Windows 95

Windows 95 comes with a generic ATAPI CD-ROM device driver that works with your computer's CD-ROM. You do not need to install a new device driver for your CD-ROM.

Note
If you upgraded to Windows 95 from DOS or Windows 3.x, you must disable the original DOS/Windows CD-ROM device driver in order to allow the generic Windows 95 device driver to work effectively.


To enable the Windows 95 generic ATAPI CD-ROM device driver, follow these instructions:

1. Go to the MS-DOS command prompt.
2. Open the CONFIG.SYS file.
3. Find the following line:
DEVICE=C:\xxxxxx\IBMTPCD.SYS /D:TPCD 1.....
where xxxxxx is the subdirectory where you have installed the CD-ROM device driver. If you cannot find the line, quit the file and go to step 5.
4. Comment out the line, changing it as follows:
REM DEVICE=C:\xxxxxx\IBMTPCD.SYS /D:TPCD 1.......
If the line is already commented out, quit the file and go to the next step.
5. Open the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
6. Find the following line:
C:\xxxxxx\MSCDEX.EXE /D:TPCD 1.....
where xxxxxx is the subdirectory where you have installed the CD-ROM device driver. If you cannot find the line, quit the file and go to step 8.
7. Comment out the line, changing it as follows:
REM C:\xxxxxx\MSCDEX.EXE /D:TPCD 1......
If the line is already commented out, quit the file and go to the next step.
8. Exit the MS-DOS command prompt; then restart your system.
You have now completed the modifications required for the CD-ROM device driver.

Windows NT

Windows NT comes with a generic ATAPI CD-ROM device driver that works with your computer's CD-ROM. The generic Windows NT CD-ROM device driver is automatically installed during Windows NT setup. When you install this CD-ROM device after Windows NT is already installed, add an ATAPI CD-ROM device driver according to the following instructions:

5. Windows NT prompts you to restart your system. Click on Yes.

If you are installing under Microsoft Windows NT 3.51:

1. Boot the system and log on with an administrator account.
2. From the Program Manager, double-click on Windows NT Setup in Main.
3. Select Options, and then Add/Remove SCSI Adapters in the pull-down menu. The SCSI Adapter Setup panel appears.

3. Type A:UINSTALL Then press Enter.
4 . Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
5. After the installation is complete, remove the diskette from the diskette drive and restart your system.

You have now completed the installation of the CD-ROM device driver for DOS.

Software Parameters in the CONFIG.SYS File

When the CD-ROM device driver is installed in your computer, UINSTALL automatically modifies the CONFIG.SYS file. The following are the parameters for the CD-ROM device driver:
DEVICE=[drive:][path]IBMTPCD.SYS [/C]

IBMTPCD.SYS is the CD-ROM device driver. Make sure this line is inserted after the EMM386 statement.

[/C] Sets the cache size in the XMS memory. When this parameter is set, the cache size in the XMS memory is 512 sectors. When it is not set, the default is 0.
Note: Do not specify the [/R] parameter for this option.

[drive:][path]MSCDEX.EXE /D:TPCD 1
[/M:n][/E][/V][/L:x]

The Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions program (MSCDEX.EXE), for MS-DOS Version 3.11 or later, works with the IBMTPCD.SYS device driver to allow your computer to access the CD-ROM drive, where options can be: /D Specifies the name of the CD-ROM drive, TPCD001.
[/M:n] Specifies the number of sector buffers to store the most recent disc data temporarily. The default is n=4.
[/E] Specifies that the computer will use expanded memory, if available.
[/V] Displays on the computer screen a summary of RAM allocation and expanded memory usage at power-on.
/L:x] Specifies the drive letter (represented here by x) for the CD-ROM drive. Do not assign a drive letter already used by another drive; otherwise, the computer cannot access the CD-ROM drive.

Software Parameters in the AUTOEXEC.BAT File
The following describes about the SMARTDRV parameter in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file:

SMARTDRV
If you are using DOS SMARTDRV caches and are planning to use a photo CD or multiple session discs, add the /U parameter to the SMARTDRV line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. This is because photo CDs or multiple session discs are not compatible with the SMARTDRV caches.

If you are planning to play CD-i movies, do not cache the CD-ROM drive with SMARTDRV Version 5.0 or 5.1, which is supplied with PC DOS Version 7.0.
