	PCCARD CABLE under Win98, Win NT4, Win 2000

The system resources are divided between all installed components, within the 
supported operating systems. A maximum of 16 interrupts (IRQ 0-15) can be 
addressed, thus problems may arise if/when new components are installed. In 
order to properly install your PORT DVD drive, use the Driver Choice program 
located on the installation diskette.

1. 	How to use the DricerChoice.exe program for driver debugging

Driver Choice allows you to install a variety of device drivers with different 
architecture. When you choose one of the given device drivers on the diskette, 
it will be activated so that the chosen PORT-device driver can be installed 
as described in the manual. Please proceed as described below.

1.1	Installation routine

  1. Make a copy of your installation disk.
  2. Please deactivate the write protection of the disk.. 
  3. Remove the PC Card (Cable PCMCIA) if it is still in the 				         PCMCIA slot of your machine. Remember to first click on the PC Card 
     symbol in the status bar and to remove the PC Card only after you 
     have clicked on "remove".
  4. Start the program 'DriveChoice.exe' on the driver disk.
  5. Read through the disclaimer carefuly before you proceed.
  6. Choose one of the proposed drivers according to the criteria described in 
     the section 1.2 below. Then click on the "start"-button.
  7. If you get a message that the update is complete but are not asked if you 
     would like to erase any of the old files, please continue with step 12.
  8. If you get a message that the update of the drivers is complete together 
     with a message asking you to allow the deletion of old files, please 
     click the "Yes" button. 
  9. Check the device driver you want to delete in the dialog box then click on 
     the "next" button.
 10. In Windows, all the old files that are going to be deleted are displayed. 
     Click on "next" after viewing/verifying the files.
 11. Click "finish" to reboot your system.
 12. Now you can install your device once again. Please take care that the driver           installation is performed from your floppy disk drive with the modified disk. 

1.2 	Criteria for choosing a driver when using the 'DriverChoice.exe' program. 

To get an overview of the different drivers please check the following table.

1.2.1	High Speed Driver

This driver allows for the highest transfer speed and best DVD playback. 
This driver requires a free IRQ to operate. If you meet one of the following 
errors while running your drive with this default driver please use the 
compatibility driver:

- Reading errors of the device 
- Errors on device recognition (due to a occupied IRQ) 

1.2.2	Compatibility Driver

This driver differs from the High Speed Driver mainly by the 
fact that it does not occupy an IRQ. Choose this driver if any of the above 
defined errors occurs with the High Speed Driver.

If errors still occur with this driver while running your device please use 
the Windows Standard Driver. 

1.2.3	Windows Standard Driver 

This driver requires a free IRQ to operate. Use this driver if you are 
experiencing problems with the High Speed or Compatibility Driver.
