CD-ROM "not accessible. drive not ready"
Posted on 1998-07-09
cd was working fine. playing audio cd, then all of a sudden no more sound. since then, the busy light just blinks whenever the drive is opened and closed with a disk in it.
get "not accessible. drive not ready" msg whenever try to view contents of that drive.
get "buffer miscompare" error with scsi diagnostics.
just before it stopped working, i closed a unix shell window while using the EXCEED pc x-server.
i have a pentium 100, win95, & pinnacle micro recordable cd drive with a 1540CP adaptec card.
since the drive and configuration have been working fine for 2 years, has the drive gone bad, gotten dirty...?
