LS120 3.0 driver trouble
Posted on 1998-10-07
I have an LS120 drive that has been nothing but trouble since I bought it. When I first upgraded to Windows95 I had problems with playing my audio CDs after I installed the LS120's driver. O.R. Technology's 3.0 driver fixed the problem in Windows95, but now I'm having trouble with it with the Windows98 upgrade.
Windows98 said something about a DOS real mode driver reducing the system's performance which is what Windows95 was saying the first few times I installed the 2.1 driver.
I removed the 3.0 driver in Windows98 and then reinstalled it but Windows98 wouldn't even let me in because of a HIDE LS120 remark in the Autoexex.bat. Actually, Windows98 would only let me in through safe mode apparently to remove the driver because when I removed it the system loaded normally again.
Is this a common problem with the LS120 or is it just my luck? I like the concept of the LS120 replacing the standard floppy drive, but it's driver compatibility sure does leave something to be desired. By the way, I bought the drive at CompUSA and it isn't an Imation drive. The drive works fine when the driver is installed too.
Any info on this issue sure would be helpful. Thanx.
