Before you download

To get the most out of HD24tools, it is highly recommended to read (and bookmark) the online manual.

Your operating system will not recognize HD24 ADAT FST drives, and because of it, it may ask you if you want to initialize or format it. INITIALIZING THE DRIVE WILL OVERWRITE THE SUPERBLOCK OF THE DRIVE AND WILL MAKE IT UNREADABLE IN YOUR HD24 RECORDER ("Invalid Format" error). If you *did* initialize your drive, don't panic. The current version of hd24connect is still able to read these drives. If you need further assistance, let me know.

HD24tools is currently available as shareware. This means you pay for it what you think it's worth - perhaps it saved you time or money. Even modest donations are appreciated. If you wish to donate to me for developing HD24tools, use one of the following buttons to donate:

Note: Instead of this official but long obsolete release, consider 1.1.0beta Release Candidate 6b instead. It can be used safely in Read Only mode.
In Mac versions 0.8.x and 0.9.x, instead of clicking the hd24connect application icon, you will need to click the starthd24connect script that is in the package.

Release Candidates

These are versions which may still contain bugs but considered nearly ready for release. The 1.1.0beta versions are guaranteed safe to be used in read-only mode. All these release candidates include the full high-samplerate support mentioned above.
