    INTRODUCTION:
    =============

    I wrote EasyACDDA (a gui developped  using Gui4Cli) for my  personal use and
    then I have  sent it to my friends. Now I have  decided to give to the Amiga
    community this little work of mine. I sincerely hope you will find EasyACDDA
    very useful. EasyACDDA means EasyAmigaCDDA !

    · About:      Gives some infos about  the program and  the author. There
are
                  two gadgets, "Okay" and "SendEmail". "SendEMail" has a special
                  feature, it calls your emailer which will create a email ready
                  that you could simply send me.
    · Config:     Opens a  configuration panel  which allows  to configure 
your
                  CDRom. If the  tooltype "NOMEMTYPE" is set to "TRUE", then the
                  text box "MEMTYPE" will be disabled.
    · Test:       Opens a test panel which allows to test your CDRom in order
to
                  find a right value. If the right value is found, then you have
                  to change the tooltype "PLAN" entering the right value.
    · Infos:      Opens a window which contains a sort of "Table of Content"
for
                  the current CDDA. Click on one of  the lines shown and so your

    ­>MAIN GUI: (the wonderful gui "EasyACDDA")

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    The main window (EasyACDDA) is organized in two parts:

    Play a CD track:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    · 1-40:       these buttons allow  to play each single  track, you  can
play
                  other tracks also  if the  previous track has  not reached the
                  end. So the  previous track will be stopped and the  new track
                  will be played.
    · Vol.-|+:    this slider allows  to set the volume (0-100[%]). You  have
to
                  set the volume before playing/saving any track.
    · Play:       this button allows  to play consecutively all  tracks found
on
                  the CD.
    · Stop:       this button affects the functions Play and Save stopping
them.

    Save a CD track:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    · Track:      this text box allows to enter your favorite track to save.
The
                  gadgets [-][+] allow to do this operation in the easier way.
    · Format:     this cycle menu allows to select the file format. You are
able
                  to save a track as 8SVX, WAV, MAUD and AIFF.
    · Mode:       this cycle  menu allows  to select some  parameters. These
are
                  MUTE (no sound), MONO and 16BIT. When you save a track as WAV,
                  the only available parameter is MUTE also if the cycle menu is
                  set to another parameter. If you save a track as MAUD or AIFF,
                  the only available parameters are 16BIT and MUTE.
    · File:       this text box allows to enter  the path and  file name for
the
                  track to save.
    ____________________________________________________________________________
    ­>CONFIG GUI: (see the menu item "Config")

    · Device:     this text box allows to enter your CD device.
    · Unit:       this text box allows to enter your CD unit.
    · MemType:    this text box allows to enter the value  for the  memory

                  You can enter "2" (Chip Mem), "512" (Zorro Mem) or other value
                  if you are  expert. If you  don't want this  feature then  you
                  have to set the tooltype "NOMEMTYPE" to "TRUE" so the text box
                  "MEMTYPE" will appear disabled.
    · Use:        this button allows to use temporarily your configuration.
    · Save:       this button allows to save your configuration on harddisk.
    · HELP:       this button allows to obtain  some infos  about the

which
                  are "a", "b", "c", "d", "e" (default) and "f".
    · Test:       this button allows to test the CDRom with one of the
available
                  parameters. If your CDRom works fine, you have found the right
                  parameter so  you have to modify  the tooltype "PLAN" entering
                  the right parameter.
    · Stop:       this button allows to stop the test.
    · HELP:       this button allows to obtain  some infos  about the 
mechanism
                  regarding this gui.
    ____________________________________________________________________________
    ­>TOOLTYPES: (allow to configure "EasyACDDA")
<­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
   
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    · IMAGE:      this tooltype allows to set your favorite background image.
So
                  you have to enter the path and file name.
    · PLAN:       this tooltype allows to set your CDRom type with the
following
                  parameters:
                  » "a" = some CDRoms "Sony" and compatible
                  » "b" = some CDRoms "Toshiba" and compatible
                  » "c" = some CDRoms "NEC" (old CDRoms)
                  » "d" = some CDRoms "Grunding" and "Toshiba"
                  » "e" = all CDRoms 100% Atapi
                  » "f" = some CDRoms Pre-Atapi
    · VOL:        this tooltype allows to set your default volume (default
value
                  100[%]). So EasyACDDA  will start with your value. The minimum
                  value is "0" and the maximum is "100".
    · FORMAT:     this tooltype allows to  set your  default file format for
the
                  output file. So EasyACDDA will start with your value. The only
                  four values allowed are:
                  » "0" = is for 8SVX
                  » "1" = is for WAV
                  » "2" = is for MAUD
                  » "3" = is for AIFF
    · MODE:       this tooltype  allows to  set your  default mode. So
EasyACDDA
                  will start with your value. The values allowed are:
                  » "0" = is for 16BIT
                  » "1" = is for MONO
                  » "2" = is for MUTE
    · FILE:       this tooltype allows to set your default output file. You
have
                  to enter the path and file name.
    · DEVICE:     allows to set your default CDRom device.
    · UNIT:       allows to set your default CDRom unit.
    · MEMTYPE:    allows to set your default memory type. There  are some
values
                  allowed:
                  » "2" = Chip Mem
                  » "512" = Zorro Mem
                  or other values if you are expert.
    · NOMEMTYPE:  this tooltype allows  to disable (or enable) the  memory
type.
                  "NOMEMTYPE" has the maximum priority. The values allowed are:
                  » "TRUE" = disable "MEMTYPE"
                  » "FALSE" = enable "MEMTYPE"
                  If this tooltype  is set to "TRUE", EasyACDDA will try to work
                  detecting which type of memory is available.

    KNOWN PROBLEMS:
    ===============

    When you are saving a track do not open the  window "Table of Contents" (See
    "Infos") otherwise your  system will  crash. This  problem affects my system
    and I don't know if this problem may affect your system (I hope no !).
    This problem may be due to the fact that when you are saving a track the CPU
    is quite busy.
