New CD drive install
Posted on 1997-07-04
I have installed a new cd drive. This is a new IDE drive on a new IDE interface (because this older machine did not have another ide connection on the motherboard). Anyway, following all instructions that came with the board and cd drive - The cd drive will open and close, The computer appears to recognize that the board and drive is there EXCEPT that IT REALLY DOESN'T !!! The computer does not allow you to access the cd drive AND does not place the "D" drive into the system... Basicly I have a 1/2 install. What do I need to do to get the computer to recognize the drive and allow it to function?
I will give all 200 points to the expert that supply me with all the details necessary to complete this installation !!!
Remember that we are talking about win 3.11.
It is my sons computer - And I am only familiar with win 95.
I did check the autoexec and configsys - Both contain lines that were placed there by the cd install disk.
There are NO errors at startup..It acts like everything is correct and ready to go.. But it won't.
