Sound Blaster 16 and CD-ROM MITSUMI ATAPI

Hi,

I have :
1) a E-IDE HD Western Digital of 1.6 Gb (IRQ = 14, I/O port = 0x1f0-0x1f7),
2) a E-IDE HD Quantum of 850 Mb (IRQ = 15, I/O port = 0x170-0x177),
3) a Creative LabsSound Blaster 16 card (IRQ = 5, I/O port = 0x220-0x22f),
4) an ATAPI 8x MITSUMI CD-ROM on the IDE controller of the SB 16
    (IRQ = 10, I/O port = 0x168-0x16f),
5) Slackware 3.0 on a CD-ROM.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------
I used <bare.i> and <sbpcd.i> to create my boot diskett but it does not
seem
to recognize my ATAPI CD-ROM device.
Only :
- /dev/hda (ide0 --> Primary IDE master --> HDisk of 1.6 Gb)
- /dev/hdc (ide1 --> Secondary IDE master --> HDisk of 850 Mb)
are available after the boot. No /dev/hde around.

Do you have any explanation for a beginner, pliiiz ? Many thanks.

You might try "linux cdrom=/dev/hde" from the LILO: prompt.  However, it
looks like you have each hard drive as the master on a separate
interface.  Try putting them both on the same interface, one as master
and the other as slave (hda and hdb).  Then attach your ATAPI cd-rom as
the master on the second interface (hdc), instead of using the ide port
on the S/B card.  Link "ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom" and you should be in
business.

I would suggest you put both hard drives through the one EIDE Controller,
and plug your CDROM drive into the secondary IDE controller, probably jumper
your CDROM drive as master, being likely an 8x CDROM drive is a PnP device.

I would probably disable the IDE controller on the sound card, to avoid
any hardware confusion, (I may be wrong.... but it is better to minimise
possible problems).

Just use the bare kernel image (it has been a long time since I installed
Linux), not using the sbpcd, as the /dev/sbpcd is for propiety type CDROM
drives which are generally 2x and lower, which did plug into the older SB16.
As your CDROM is IDE/ATAPI complient, and if you do plug it into the secondary
controller with jumper set to master (just in case it is PnP and bios finds
multiple CDROM drives), it should be able to be found on /dev/hdc.

Well I hope I didn't confuse you, I am sorry it is all messed up, but I do
suggest you try it.... it worked for me.

Cheers

Hi,

I have almost the same system like yours. I think you have installed a
wrong image/kernel. Those above (sbpcd) is for SoundBlaster CDROM
interface, not for SoundBlaster 16  + <some>CDROM drive.

You should use idecd image. It does work for me.

Unfortunately I am new in linux-world too and still didn't try SB from
linux... Maybe some day .. :-)

BTW, some help concerning using SB from linux ?????

bye,
plamen.
