I have a dead CD rom in a Presario 1270 laptop and I also have a flattened disk drive. I am attempting to use a USB CD ROM or R/RW drive. I tried Duse.exe 4.4 and it fired up the USB bus but it would not install the CD device. It even assigned a drive leter but then it wouldn't install. I have also tried USB_CD.sys but druing boot up I get an "invalid parameter" error when the config.sys tries to use the device. What parameters is dos refering to and how do I fix this? Thank you.
OK since that doesn't appear to have worked and I don't have win 95c on disk... Is there a way to connect to my computer with another through a parallel direct connection and install win 98 or 2000 that way? I don't have a parallel CD device.
