How do I setup a sound blaster 16 and CD-Rom?
Posted on 2000-05-01
Computer 486DX4, DOS 6.22, Windows 3.1, Soundblaster 16 card is by Creative Technologies(CT 2230). CD Rom is a Sony CDU33A-C3(it has the name Creative MPC2 on the front opening and I think its a 2X.)Do both items need a driver? or just one? I have tried the drivers from the Sony and Creative Technology sites but my CD-Rom is never recognized during boot ups or when I put a disk inside. It used to be letter :E but I cant get that from dos either. The sony CD-Rom power light is on, but during startup I get the same ole cant find the CD-Rom.I have checked the ribbon cable to the soundcard, the power cable, and another 4 pin little cable that connects the card and the CD-Rom. I had this CD working fine until I corrupted the files, formatted, and sad to say I dont have the original disk drivers for the soundcard and CD Rom. This computer has two hard drives (C:, D:), D being bigger of the two. Please help, I have tried and need your expertise. Thanks- CoolFellow
