Hi there! I have a problem concerning my CD-ROM under Linux, the drive is
a Funai 2-speed and it uses its own controller card.
Here are the specs;
on it reads; NSA Model; NSCD-2X-P1
Nissei Sangyo America Ltd.
100 Lowder Brook Drive
On the controller card I found these marks;
Copyright Creative Technology
[end of specs]
Here's what happens when I boot DOS;
config.sys: E252X/E282X CD-ROM Device driver Ver1.07
(c) FUNAI ELECTRIC CO LTD 1993-1995
i/o port: 0250 i/o mode: P10
ID: E2520 0.01
[end of dos config.sys]
When I try to boot Linux with the bootparameter hdc=cdrom
INIT echoes; ide1: secondary interface on irq 15
[end of INIT echo]
but the dmesg gives me this;
hdc: no response (status = 0xff)
hdc: ATAPI cdrom
[end of dmesg echo]
My system is a 486/66 20Mram w/ Linux -slackware 3.1? -kernel 2.0.21
I have tried with the soundblaster and other drivers but they don't seem
to notice any drive at all...
Um, I HAVE read the faq's and HOWTO's ;)
This is what I know of my drive and what it does, I'm kindo' stuck here,
I don't like booting up DOS every time I need the drive ;)
Could someone PLEASE help me????
I could ofcourse BUY a new drive that is a 'real' IDE-drive but I
don't think that's the Linux way of doing it !! ;)
