ESCD - Extended System Configuration DataBase:
A format for holding comprehensive data about PC System Resources, including ISA cards and Plug and Play cards. ESCD data can be stored in a disk file or non-volatile memory.
ESCD was specifically useful for Platforms with non-plug and play operating systems or employing add-on plug and play support which were unable to automatically configure all plug and play devices in all cases.
Unfortunately while Microsoft is trying to decide what they want to do with PCDesGuide.com, they now make mention of pointing to yet another site of nothing - hwdev.org. We'll have to wait and see as to what those plans entail. Don't expect much. For now, try: PCDesGuide.org Enjoy! GB
