Hello Friends, Emily PMed the new programs to you, thank you for testing.
It's working okay for me with a Samsung ST1500LM006 (6 heads).  One problem I notice, is that the heading information in DDP is not scaled properly, so it cuts off the capacity in GB figure, as shown below.


Another is that it reports that it is imaging always from head 2, even though 65.0 GB (69,846,171,648 bytes) have been imaged so far.  If I disable imaging from head 2 and press Start, it says "looking ahead" followed quickly by indicating that it is imaging using head 4. However, it does nothing.  Stop task doesn't stop the task--I have to power off DDP.

I just tried it with a WD My Passport USB drive and it would not prepare the map for selective head imaging, but it didn't crash DDP.  It must be a problem with the drive because I then tried it with a WD SATA disk mounted in a USB drive dock and it did selective head imaging normally.  Disabled all but head 1 and it progressed, skipping heads 0 and 2, just imaging using head 1, as configured.

Another thing I just noticed, version  1.666 does not work in Windows 10 whereas 1.665 did (except that the data transfer rate map was not displayed, so I had no idea of progress or speed***).  With 1.666, the program looks like it is going to run (Windows asks if you want to allow it to run or not) but no GUI displays and there is no DDP task in Task Manager **.  (The same happens with the latest beta version of DFL-SS.)  

1. ** I just discovered it did the same thing with Win7 x86.
2. *** I just discovered that the transfer speed/progress map only works with block size of 128 bytes on my Win 7 x86 PC running DDP 1.665.

I think this feedback should be moved to the DDP Trouble-shooting and Tips forum, under a new topic for "DDP 1.666 Testing"
Please send me the PM to test this new version
