Installing the NEW Creative Labs CD-ROM Driver in OS/2 2.1 and above
for CRCCD2.ADD Version 2.01
You should replace any earlier version with this new driver.
This driver will now support the following drives.
Panasonic CR 52x
Panasonic CR 563
Creative CD 200
1. INSTALLING CRCCD2.ADD to an existing OS/2 system
1.1. Check that you have the following lines in your CONFIG.SYS. If
these lines are missing, add them to your CONFIG.SYS and make
sure that they are located in your OS/2 directory. If these
files are not in your OS/2 directory then you must follow the
Selective Install procedure detailed in your OS/2 manual, you
must check the CD-ROM Drive box and select OTHER for the type of
CD-ROM Drive attached to your system.
BASEDEV=CRCCD2.ADD /P:XXX (Where 'XXX' is the Address of the SB card)
IFS=C:\OS2\CDFS.IFS (The "/T:2" should be added to the
DEVICE=C:\OS2\OS2CDROM.DMD CRCCD2.ADD line if the customer
DEVICE=C:\OS2\MDOS\VCDROM.SYS is using the 1810 interface!)
*NOTE: A. These lines should be kept together in the CONFIG.SYS and
they MUST be in the order shown above!
B. Make sure that you do NOT have any duplicates of these lines
in your CONFIG.SYS or you will get an error every time OS/2
1.2. Copy the CRCCD2.ADD file to the C:\OS2 directory (for Warp 3.0,
copy to the C:\OS2\BOOT directory). In some cases this file
may need to be located in the root directory of the C: drive.
If you have CRCCD2.ADD in the OS/2 directory and OS/2 still
will not recognize your CD-ROM Drive then copy the file to the
root directory. This should solve the problem.
2. INSTALLING OS/2 2.1 and above (including Warp 3.0) from CD-ROM using
2.1. Make backup copies of the two disks that come with the OS/2 2.1
CD-ROM. Store the original disks in a safe place in case they
are needed in the future.
2.2. Copy the CRCCD2.ADD file to the new disk labeled "Diskette 1".
2.3. Next, add the following line to the file CONFIG.SYS found on the
new disk labeled "Diskette 1". This line should come right before
the line "IFS=C:\OS2\CDFS.IFS /Q".
BASEDEV=CRCCD2.ADD /P:xxx (Where 'xxx' is the I/O
Address of the SB card)
2.4. Reboot the system with the new disk labeled "Installation
Diskette" and follow the installation process accordingly.
2.5. If you are installing for Warp 3.0, please skip this and go directly
to 2.6. After the installation is completed and your system has
rebooted, you must copy the files CDFS.IFS and OS2CDROM.DMD from the
OS/2 installation disk labeled "Diskette 1" into the OS2 directory
on your hard drive, then add the following two lines to your
CONFIG.SYS file that is located on the C: drive. So that you will
be able to access the CD-ROM drive after the installation process
2.6. Remember to reboot the system.
DEFINITION OF SWITCHES :
/p:xxx - SB cards base address.
/m:xxx - MKE compatible cards CDRom base address.
/t:x - Switch for standalone cards.
if x=1 then it is a Sound card. (Default).
if x=2 then it is a standalone card.
/d:x - Double Speed switch.
/n:x - Single Speed switch.
if x=0 to x=3 implies the drive number.
ix x=a implies that all drives are to be made double or single
speed. /d:a is default.
/ns - No scan. Implies that only one drive present with ID=0
and will not scan for other drives. Scaning for all drives is
