Panasonic/Matshita CR-572 IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM

Panasonic/Matshita CR-572 IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM

Post by bonni mierzejews » Thu, 30 May 1996 04:00:00

My PC has a Panasonic/Matshita CR-572 IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM.  When I boot Linux
(Slackware - I customized the kernel with sbpcd.c), it finds the CD-ROM,
but then it says:

Check region: 170 is not free.

Then it goes ahead and mounts the CD-ROM.

0x170 (IRQ 15) *is* the CD-ROM's address.  I even called the manufacturer
to confirm it.  That's also where my DOS partition finds it.

Does anybody know what's going on here?  How do I fix this?

1. Matshita CR-572 CDROM not recognized by Slackware Install boot disks


I cannot get the boot disks for slackware 3.0 to recognise the Matshita CR-572
CDROM drive that came with my packard bell computer. The drive is conencted to
teh secondary IDE drive and I was of the opinion that it is ATAPI compliant.
Neither the ATAPI boot disk nor the sppcd boot disks seem to recognize it.

I would greatly appreciate the help of someonw taht has got this CDROM
