How about a "swap 8" for the 4th button? A lot of programs want you to have device 8 and to just press a button to swap it's device with device 8 would be very nice. Like on the CMD drives.

Swap it with what? Do you mean you would have the uIEC as a device other than 8, and pressing the button would make it become 8?

Seems like it be a easy code. But I guess not. I don't even know what program language it uses.

No it be some other device beside 8 and what ever device it 8 it swap with it. So if a 1571 is device 8 and the uIEC is device 10 then the 1571 would be 10 and the uIEC would be 8.

That is how the swap 8 button works on the CMD drives. FD-4000/2000,  RAMlink, and the hard drive.
