I have a Creative Labs 52x Atapi CD-Rom drive and have recently formated my hard-disc. The program MSCDEX.EXE can not find the drive when I use the extension "/d:mscd001". Can anyone help?

Have you also loaded the CD driver in the config.sys?

DEVICEHIGH=C:\SAMSUNG\SSCDROM.SYS /D:SSCD000 /v

My autoexec.bat has this line:

 lh C:\SAMSUNG\MSCDEX /D:SSCD000

As smn198 has clearly pointed out you do need a cdrom driver to be loaded into config.sys for the cdrom to be seen in DOS. You do not need a driver for the device in windows. Windows will use the default atapi device driver to communicate with the cd-rom.

If you really do need to use the device in dos then use the oakcdrom.sys file that is included with win98 and is found on the windows 98 startup disk.

let me know if you need this driver and I will E-mail it to you.

hogman226@lineone.net

your config.sys should then look like:

device=oakcdrom.sys /d:mscd001

then your autoexec.bat OR dosstart.bat should include:

mscdex /d:mscd001 /l:z

the /l: tells it what drive letter to assign to the cd rom!!
