CDU33a works in DOS, not seen in win95!
Posted on 1998-10-04
I have installed a replacement HDD for the already existing physical D: drive, now there is a drive C:, D:, and logical E:, bumping the cdrom drive up one letter to F: A command prompt within Windows [DOS] sees this drive letter fine and the cdrom is accessable. Windows does not show the drive in "My Computer" or Device Man. At first it would not work AT ALL until I added the /L:F to the end of the mscdex.exe line in autoexec.bat file. After that it worked but only as described above. Is there something special about this particular model [Sony - cdu33a] and it's seeming inability to use a drive letter above E:? I have also tried the hardware detection wizard with no luck. I have looked high and low for Win95 drivers but none seem to be available - even on the sony webpage.
Any help appreciated.
