I have a sony cdrom that uses the old sony bus interface card.  The interface card is cdb-23x series, and I can't find my manual for the jumper settings.  I have sent e-mails to sony for some assistance, but there has been no response.  Does anyone know which jumpers set what (and their values, too)?

Note: A total of 256 base address settings are available.  The switches are a binary representation of the decimal memory addresses.
 SW1/8 is the Most Significant Bit and switch SW1/1 is the Least Significant Bit.
The switches have the following decimal values: SW1/8=512, SW1/7=256, SW1/6=128, SW1/5=64, SW1/4=32, SW1/3=16, SW1/2=8, SW1/1=4.  
Turn off the switches and add the values of the switches to obtain the correct memory address.  (Off=1, On=0)

2        On        Off        Off        Off        Off        Off
