     DELAYS IN BOOTING WITH THE HITACHI DOS DRIVER.

     Users may notice a long delay in booting with our DOS driver.  The
     reason for this is that the default for our DOS driver is to look for
     all CD/DVD-ROM drives that are attached to every possible place in the
     system.

     Because ATAPI drives can be connected to Primary, Secondary, Tertiary
     or Quaternary ports and can be connected as Master or Slave on any of
     those, the driver searches 8 places to find up to 8 CD-ROM drives.

     By default, even after the first drive is found, the driver
     will continue searching to see if there is more than one drive
     connected.  If there is only 1 drive in the system, much of
     the boot up time delay can be reduced by putting /N:1 on the DEVICE=
     line of the CONFIG.SYS file.  The number after the /N: tells the
     driver to stop searching after that number of drives has been found.
     So, if 2 drives are connected, use /N:2 instead of /N:1.

     The boot up time delay can further be reduced by telling the device
     driver where to begin its search.  The default search begins with
     the Primary Master and continues in the order shown below.  In
     nearly all systems, the hard drive is connected to Primary Master,
     so starting the search at the Primary Slave would still find any
     drive.  If you know that the drive is connected to the
     Secondary port, you can save time by skipping the Primary Master
     and Primary Slave.

     The /T: parameter controls the starting location as follows:

     /T:0    Starts with Primary Master
     /T:1    Starts with Primary Slave
     /T:2    Starts with Secondary Master
     /T:3    Starts with Secondary Slave
     /T:4    Starts with Tertiary Master
     /T:5    Starts with Tertiary Slave
     /T:6    Starts with Quaternary Master
     /T:7    Starts with Quaternary Slave

     The search continues from this starting point until the end of this
     list or until the number of drives as specified in the "n" of the /N:n
     switch have been found.

     If a user does not know how his drive is connected, he or she can add
     the /V switch to the DEVICE= line.  This will display the locations searched
     and will show the name and model number of the drive on the line for
     the location where the drive is connected.

     The driver can be downloaded from our BBS at (619) 661-0245.
     The file name is HITDVD.EXE (self-extracting).
     This file contains the HIT-DVD.SYS driver, the CDSETUP.EXE installation
     utility and a README.DOC file.

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
