Does a Panasonic CR-563-B CD-ROM drive act like a CR-562?

Does a Panasonic CR-563-B CD-ROM drive act like a CR-562?

Post by Doug Bra » Thu, 30 Jun 1994 11:04:17



I can't get the Fall '93 Yggdrasil Linux CD-ROM to boot up
on my PC.  I have a 586 box with a Panasonic CR-563-B drive
connected to a sound-less interface card ("Golden" brand).
The drive works find under DOS, but Linux does not seem to be
aware of its existance.  I have the interrupt disconnected
(the jumper on the card completely removed), but as far as I
know, the Linux driver doesn't use the interrupt.  The base address
is 310H.

Should this setup work?  Is the 563 drive really different than the 562?
Can I get a updated boot disk or something what will work with this drive?

Thanks,

Doug Braun

        I've never heard of a CR-563B, but the CR-562B and CR-563B are
essentially the same drive.  Make sure that the drive is configured as
unit 0.  There should be a jumper on the back for this purpose.

Try using address 300h, this should solve the problem. My Summer '94 version
also refuses to boot on address 310h, switching to address 300h worked for me.

1. Panasonic CR-563, CR-562 and IBM external CR-563 compatible.

Hi,

I have a couple of questions concerning CD-ROM drives.

a) What is the difference between a Panasonic CR-562 and a  Panasonic CR-563 ?

b) Can I use the IBM external (Panasonic CR-563 compatible) as an internal
   CDROM drive, and can I then connect it to the Panasonic Soundblaster
   Interface with a 40-pin cable.
   And can I connect the IBM drive via an internal cable to the audio card
   for the audio facilities. (4-pin cable)?
   Does the SBPCD driver work with this IBM 'internal drive', connected to
   the sound blaster, or does it only work with his own interface and so as
   an external drive?
   Are the connectors of this drive so that it can be used as internal drive,
   I mean the power, data and audio connectors?

c) Is there someone who has a working INSTANT TECH CDROM drive under linux
   (double speed)? It is named INSTANT TECH CDAT300I, and has its own interface
   board, and could work with a SONY compatible interface. It has a 34-pins
   connector. The interface card is named something like 'IAT-SY02'.
   Is there someone who has a driver for this CDROM player, for under Linux?
   Or is there someone who can give me some hints?
   The device driver for under dos is named CDAT300I.SYS. The firm is GSL.
   Could I use the sony interface on the sound blaster card?
   Any help is appreciated
