Problem Getting W2K to See HP CD Writer

I am having problems installing my hp cd16 IDE writer under W2K.

My disk config is

Mast Boot drive
Slave CD-ROM

Mast Vid drive (Maxtor)
Slave cd writer

Rest is PII 350MHz, 392MB mem, Lynx card, etc.

On boot the BIOS recognizes and IDs the CD writer. The Drive Image Pro boot disks see the drive. W2K is the only software that does not recognize the drive.

You need to download the latest drivers for the cd writer from the HP web.
The you have to manually add hardware from control panel settings and add and remove hardware.
When it looks for the drivers click have disk and point it to the path where the drivers are.

good luck

It Works.
Well, I finally got W2K to detect the drive. The solution was that in control panel channel 1 on the secondary IDE was set to 'NONE.'

I do not know where I went wrong with that setting. I know that on two occassions I did enable that critter, but for some reason it must not have been set correctly. Since I crashed the system twice during this exercise, it must have operator errors.

Good news is that it now works, so I can put the skins back on.

Thanks again,
Nathan Gifford
