NEC 4spin/scsi2 CD-ROM with Indy?

Post by Istvan Berna » Fri, 05 May 1995 04:00:00

can anybody tell me, if it is possible to use my existing NEC MultiSpin
4xPro SCSI-II cdrom together with my new Indy?
I've tried everything, but it tells me constantly "Unknown CDROM Drive".

The same NEC works perfectly with Linux.

Thanks in advance!

1. Indy and NEC CD-ROM


I have an Indy R4600 workstation running IRIX 5.3. I would like to connect a  NEC Multispin 8Xe model CDR-3460A external
SCSI CD-ROM to it. The machine did find it when I booted and I can even boot the system from the CD and go to the miniroot but
from the GUI I can not access or mount the CD under / says "UNKNOWN CD-ROM" when I click on the CD icon.
Is there some place where I must define it or is it really incompatible??

reply to my e-mail please

thanks for your help!
