TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_CDRECORD-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 ECO Summary
NOTE: An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe. The
resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
used to install the ECO.

(of form $nn$), or with nodename prefixes, or with an
initial underscore ("_"). The workaround described in
the OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1 Release Notes, Section 4.4.3 is
no longer required.
Previously, all devices of the same type were allocated

described in the OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1 Release Notes,
Section 4.4.3 is no longer required.
The record speed and the process priority may now be
specified on the command line. The workaround described
in the OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1 Release Notes, Section 4.4.4
is no longer required.

o CDRECORD status fixes
SCSI and IDE drive status was not being checked properly
causig error status states to be reported incorrectly.
This fix also allows the customer to verify that a
written CD-R media matches the source of the data copied.
During the write operation, there is no guarantee that
the data was written properly. Verifying the media
causes all written data to be read back and checked.
Images Affected: [SYSEXE]CDRECORD.EXE
o Burnproof Fix

hardware. This is present on the drive shipped on DS25
