I have the following SCSI CDROM

Teac CD-532S

Anyone know where or have a Dos Driver for this particular Drive.

Thanks!;)

Will an ASPI driver + Adaptec ASPICD.SYS do the trick? It does for all of my SCSI CD-ROM drives.

In other words, if you have a Trantor T160, you'd do something like this:


In CONFIG.SYS:
DEVICE=MA160.SYS
DEVICE=ASPICD.SYS /D:MSCD0000

In AUTOEXEC.BAT:

MSCDEX /D:MSCD0000

I will give it a try.. See how it goes.....

The SCSI adapter card is more the issue. The drive itself should not matter.

The card i have is a TMC-840, at boot up, the cd-rom is identified correctly, so just a matter of getting the proper software and it should work.

Anyone have the proper software?

Google is your friend. Search for Future Domain drivers.

I perfer not to recreate the wheel if someone has a spare! ;)

I am working on it...

See attached file: Use the MCAM950.SYS driver (it works for the TMC-850, so it might work for your 840) and the FDCD.SYS driver (check the .txt files for more info).

Good luck--I hope that your old card will work with this stuff!

FD PowerSCSI (http://www.sydex.com/temp/PowerSCSI.zip)

(I'll leave the file up for a day)

(P.S. While I've got it in front of me, does anyone need the Trantor SCSIWorks images?)

Well I got everything working, I downloaded your zip, never know when I might get that type of SCSI CARD.

CONFIG.SYS:

FILES=30
BUFFERS=10
LASTDRIVE=G
DEVICE=C:\DCAM950.EXE /DE00 5
DEVICE=C:\ASPICD.SYS /D:MSCD0000

AUTOEXEC.BAT:

C:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD0000

CARD SETTINGS:
DE00h
IRQ5

CD-ROM TESTED:
Teac CD-532S 32X

The 1/2 Gig SCSI hardrive is partitioned into 4 equal parts C: to F:
G: being the letter used for the CD-ROM, last drive had to be added
to config.sys..

Thats all folks...

The ZIP's got both the MCAM950 and DCAM950 drivers in it. MCAM950 is handy if you have multiple devices on the card.

Future Domain started out by supporting CAM, then later added ASPI. IIRC, the FDCD.SYS driver is the CAM version of ASPICD.SYS.

FWIW.

I do, I do!! My originals are infected with AntiCMOS A, and I would love to restore them to their former glory.

Is there a better way of doing it than the setup I'm using?
