How can I slow down my Mitsumi FX810T4!B cd-rom drive? I have already tried ' /S:0' but that doesn't work.

Please tell me how I can set a maximum speed of 300 or 600 kb/s.

Thank you

I don't know yet but you could start at:
End User support for Mitsumi products is provided by ECI.
If you prefer you can use the ECI 800 number:  1-800-801-7927

Is CD-ROM drive jumpered as a Slave (the CD-ROM drive is alone on the second port)
change the CD-ROM jumper to Master
the secondary IDE port on the controller card may need a Windows 95 driver

It 's all well connected... I've got some experience, but there seems to be no such functionality available.

What do you mean when you say,"but there seems to be no such functionality available." Are you talking about the original question.

Yes, I do. The parameter ' /s:0' doesn't work. And it seems that this is the only (not working) hint that the men at the support site can give me.

hi mstier,
Are you saying that you called the ECI 800 number and they gave you no responce, or non-satisfactory answers?

The Matsushita CR-581b CD-ROM uses the same drivers as the
Panasonic CR-581b CD-ROM.  You can get this from:

I'm thinking you may need new drivers.

What do you think?

I'll try it... and they told me about ' /s:0' but it doesn't work. The driver seems to accept the parameter - at least it doesn't make an error message.
