1.  Connecting the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM Drive

1.1 Adding the drive to a configuration with one IDE Hard Disk

Set the drive to SL(Slave mode) by setting a jumper on the rear side. Make
sure the Hard Disk is set to IDE Master mode(Check your Hard Disk's
documentation for details).

1.2 One drive connection to IDE channel

MA(Master mode) or SL(Slave mode) are both valid settings.


2.  Setting on each OS

2.1 MS-DOS

If your OS is MS-DOS (or IBM PC-DOS) , then perform the following steps :

2.1.1 Installation with setup program

Execute SETUP.EXE which is in the attached Floppy disk. You can copy the
device driver to install directory and rewrite CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT
with SETUP.EXE.

If you don't use the installation program, then perform the following steps :

2.1.2 Copy from Floppy disk

Copy the file ATAPI_CD.SYS to your Hard disk.

2.1.3 Modify CONFIG.SYS 

After Connecting the CD-ROM Drive and copying the device driver  to the Hard
Disk, add the following line to CONFIG.SYS :

       DEVICE=C:\ATAPI_CD.SYS
       LASTDRIVE=Z

Valid options for this device driver are listed below. In most cases however,
you don't need to specify any options. In case no options are specified, the 
driver will search for the CD-ROM Drive automatically. If the device driver
loads successfully but the CD-ROM Drive can't be accessed, you must specify
the LASTDRIVE line in CONFIG.SYS.

Setting device driver options :
 e.g. :
	DEVICE=C:\ATAPI_CD.SYS /S:1 /D:MSCD001

[Option]
	/S:x   ------> CD-ROM Drive ID.

This determines the setting of the drive to Master or Slave and the connection
to the Primary or Secondary IDE channel.

	x =	0: Master Drive on Primary IDE Channel
		1: Slave Drive on Primary IDE Channel
		2: Master Drive on Secondary IDE Channel
		3: Slave Drive on Secondary IDE Channel

	/D: *******    -->    Drive Device name
		e.g.:   /D:PIONEER
	If you do not specify this option, a default CD-ROM Device name is 
	used : "MSCD001".
	In case you copied the device driver to a sub-directory, specify the
	FULL PATH name in the "DEVICE=..... " line in CONFIG.SYS.

2.1.4  Modify AUTOEXEC.BAT

Add  the following line to AUTOEXEC.BAT.
 e.g. :   MSCDEX.EXE  /D:PIONEER

Make sure the  CD-ROM Device name is same as in CONFIG.SYS : "/D:PIONEER". 
(In case you didn't specify this option in CONFIG.SYS, specify : "/D:MSCD001")


2.2 MS-Windows Ver3.xx (Ver 3.1,Ver 3.11,for Workgroup)

In case the CD-ROM Drive is connected to the Primary IDE Channel and the IDE
Hard Disk is set to Master mode, the 32bitDiskAccess parameter in the Windows
SYSTEM.INI file should set to OFF.

This can be achieved in two ways : 

Double-click Control Panels, then double-click 386Enhanced and uncheck
the 32bitDiskAccess checkbox. Click OK and restart.

Experienced users can edit the SYSTEM.INI file in the  Windows directory :
  	      32bitDiskAccess=OFF


2.3 Windows NT (Upper Ver3.5)

After connecting the CD-ROM Drive to the primary IDE Channel in Slave mode,
install Windows NT. then the CD-ROM Drive will be automatically recognised.

If you are adding the CD-ROM Drive to an existing Windows NT installation,
refer to the Windows NT documentation. (The CD-ROM Drive can be installed as
ATAPI device)


2.4 OS/2 Warp (Upper Ver3.0)

After connecting the CD-ROM Drive to the primary IDE Channel in Slave mode,
install OS/2 Warp and choose "Other IDE CD-ROM" from the CD-ROM Device list.


2.5. Windows95

After connecting the CD-ROM Drive to the primary or secondary IDE channel,
and then you should refer to the section 2.1 and install the (MS-)DOS device
driver (ATAPI_CD.SYS).

If you are adding the CD-ROM Drive to an existing Windows95, the CD-ROM Drive
can be automatically recognized.



Copying & distribution of this device driver is prohibited.
