Cyberdrive 52X CD-Rom - Hardware Instal

By bellsarecalling ·
Somehow lost my CDrom functionality. CDRom inaccessible was highlighted.So checked Win98se Add Hardware section to find out.Cdrom not detected. Did manual search for CDROM. Alo! No Installation disk!!!
Checked Cyberdrive website. Driver not needed,as Windows has one for ATAPI.

Checked bios on M/board.Ticked HDD as master, Cdrom as slave.

Above came to square one again. My system ...
Asus K7V-RM Slot A M/Board, Athlon 600 CPU.
Can anyone help?? Also,I wish to upgrade to faster AMD cpu.Any suggestion as there are so many out there.

Double check the jumpers (even though you said you did), and also make sure the cables are firmly seated in the system board. Also, if at all possible, see if you can swap out the cd-rom. It is possible even if the bios sees the cd-rom, that windows may not. Also, try updating your bios.

I apologise for not putting my problem in a more proper context. It was a 'software' problem and solved with a line in the config.sys file viz:-

DEVICE=C:\CDPRO\VIDE-CDD.SYS /D:MSCD001

Thanks for the trouble.

Regards,
Andrew

It was a 'software' and not hardware problem as most would think...per various articles about CDROM in this column.

It was fixed with this line in the Config.sys file

DEVICE=C:\CDPRO\VIDE-CDD.SYS /D:MSCD001


My apology to all who misconstrued my question. I was'nt properly put at the frustrating moment.

Regards.
Andrew
