CRD-8160B not detected by Slackware


I'm afraid I'm a newbie installing (or attempting to) Slackware 9.0 on an old PI 150 MHz machine.

It USED to have 95 on it, but I overwrote that early in the install (did not run FIPS).

At any rate the CD-ROM, an old Goldstar CRD8160B was working under 95 but now that I'm at the "Source Media selection" page, Slackware's not recognizing it. I'm guessing this problem goes beyond doing a search at driverguide.com. Any ideas?? Tks!

It is a standard IDE drive, 16x, so I don't understand. You shouldn't need a driver.

When do you have problem? at install? errors?

Yes, it's during install at the "Source media selection" page. When I choose CD-ROM as the media selection, it first scans for "SCSI", then "ATAPI" CD ROM, and finally displays the following error message:

"No IDE/SCSI drive, so we will try scanning for CD-ROM drives on old proprietary interfaces such as sound blaster, preIde cdrom drives, Sony cdu-31a,Sony 535, old Mitsumi 3 IDE, old optics, etc. for this scan to work at all, will need to be using a boot disk that supports your cd rom drive. please press enter to begin this last chance scan for old obsolete hardware."

I try to manual scan as well, the CD rom is on the second IDE channel as a master. I did this because the first IDE channel has an ATA drive and i didn't want it to interfere.

Maybe I should just get a new CD Rom drive. Does anyone know of one that actually works with Slackware?

Thks,
Chris

I think any decent new cd-rom drive will do. Maybe you should think about a cd-writer, while you're at it. The diff in price is so small. Then you do backups with mondorescue

As ugob said, it sounds like it ought to be detected. Are you booting up into the Slack install routine from the CD - in other words, is the installation process launched as a result of booting from the CD, but then during the "media selection" routine the system seems to forget that that CD is there? Or are you booting from floppy? -- J.W.
