CD ROM drivers
I found a file that automatically installed my CD ROM drivers for
DOS and everything is working fine now.
I have an HP Pavilion model 8756c. Recently I am unable to access the CD
drives. (The failure is probably related to recently running a defrag and
disc-cleanup.) When I go to Device Manager is see two drives listed - LG
CD-ROM CDR-8483B and Mitsumi CR-4804TE. There is an icon - a yellow circle
with an exclamation point - next to each device. If I click on the item and
go to properties is see a message - "Windows cannot load the device driver
for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing". There is a
troubleshooting feature available that guides me through un...pcmcia cd rom driver
I would like to install Linux on my laptop, which is running DOS and
Win 3.1 at the moment. Does anyone know of a floppy-loading driver for
my "General" pcmcia cdrom drive, so that I can access the downloaded
system disk? I have a choice of Mandrake 10 or RedHat 9.2 disks.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Is it corredct to assume that any SCSI "PC" CD-ROM drive can work
woith the appropriate SCSI interface on the Amiga?
Similarly, is the CD-ROM data format (software) readable by all
Amigas? I assume the Amiga doesn't have its own CD-ROM data format?
I'm thinking of the Aminet CD's, for example - are these in a
"universal" CD-ROM file format?
The Aminet CDROMs are in ISO9660 format, which is a standard readable by
most computers. It is not an amiga standard. AFAIK there is no 'special'
standard CDROM file system for the amiga.
Also, I believe any SCSI CDROM will work.

I have a good bootable CD-Rom which includes nic drivers to ghost
desktops/laptops. It works fine, but i found out that it didn't include
a particular nic driver for one desktop model.
Now this bootable CD-Rom won't let me just add the nic driver, so i
have to make a new bootable CD-Rom. What is the best way to do this?
Should i first copy the contents of the good bootable Cd to the
harddrive and add the necessary driver and then burn the hard drive
contents to a new CD-rom. I tried this under EZ Cd creator with the
bootable feature and it didn't work. Any suggestio...Assistance with bootable cd-rom creation from good bootable cd-rom

nic driver for one desktop model. All the nic drivers are located in a
particular folder. All i have to do is add that driver in the folder.

I recently aquired a 12X Toshiba CD-ROM drive to use with my G3 Mac but
the Mac won't recognize the drive. I have been searching and found
reference to two different hacks to solve the problem. I downloaded and
tried one called "CD-Sunrise v2.2c" and it works as advertised which
means it only works for computer data CDs and not music CDs.
Another solution is to modify the standard Apple CD driver using
ResEdit but the link I have found for the instructions

Aquired an Archos Overdrive CD PCMCIA card + CD ROM drive and need some help
I think the supplied PSU has cooked the CD ROM unit. Its a 13v PSU and the
manual says it should be 12v. I know I should have checked :-(
When I power it up with a 12v adapter, I get nothing.
Inside the CD ROM housing is a normal IDE CD Drive with a small PCB to
convert the internal IDE interface to a DB25 external interface which the
Archos PCMCIA cards cable connects to. I think I'm gonna have to get someone
to check out this PCB to see if something is fried, but I can't see any
Is there anything else around that I can connect to the Archos PCMCIA card,
or is it proprietry connector that will only work with their CD unit?
Cheers for any help anyone can offer to get this thing working

...SCSI CD-ROM Driver Problem
Okay, this isn't specifically Windows 3.1 related, but it does involve a
Win 3.1 project I'm trying to do.
I have a system that is equipped with an old Sony CDU-76S CD-ROM drive
connected to an Adaptec AHA-1542CF SCSI adapter. Currently, the system
it is used on is my hardware testing station, which runs Windows 98SE.
The drive is recognized by Windows and works fine there. However, when
I boot up with a DOS boot disk, the drivers failed to load (to get
Windows installed, I had to attach an IDE CD-ROM drive).

Well, I got a CD-ROM disk from an individual, who created ("burned") the
CD from her (workstation, I assume) computer from her business's
network. My current Warp 4, FP #15, DDK #2, Latest IDEDASD.EXE files

OS/2 is booting, OS/2 is unable to boot-up.
I can read all other CDs that I have bought or received, including with

I was just woundering when you burn/ read a CD is it the firmware on
the CD driver that determines the position and what standard is used
to burn the cd or can this be controlled using a driver?
Im kinda interested in this, does anyone no were i can get well
commented source code for a cd driver?
if I wanted to muck about and not use the standard cd format how would
you go about it?

I have a Smart and Friendly CD-R drive (SCSI) and it does not work very will
in my 3000T! I have a MKII060, 128MB, 18GB IBM HD, and OS 3.9. The CD-ROM
mounts fine and works somewhat ok. What it does is read real slow and
sometimes hangs when copying files / loading programs from the CD itself in
Workbench (Using icons to drag/drop). But when I copy files from DirOpus4 it
seems to work ok! Weird. It's in the middle of a SCSI chain so it has no
termination. I also have to install a external terminator on the SCSI port
to even boot the machine. So termination is fine AFAIK. I played with the
SCSI prefs and that didn't help. I tested this CD-R in a PC and it read and
burned a disc fine. Any ideas?
Here is how it is setup:

...Help with libcdio CD-ROM driver for AIX
I started an AIX driver for libcdio
(http://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio). It isn't very good. In fact it
is mosly broken and I could use help.
Is there any good documentation on how to access a CD-ROM on AIX from
a user level such as to read the CD? Right now it seems that you have
to be root to even open the CD. Many of the SCSI passthrough commands
don't seem to work, although a couple do.
If there is no progress on the AIX driver before the next libcdio
release, it will be pulled. libcdio does compile fine otherwise for
image drivers (cdrdao, nrg, bin/cue).

I am trying to perform a clean install of W98SE onto a Toshiba 3110CT
laptop with an external PCMCIA CD drive (model F-TO-TCD-24L --
actually a Freecom Cable II PCCard.) I am using a Freecom
PCMCIA/Cardbus driver. The CD drive initialization appears fine and
the device driver is detected. No drive has yet been allocated,
The problem is that on system restart I get the following error
message at the top of the screen:
"There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 6".
(Contents of CONFIG.SYS shown below. Bottom line is line 6.)
--------------------------...CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives reading High Speed and Ultra Speed CD-RW Discs
I finally moved up to a High Speed burner (first a Plextor, and then a
Lite-On), and I would like to buy a DVD-ROM drive that will read at
least High Speed CD-RW's. I can't find any information that will tell
me for sure whether a drive can read a High Speed CD-RW. The
"Multiread" format specifications I've read so far only deal with the
generic CD-RW format.
I just know that my Asus 50X CD-ROM can't read the High Speed CD-RWs
but the DVD-ROM drive on my Sony Vaio laptop (PCG-F540) can do so (the
drive is 6X for DVD-ROM).
Any resources that can steer me straight?
