HCT Test group does not contain my device class

    Hello all,
    My device is a PCI card that contains two regions of flash memory.
    I wrote the driver for the PCI card a controller. The driver then creates two
    disk devices. I created a class ID for my PCI card device.
    Now when I install HCT, I select almost all the device group under storage
    class
    (including SCSI, ATATI, RAID, others, etc.), but when HCT manager comes up
    It scans thru everything but does not see my PCI device. I only see the two
    disk devices that were created by the PCI device driver.

    Question:
    + Is it true that the HCT cannot any device that are of a new class?
    + If not, then what did I do wrong?
    + If true, what are the alternative?
    + Is it enough to just submit the test results for the two disk drive?
    + If not, what class can I make my PCI card device belong? SCSI
    controller, ATATI controller, floppy controller, or whatesle?

    Thank you.

    Creating your own class id is discouraged (or it is last time I checked,
    before that it was encouraged.) There will obviously be no specific tests
    for a class you invented. There is a 'universal' device test, but you are a
    storage device so you ought to pick one of the storage classes, use that,
    and test your storage device. I rather doubt you will get whql'd otherwise.
