Two SCSI CD-ROM drives under Win95

I currently use a HP 4020i CD Writer with the AdvanSys ISA SCSI Host Adapter in a Pentium 133 MHz system with no problems. I attempted to install my old NEC 500 3x
CD-ROM drive using the Trantor Media Vision SCSI Host Controller (on my Pro Audio Studio sound card) and both the HP and NEC CD drives are listed in the System Properties/Device Manager. However, I cannot get Windows 95 to assign the NEC a drive letter. When I checked its properties, there is nothing in "current drive letter assignment" for the NEC. The HP still functions as
normal.

I have drivers for the HP in my autoexec.bat and config.sys files so I can access the CD-ROM drive under DOS. The solution given at the MicroSoft site was to assign the HP reserved drive letters and reboot. I tried that, but the NEC was still not assigned a drive letter.

I want to be able to use the NEC drive to copy CDs to the HP. For the record, there are no conflicts listed for anything in the System Properties/Device Manager. I also attempted to force the NEC to use a drive letter by using the "reserved drive letters" option under its properties,
but that did not help. Thanks.

Check the last letter in the config.sys, and make sure it is high enough (like M to Z)
Second I'd get a copy of tweak UI at microsoft.com.
You can set the drive letters for the computer through the program, simply check the boxes next to the letter, reboot and it should pick up the cd rom.
