I want to install a cd burner, on w95.
The problem is:
In Device Manager I don't have CR-Rom category. The burner software doesn't find the cd burner.
My primary and secondary IDE controller(dual fifo) have a !, maybe it is for this.

I hope there is enough information.

Also see if there is BIOS upgrade for your system.

Make sure you have the proper cables and sometimes you do need to set the jumper on the back as master before it will show up. Also plug this CD into the same cable as the hardrive with the jumpers set to slave and see if it shows up.

Win 95 should have these drivers unless you remember installing specific drirvers for these items at some time.

Any try moving the CD to the hard disk cable first. And completely remove the secondary cable from the machine and see what happens. This doesn't require deleting anything from the registry.

It comes across to me that the drivers for the controllers have gotten messed up. That was the reason I suggested deleting them from the Device Manager so Win95 could refresh the drivers.

I took off in safe mode the CdRom and I have always the ! on the primary and secondary Controllers. It was old drivers that not correspond with the actual CdRom.
