Meade DSI III INdI driver was created by AstroNerd

Hi,
I have one of these older Meade DSI III mono cameras which has the same sensor as the Atik 314L+ and I see there is an Meade DSI INdI driver here but only for the version I And II but not the III....

www.indilib.org/devices/ccds/meade-dsi-pro.html

So is anybody able to adapt this driver to work with this camera....or is that not an option, I wish I was clever enough to do it.. :(

I think III might be supported. Check this bit of the code:

Many thanks for taking the time to check this, yes I have now tried the camera and you are correct it does work, and seems to work well and is recognised correctly as DSI III.. :)

There is one setting in the INdI driver I am not sure about though, it is an VPP on and VPP off button labelled DSI III Exposure.... any ideas..??
