ide cd rom

Hi guys,
Hope you had a great xmas and are looking forward to New years eve! I have a squirrel scsi cd rom drive which will play music cd's and data cd's with no probs.However I also have a ide cd rom connected by idefix'97. I use this to play music via groovy player. The drive refuses to read any data cd's.Groovy player will even tell me that I have a data cd inserted if I insert a data cd by mistake.It has got to be obvious I suppose but if it is I dont know what I'm missing.Any help would be appreciated
Dave

Does it show up in the Find device util that comes with idefix - under the scsi.device, or atapi.device. If it finds in there it willusually setup the device dos driver for you. otherwise you will have to set up the device properties manually.
Copy the cd0: device in dosdrivers and rename to cd1:, use information to change the device from squirrelscsi.device to atpai.device or scsi.device depending on which device it showed up in on the scan
i think that should do it - they'll be others with better answers soon
