SB Card and CD Drive in MSDOS mode.
Posted on 1998-10-22
I am running a 486 DX4/120 with 32 megs of ram and Windows 98. This computer, in a previous life, was an Acer Advantage 486 dx2/50, but I've upgraded. I bought the computer used without most of it's documentation. It has a Sound blaster 16 Sound Card (CT1750 with Sony/Panasonic/Mitsumi CD Interfaces) and a double speed Sony Drive (CDU33A) connected in the Sony slot.
I cannot for the life of me, get the computer to see the CD Drive in MS-Dos mode in order to run DOS based computers. I have modified the Exit To Dos program to load (what I thought) was the necessary drivers.
I load the following Drivers:
Ctsb16.sys <--I think that's the name of it.
I try loading the Sony CD Drivers (slcd.sys and sbcd.sys) and it comes back saying drives not found or powered down, driver not loaded. My settings for the soundblaster card is (i'm doing this off the top of my head, so it may not be correct): I/O:5, Irq:1,Dma:5 (i think). I can run the sound blaster diagnose.com and get it to do the sound, so I know the card itself is working.
I think that's all the information I can think of..
Any questions, you can reach me either at firstname.lastname@example.org (work) or email@example.com (home).
Thank you very much;
