When will the new firmware be ready for ACA500?
We're working on it, but I can't give any release date yet. Give us a few more days - we'll then either have a solution, or at least a timeline. The problem *will* be solved, that's for sure.

Everything felt fine in practice.
You'll get more IDE speed if you overclock the card. You can try that by closing the trial jumper and use "ACAclock s 3". I can't predict a final number as I don't know what your CF card can really do, but I'd expect that more than 2MB/second is possible with that setup.
If you have an IDE-fix express, please make sure that the two jumpers on the express-adapter are *closed*, and that the latest IDE-max software is installed. This will further increase speed.
