I recently bought a used Samsung SW-216B CDRW from 4seller.com
I’m trying to install it on a Windows 98 machine and having very little luck. This is only the second or third CDROM device I’ve installed.
In the config.sys, I have
device=c:\cdrom\sscdrom.sys /D:SSCD000 /P:1F0H,14
On boot, it appears to recognize the cd and gives me the SSCD000 ID as being the name of the CD and the logical unit is 0.
When I try to access the drive within Windows, I get “Drive not Ready, Retry, Cancel” messages.
Under the system properties tab it recognizes the drive as a Samsung CD-R/RW sW-216B.
Options are set to Disconnect and Auto Insert notification both on.
Once, I tried setting Sync Data Transfer to on and was able to play an audio CD in the drive.
I rebooted and can no longer play the cd. I’ve switched this setting on and off a couple of times, rebooting each time, with no luck.
I have also tried setting DMA to on, but that has no effect.
I’ve deleted the registery entry under HK_LOCAL_MACHINE/enum/SCSI and rebooted to no effect.
As an attempt at getting this to work in DOS mode,
In the autoexec.bat I have
When I reboot in dos mode, I cannot access the E drive (the CDRW device).
Is this a bad drive or am I missing a step or two?
