CD ROM not detected in DOS

CD ROM not detected in DOS

Post by Mike Eva » Fri, 11 Dec 1998 04:00:00

I have a friend who can't get his computer to recognize the CDROM when booting into DOS-MODE. The
driver tries to load but it says that the CDROM is not detected, or communication was lost, etc. The
CDROM is detected when he boots into WIN95.  We are at a loss as to why it won't work in DOS Mode
and have tried everything under the sun to get it to work.

His CDROM is a Sony CDU-33A.

1. CD-Rom Drive not detected in DOS

I'm in the middle of doing a clean sweep of my parent's system, the only
problem stopping me is trying to get DOS to recognize my CD-Rom so I can
install Windows from there. It's an old 2X Mitsumi drive. I've already
downloaded drivers off the internet and put the appropriate lines in
config.sys and autoexec.bat. I still get the message "CD-Rom drive not
found. Driver will not be installed" on bootup. What gives? My BIOS
recognizes the drive, as does Windows. Can anyone shed some light on
this? It's been driving me up the wall!
