DOS and 2X  CDROM

Posted on 1998-08-24

Last Modified: 2012-05-04
I have DOS 6.0 installed.I tried to install the cd-rom (mitsumi 2X) with the setup program (download from mitsumi (fx116)).It is connected to a Aztec sound galaxy nz pro sound card with the MT IRQ 11 jumper enabled.
I get a error message " cd-rom is not detected, driver not loaded"
When I physical switch hard drives, to one that I have win98 loaded on the cdrom works properly.
Really I don't have a major problem because the computer will work with the win98 HD installed, But I would like to find out why the cdrom is hard to configure under dos 6.0.
here is my autoexec.bat
C:\BIN\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /M:10
SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D3 T4
SET SOUND=C:\MMPRO
LH /L:0;1,42384 /S C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE
@ECHO OFF
PROMPT $P$G
PATH C:\MOUSE;C:\DOS
MOUSE
SET TEMP=C:\DOS
DOSSHELL
here is my config.sys
LASTDRIVE=Z
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
BUFFERS=15,0
FILES=30
DOS=UMB
FCBS=4,0
DEVICEHIGH /L:1,12048 =C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE
DOS=HIGH
DEVICE=C:\DEV\MTMCDAS.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:300 /A:0

This may seem as a foolish suggestion but see to it that
MTMCDAS.SYS and MSCDEX.EXE are in the folders they are supposed to be in.
The error you mention may come if MTMCDAS.SYS is not available and
MSCDEX.EXE is run.

POI,

   You don't have to reward me for this since it is an extension of your earlier problem.

Please go to this URL for anything you could want to know about the FX001D and more.

Check for a message after the line:
DEVICE=C:\DEV\MTMCDAS.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:300 /A:0
is executed.  Something maybe wrong here.

Try unplugging the cable from the sound card and installing the cdrom drive as the secondary master right on the motherboard.

SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D3 T4
Try I11
does your sound card works under dos?
does it take only 1 irq?
what kind of computer is it?

That won't work.  This Mitsumi CD-ROM uses a "proprietary"
interface, rather than a "standard" IDE interface.
So, it _MUST_ connect via the Mitsumi-port on the sound-card.

P.S. Any "jumpers" on the sound-card, to allow/disallow
configuration-updates?

Have you got a line in your config.sys which refers to the CDRom such as
device=C:\NEC_BM.SYS /D:OEMCD001
if this (or something similar) is not there then this may explain it

Look at the LAST line in the question where it displays the contents of the config.sys.

btw in your config.sys DOS=HIGH should be placed before attempting to load a devicehigh.
Some feedback from you would be appreciate
have you tried setting the blaster at I11?
