Being not worth, I cast myself prostrate at the feet of anyone
knowledgeable, or to be quite frank, anyone interested enough in reading
My problem is that I have an old (brought new in 92) 486/33 with a 120MG
HDD, on which I'm trying to hook up a CD drive. Running it the same way
- connected to the HDD, and through the HDD controller, it works fine on
a newer (albeit EIDE ) machine, but on the old 486 I get the message:
"No device drives found, aborting installation." Then the next line
Device driver not found: 'NEC_CD'
No valid CDROM device drivers selected.
Although the CD is an NEC X4, I get the same result using a Creatives
X24, so I assume it's not the install program, as each CD comes with its
own. Naturally, I have tried different data cables, as I know they can
sometimes cause problems, but it's all been to no avail.
So if there is someone wiilling out there, who can help me on
this, you'll inherit a friend for life - whether you want one or not!
Thanks in anticipation,
