Smile YIPPEE! I can see my CD drives...here`s how

For all those having trouble with CD drives not showing up in WinUAE,
try this it worked for me and I can now access my CD drives again....

First of all: Install the latest ASPI-drivers for windows.
You can download the latest version at:
http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/sup...x.html?sess=no

Choose you System (eg. Windows98).
Scroll down up to "SCSI Software" -> klick at "ASPI-Driver for ... version v4.7x"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After a restart of you system:

1. start WinUAE
2. in the first preferences window go to "Misc" and check "Create log file" and cklick "OK"
3. when the AMIGA has booted kick the emulator off again (Strg or Ctrl and F11)
4. open a text-editor like the Windows-Editor
5. open the file "winuaelog.txt" in the WinUAE-directory
6. saerch for the line like this:

WinUAE 0.8.22, Release 2
(c) 1995-2001 Bernd Schmidt - Core UAE concept and implementation.
(c) 1998-2002 Toni Wilen - Win32 port, core code updates.
(c) 1996-2001 Brian King - Win32 port, Picasso96 RTG, and GUI.
(c) 1996-1999 Mathias Ortmann - Win32 port and bsdsocket support.
(c) 2000-2001 Bernd Meyer - JIT engine.
(c) 2000-2001 Bernd Roesch - MIDI input, many fixes.

...
support_scsi = 1 support_ioctl = 2
unit 0: CD inserted
unit 1: Drive empty
LITE-ON LTR-12101B LS3G = uaescsi.device:200
IDE DVD-ROM 16X 2.21 = uaescsi.device:201
...

Like you may see I have 2 drives in my computer, a CD-burner and a DVD-drive.
At the end of each line you finde the important entrys:
your device and the depending number.
Note them down.

7. start the WinUAE again witout the checked "Create log file"
8. at the AMIGA-side edit the file(s) "CDx" in the DevsOSDrivers like this:

##########################################
#####################
/* $VER: CD0 2.40 (14.12.97)
*
* CD-ROM filesystem mount entry
*/

Device = uaescsi.device
Unit = 200
FileSystem = L:AmiCDFS
Flags = 0
BlocksPerTrack = 32
BlockSize = 2048
Reserved = 0
LowCyl = 0
HighCyl = 11000
Surfaces = 1
Buffers = 64
BufMemType = 1
Mask = 0x7fffffff
GlobVec = -1
Priority = 10
DosType = 0x43444653
StackSize = 600
Mount = 1

Control = "LC BL=8 FB=32 DC=3 OLDMODE"

/* Control field template:
*
* LC=LOWERCASE/S,CS=CASESENSE/S,
* HF=HFSFIRST/S,LN=LONGNAMES/S,TD=TRACKDISK/S,
* BL=BUFFERLINES/K/N,FB=FILEBUFFERS/K/N,
* DC=DISKCHANGE/K/N,MT=MOTORTIME/K/N,
* SD=STARTDELAY/K/N,TDC=TDCHANGE/S,
* TOSHIBA/S,OLDMODE/S
*/

###############################################################

Like you can see I'm using the free(!) AmiCDFS. I couldn`t get any others to work.

In the lines Device and unit you MUST insert the values, you have noticed before.
IMPORTANT: the "OLDMODE" in the Control-line.

Save this as "CD0" to your DEVSOSDrivers. If you want to use more than one CD-Rom, create "CD1", "CD2" ... in DevsOSDrivers with the depending unitnumbers you all find in the "winuaelog.txt".
