xman12,
The CDROM is a proprietary 2x Panasonic model CR-563-B.
The driver for it can be found here:
http://www.panasonic.com/host/support/core-softwaresupport.html
(Go to Device Drivers/OEM CD & DVD-ROM page to download it.)

The soundcard is made by Aztech and is a combination CDROM interface/soundcard/14.4k fax-modem.
Windows95 comes with native drivers for this Packard Bell combo card.
Let me know if you need help setting it up.
Regards,
Ralph

What do you mean when you say you want to use the cdrom alone?
You MUST have a Panasonic interface to control it.(proprietary)
The correct interface is buit-in on the PB soundcard.
Cdrom controller cards exist with the Panasonic interface.  Either alone, or in combination with others.(Sony, Mitsumi, etc.)
Although the 40-pin data cable used with this drive is the same as that used for IDE, you cannot operate this drive on an IDE port.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

Just get another controller card for it!  If you can find one, they're not expensive.
Or, you could leave it in the system along with the new one. (If you have another drive bay for it)

It has to be a Panasonic-type of interface.  The card can be manufactured by anyone.
I've seen many brands of controller cards with three interfaces. (Sony, Mitsumi, Panasonic)

You should use the one called "56xdos.exe", listed for the CR-563.
This is the real-mode driver used by Dos to recognize the CDROM.
Proper syntax in the config.sys file is important to set it up.
Let me know if you need help to set it up.
