NEW "fake drives"!
Posted on 1998-01-16
I have just re-installed my win95 on my notebook, but two extra drives have now appeared!
My computer is a Pentium 150 MHz, 32 MB RAM, 2 GB HD, external SCSI CD-R and HP 4p (also SCSI).
They cannot be accessed and are called "non-permanent drive" (translated from danish).
I now have drive "a,c,d,e,f,g" where "d" and "e" are the ones. My "a" is discdrive, "c" is main drive, "f" is CD-ROM and "g" is SCSI CD-R.
I have seen that other people have the same problem but doesn´t get an answer.
Before i re-installed win95 i used the command "format c:" to format my HD. Can it have anything to do with the formatting?
The drives is not listed in Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Disk Drives. The only place i can see them is in explorer and My Computer and in DOS.
FDISK only shows my "C:" drive.
What about PCMCIA-cards, can they cause the trouble? I have got a Psion Dacom PCMCIA-modem.
If you enter Control Panel/System, and select the last tab which sayssomething about the computers ressources, there are two notes in the white area. They say that drive d: and e: "uses MS-DOS comperative-mode" (not sure if right translation)
The reason that i re-installed win95 is because of the eternal bugs in win95 that causes it to hang or crash, which it allmost did every 20 minute!
I hope you are able to help:)
