Sanyo CD ROM Problem

Sanyo CD ROM Problem

Post by Brian Fowl » Sun, 23 Jul 1995 04:00:00

I have a Media Magic ISP-16 soundcard and a Sanyo CD ROM which is attached to
the soundcard. My problem is that I can't get Linux to recognize that the CD
ROM is even there. Sound works without a problem when I recompiled the kernel,
but the CD ROM is still no where to be found.

I have tried everything I can think of, but to no avail. Is there a driver I
am missing? If so, where can I find it? If I am setting the config settings
for the kernel wrong some help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,


Victoria, B.C.


1. Sanyo CD-ROM problems

Hi, all.  I'm having some problems getting linux to recognize my Sanyo
H94A CD-ROM.  I have a sounblaster 16, which it's hooked up to.  I'm
using a recent version of slackware bootdisk, asjcd.

When I boot up, it says something like: can't find device on 0x340
(the port default).  Since I'm running the CD-ROM from the
soundblaster, I have the default port set up to be 0x220 (according to
my autoexec.bat file).  So when I try to set up, I say something like:
ramdisk sjcd=0x220
and then the system says something like: can't find device on 0x220.
My CD works fine from DOS.

and I'm stumped.  Any idea at all for what I could do or try?

many thanks for any help!
