Missing CDROM Drive

By ofleming ·
I created a windows 95 boot disk and formatted the C: Drive. When I rebooted, I had lost contact with the CDROM Drive. After opening the case and discovering the CDROM drive model (CD620E) I found the appropriate driver on teh web and installed ( itsaid it installed correctly). Yet, when I rebooted I still couldn't access the CDROM drive ( ). Any thoughts about how to get around this as I need to reload Windows and only have it on disc.

Thanks,
Odette

It looks like your autoexec.bat has some wrong parameters, did you make this one from scratch or did you use the bootflop option in win98.
Anyway it should look like this:

LH \MSCDEX.EXE /D:cd1 /D:cd2 /D:cd3

put the mscdex.exe in the root

there are many ways to automaticaly make bootdisks
you can use partition magic 7 or ghost 2001.
Making one from scratch is still not very easy and you have to no what you do.
good luck
