SCSI CD-ROM disppeared .... Windows 98 SE
Posted on 2002-05-17
Adaptec 29160N Adapter no longer loads the Toshiba SCSI CD-ROM drive, and can't get Windows 98 SE to find it either. Rebooted in SAFE MODE, CD-ROM shown in device manager, but not in normal mode. Have tried everything, took the speed down in the Adaptec utilities to 5 MB transfer rate, all settings correct, but the CD-ROM just no longer functions. Quite suddenly.
Comments welcome with ideas.
If it looks like I have to replace the old Toshiba SCSI CD-ROM, also looking for a good idea on a CD-ROM and CD-Writer combo that is scsi based and compatible with Windows XP Pro since I'll probably upgrade from Windows 98 SE at the same time.
Really strange how it suddenly just disappeared without warning.
