                1. DOS & Win 3.xx         2. Win 95

                3. Windows NT             4. Solaris

                5. OS/2                   6. Linux

 1. Installation under the DOS & Win 3.xx

 1)  Turn off your PC and connect the CD-ROM DRIVE to the PC.

     1.1 Adding the CD-ROM drive to a configuration with one IDE Hard Disk
         Set LG CD-ROM drive to SL(Slave mode) by setting a jumper
         on the middle side. The Hard Disk is set to IDE Master mode.

     1.2 CD-ROM only connection to IDE card or Secondary IDE Port on 
	 the PC Motherboard.
         Set the CD-ROM drive to MA (Master mode).
       	 (refer to the Owner's manual)

 2)  Turn the PC on.
 3)  Insert INSTALL DISK to the 3.5-inch driver.
 4)  Type 'install' on the 3.5-INCH DRIVER.
 5)  Check the directory to install. (DEFUALT C:\CDROM)
 6)  After completion of the installation, hit Enter.
 7)  Reboot the PC.
 8)  If the device driver installs successfully but the CD-ROM DRIVE 
	can't be accessed, you check the following




        C:\CDROM\MSCDEX /D:MSCD000

 9)  If the CD-ROM DRIVE can't be accessed continuously in MS-DOS or PC-DOS,
     	recheck the connection of P.C and CD-ROM.
 10) If the CD-ROM DRIVE can't be accessed continuously in Win3.xx,
     	recheck the following:

    10-1)  The 32BITDISKACCESS and VIRTUALHDIRQ parameter in the
           Windows SYSTEM.INI file should be set to OFF.

           Using edit.exe, users can edit the SYSTEM.INI file in
           the Windows directory :

           SYSTEM.INI FILE :


       	   (refer to the Owner's manual  )


 2.  Installation under the  Win 95

 1)  Turn off your PC and Connect CD-ROM DRIVE to the PC.

     1.1 Adding the CD-ROM drive to a configuration with one IDE Hard Disk
         Set LG CD-ROM drive to SL (Slave mode) by setting a jumper
         on the middle side. The Hard Disk is set to IDE Master mode.

     1.2 CD-ROM only connection to IDE card or Secondary IDE Port on 
	 the PC Motherboard.
         Set CD-ROM drive to MA (Master mode).

 2)  Turn the PC on.

 3)  Under WIN 95, the LG CD-ROM DRIVE is automatically found
     by the PnP FUNCTION because LG CD-ROM DRIVE works on 
     Win95's DIVEICE DRIVER under WIN95,

 4)  If you want to use under the COMMAND PROMPT MODE of WIN95,
     the LG CD-ROM DRIVE should be installed from the INSTALL DISK.
     => Insert the install disk into the floppy drive and type 'INSTALL'.
     => (refer to the Owner's manual  )

 9)  If the CD-ROM DRIVE can't use the auto-play fuction
     for Win95 CD or an audio CD, check the following:

     9-1) If LG CD-ROM DRIVE isn't listed in device manager, but the
          LG CD-ROM works on DOS device driver or system was infected
          by some virus.
          First check the virus.
