Command In Dos to recognize CD ROM on Wi

By georgie8 ·
Have a game that is to be played in DOS. Game plays off a CD. When I go to DOS and try to install DOS cannot recognize my CD ROM. CD ROM is new and operating OK. Having no hardware problems.

Is there a command?

Command In Dos to recognize CD ROM on Wi

I have seen this problem many times and have cured it with a simple fix of making another Win98 emergency boot disk, and adding to the autoexec.bat file the command line for the game ie: C:\NASCAR, and always booting it with CDROM Support.

In config.sys file you must have command
devicehigh=c:\oakcdrom.sys /d:000
in
autoexec.bat file you must have command
c:\windows\command\mscdex /d:000

if you want your cd-rom to work afrter chhosing start->shut down->restart to msd-dos modethen in file dosstart.bat located in windows dir you must have a line like in a autoexec.bat

P.S
Oakcdrom.sys is located on win 98 emergency boot disk. and will work if a cd-rom is ide :)
