Hi, all. This is my first attempt at posting to this group, so please
forgive any protocol errors or just plain stupid questions. Here's the
problem: (Actually, there are multiple problems, but I'll start with the
most pressing one for now) I recently installed a new CD-ROM drive in my
PB 486sx-33. It is an NEC 3x (badged as a Creative Labs). I have
already succesfully run Megarace on it, as well as played audio CDs with
no problems. A couple days ago I purchased Return to Zork, which comes
packaged with the entire Zork anthology on a separate disk. I copied
the anthology onto my hard drive, and those games work fine. The only
snag I encountered was an error message when I tried to install a demo
from the disk - something like, VERIFY - Bad file somethingorother. I
ignored it and went on to insert the second disk, the one containing
RTZ. This time, I typed install, and the machine froze. Upon further
investigation, I realized that I couldn't even get a directory listing
of the RTZ disk. I thought I got a couple bad CDs, so I returned them.
The replacements I got do the EXACT SAME THING - on both disks!
I apologize for the lengthy description, but I don't want to leave
anything out that might give someone a clue as to what the heck my
problem is. Can anybody tell me what the problem might be? BTW, I may
have an IRQ conflict in my system somewhere - could that have anything
to do with it?
Thanks ahead of time to anyone patient enough to read this and reply -
my brain is about to explode!
