IBM TP755C wont run CD-ROM under Win95
Posted on 1998-04-30
I have an IBM Thinkpad 755C and also an IBM External PCMCIA CD-ROM Drive Model
#9545-FOE. The problem is that windows 95 will not recognize the CD-rom. The Rom
Drive works on the Notebook in DOS (Real DOS, not WIndows Dos) booted from a floppy.
I have been to IBM website and found that there are no drivers for this Rom. IT is supposed
to work with WIn95 drivers. I have tried re-installing Windows95 with the same result. The Rom
drive is always turned on before booting the notebook.
I have tried re-installing the CD-rom device in win95, but when the program recognizes the
New Hardware, the option to use "windows drivers" is greyed out. When I try to install a CD-rom
driver, there are only three option, Sony, and two others. There is no "default" driver available.
I hope this makes sense, I have been going nuts trying to get this Rom to work under win95.
