helogirl Posted March 4, 2011 Report Share Posted March 4, 2011 I just put in a SSD (solid state disk drive) to attempt to speed up everything. I can boot from either the SSD or my previous HDD so I can compare and transfer files to facilitate the setup. I tried to clone the drive, but as my system was dual boot, it failed and failed... So I have reinstalled all the programs on the SSD which is remarkably fast (FSX & Accelerator took < 5 minutes between them to install!!!) My SIM is a helicopter cockpit and I also have a lot of peripherals, about 50 switches, 80 lamps/leds, 8 axis encoders for the cyclic (x2) collective, pedal and throttle controls which I have painstakingly programmed and it flys great; I just wanted to try the speed of the SSD. Well when I copy the FSUIPC4.ini file from the HDD to the SSD, the controls and switches are completely different. The changes are between a single reboot, booting the HDD and then the SDD. Also the FSUIPC display is slightly different on the SSD boot and HDD boot. When opening the FSUIPC in FSX, the top "TABS" have a different layout. Also the USB assignments are different between the 2 boot drives. The SIOC the IDXs are 96 & 79 on the SSD boot, but on the HDD boot they are 235 & 199. Very strange. This is something neither my husband, friends nor I have never seen before. Hardware is hardware. But the different boot drive with the same version of and updates of the OS and obviously no changes in hardware between the boots, are producing different Device codes. Am resisting changing the programming but will probably have to as I think Pete is out of the loop until the 15th of March. Thanks to anyone who has some ideas.
