final release (October 21, 2004)

(note: this is a final release, not a beta version!)

Comments:
Unfortunately there remained some bugs in final release 3.1.1 which are now fixed in version 3.1.2. The bugs were NOT PRESENT in any part of the program which produces hashes, checks or compares CDs/DVDs!

Two most important bugs fixed:
- ASPI driver caused errors at startup on Windows 98 with Microsoft ASPI driver and in some other cases. Windows 2000, XP and 2003 were unaffected.
- Manufacturer ID of -R/-RW DVDs in CD/DVD Info was not extracted correctly under some circumstances.

Other changes:
+ added optional startup debuging for easier bug solving
* when opening options dialog the autodetected ASPI settings are kept the same
* errors are now not shown if invalid wnaspi32.dll is present
- during ASPI detection now all CD/DVD drives are listed and autodetection of ASPI ID-drive connections is more reliable

new version of CDCheck just out: 3.1.3.0 final release (November 20, 2004)

(note: this is a final release, not a beta version!)

Comments:
The most important change is the fix of the bug in calculation of "Clean Read" transfer. But some small improvements have also been made.

Changes from 3.1.2.0:
* running licensed CDCheck from removable media creates no registry keys
* uninstall switch added for users of .zip versions of CDCheck
* improved media info file processing
- clean read was using random no. of bytes as "Clean read min. size", now the value in Options is used

new version of CDCheck just out: 3.1.3.1 beta (February 9, 2005)

Comments:
Update release will be available in a few weeks. It depends on any problems reported with this beta. This is otherwise mostly fixup release so it should function just fine.

Changes:
* cdcheck.ini from Windows directory is used if CDCheck is run from a network
- sound played on 1st error was incorrect
- error sorting reported an unexpected error if every item has not been at least once shown (initialized)
- report window volume names were current volume names instead of the volume names at the time of processing
- in Check setup dialog reporting options were ignored
- fixed problem with selecting drive by clicking on volume name
- DVD-ROM does not show "invalid parameter" in CD Info
