Soft Windows

I put soft windows 3.1 and I can read IBM disks, but I also want to be able to use CD, it does not recognise the CD's. What can I do. I have a Performa 631 CD -- PC compatable and ungradable. 16 RAM
Thank you
Linda

When you say that you can read IBM disks, I'm assuming that
you're referring to floppy disks.  I've never used soft windows 3.1, but I highly recommend another app called DOS Mounter 95.  With this software, which costs about $85, you can mount, read and write to any "PC" removable media and magneto-optical drives.  It comes with a utility which will also allow you to format and partition these drives as well, choosing from DOS, Macintosh, or a mix of the two formats.  (ie. You'll be able to access floppies
AND CD's AND any SCSI devices you might have, like SyQuest, Zip,
JAZ, etc.)

Dos Mounter is made by a company called Software Architects.  I
have been able to find it in any medium sized computer store.

Good luck.
