Inst. 2 CD rom drives in the same IDE computer.
Posted on 1998-08-16
I am attempting,(with no luck), to Install a primary cd rom to do my software work on and a 2nd cd changer for playing music on while I work. The primary is a 100x that uses a buffer of 600mb and the changer is a 4x8x. The problem is that if I start the cd changer 1st the 100x works fine. if I start the 100x 1st the changer trys to draw from the buffer and freezes the whole system. I have already tried resetting up the cdroms on different jumper settings and the only way it will come close to working is to set the 100x on 2nd master and the changer to 2nd slave. I don't know how to seperate to drives by using different IRQ settings so if that is the answer please be specific on all the steps in this process.
