MKE Panasonic CDROM Driver

By andy32 ·
I'm trying to find a MKE Panasonic CDROM driver for a Soundblaster 16 card(non plug n' play) model No CT1750. I've found the spec for the CT1750 on Creative's site, but I've had no joy on either Panasonic's or Matsushita's sites regarding a MKE Panasonic cdrom driver. Any help (as you all know) would be greatly appreciated,

Cheers,

Andy

Finding drivers for CDROMs and sound; I go to driverguide.com. they have listings of some of the most obscure drivers you could think of. Free registration. I signed up over a year ago and my subscription is still active. very quality site.

I beleive that this CD uses an old proprietary IDE interface. Make sure that you soundblaster has an IDE connection that has Panasonic written on the board. While the connection on newer soundcards is physically the same the hardware on the older ones were designed specifically for certain CD-ROMS and will not work on a standard CD-ROMS. Conversly, the panasonic will not work with normal IDE interfaces, even with the proper drivers.

Here is a page from Panasonic's site for OEM cd-rom drives like your SB.

http://www.panasonic.com/host/support/software-drivers-oem-cd-r.html

If you look on the drive you'll see a CR-5xx number. Just find the drivers you need on this page from that number.

Good Luck
