mitsumi ATAPI 2x CDROM

Post by Jay Ts » Fri, 16 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I have a mitsumi 2X ATAPI cdrom drive and linux kernel 1.2.8.  How can I
tell which IDE interface my cd-rom drive is connected to?  I don't know
if it's primary or secondary or 1st or 2nd.  Is there a simple way to
tell?  I have a 1 gig IDE hard drive as well.  This is probably a stupid
question but any help is appreciated.  When I configure the cd and I ask
the setup to autoprobe for which interface it is connected to, it
reports that it doesn't find a cdrom drive.  If I could figure out which
one it's on I'll just force it set up there instead of trying to
autoscan for it.  Thanks

rebooted. Then I booted again. and again just to make sure. This is what I'm
