I was happily playing a CD (Bach Goldberg Variations - Jill Crossland on piano...best version by far!) and then I thought...hmmm...'why not rip the CD to my drive with this ACC prog?'. Then I thought I would change the settings from 16bit/44.1kHz to 8bit/25kHz, so that I could play it through the STe DMA hardware. Pretty harmless you might assume but at the next bootup, the STe showed the 'busy bee' mouse pointer and then....crash.....three bombs! After much mucking about trying to reinstall ExtenDOS and failing, I simply renamed the CD Audio player ACC to disable it and then the STe booted as normal minus this ACC. Later I managed to reinstall ExtenDOS from the floppy drive and I also successfully burned a couple more CDs, one of which was a backup image of the now less than perfect C:\ drive. Sod's Law really because I was going to do the backup shortly anyhow. The weird thing is that despite reinstalling ExtenDOS the CD Audio ACC is still buggered.
4160STE - as 1040STE but with 4 MB of RAM. Never officially released except a small quantity of development units. Labels were sent out to dealers to affix to machines that had been upgraded to 4MB.
