Dos Drivers for CDRom don't work
Posted on 1998-07-13
I'm trying to reformat my hard drive. I have 2 HD, currently C: is 1.0GB and D: is 2.0GB, with E: as the CDRom. My problem is that I made a startup disk like I've read in several other answers to related questions, but I've also come across differing versions of what's supposed to be in the config.sys and autoexec.bat files.
My CDRom driver is called: SBIDE.SYS (which is fairly common)
My autoexec.bat says:
MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD000 /V /L:E
My config.sys says:
DEVICE=SBIDE.SYS/D:MSCD000 /V /L:E
As far as I knew, this was fine and ought to work, but "No CDRom Installed" is the constant message. Please help me figure these lines out in these two critical files. Should everything be written as: A:\SBIDE.SYS/D:MSCD000 /V /L:E, for example?
What am I doing wrong? All other files on floppy are required .sys, .com, and .exe files.
thanks for your help!
