Goldstar CD-ROM detection and standard ATAPI driver?

My Goldstar 6X, supposedly Win 95 compatible, does not get detected, and thus I cannot assing a 32-bit Win 95 generic driver to it, as is mentioned in the manual (there are no Goldstar specific drivers available - I checked).  I am left using DOS drivers to access my CD-ROM in Win95, which I am guessing is slowing performance down.  I find no way of adding a new CD-ROM within the hardware control box, and the CD is not detected by "add new hardware" with or without the DOS drivers loaded...

Sounds like your computer's BIOS has not properly detected the CD-ROM drive - either because of this feature missing or because of a wrong hardware setup. If the BIOS cannot detect standard ATAPI devices, you simply need to get proprietary drivers from GoldStar if Win95 has no generic driver support for this. If the BIOS can detect but either the BIOS does not detect or the BIOS detect and Win95 does not, than you should check the hardware installation: Do you have one or two IDE channels? Most likely, you will have two - than you should never setup something like channel 1 hard drive/master and CD-ROM/slave but rather channel 1 hard drive/master and channel 2 CD-ROM/master.
