Dead Cd-Rom drive??
Posted on 1998-08-15
I have a Power Computing PowerWave 150 with a StarGate (hybrid PCI/NuBus) riser
card, and, on the internal SCSI bus, 2 IBM hard disks, a Zip drive and a Toshiba 2x
CD-Rom drive as well as a Pioneer CD-Rom stacker (6 disks) on the external SCSI bus.
And, for over a year, it's all been funtioning wonderfully (under OS 7.6.1) until a few
days ago when the internal CD-Rom drive stopped mounting disks. CD-Rom Toolkit,
which I use to manage the drive, still correctly identifies the drive and the drive still
sucks disks in and the drive's light gives 5 or 6 regular flashes as it does so, but the disks
don't mount. I've tried several CD Roms and audio disks, all of which were mounting a
few days ago. I re-installed CD-Rom Toolkit but to no effect. The Pioneer stacker,
which is controlled by it's own software, still funtions normally as do the other disks on
the internal bus. Has my CD-Rom drive gone west?
Thanks in advance,
