CD-ROM won't mount!

I have a Toshiba XM-3501TA that won't mount using PC-Exchange (locks at startup) or SCSI Probe.  Toshiba says I need to shell out $50 for FWB's CD-ROM Toolkit.  Why?  I don't want all those utilities, I just want the driver!!!
Does anyone have a driver that will support my CD-ROM?  I don't think Apple's will, I have System 7.6.1 installed on my Mac IIsi.

The only utility that really comes with FWB is an audio player.  I don't understand why toshiba wouldn't give you a copy of the program with the drive.  Try contacting them, and ask to speak to a manager.  maybe they will see the light.

Unless Toshiba is amazingly cheap, they should have shipped a Driver with the CD-ROM Drive.  Try and find the disk that came with the Drive, and see if it has a driver for you.  Neither PC Exchange or SCSI Probe work with CD-ROMs because they act differently than Hard Disks.  In order to use them you need the CD-ROM Driver.  If you can't find it try and look up their web page.

The reason they told you to use FWB is because it has a driver that works with all CD-ROMS.
