I was wondering if anyone could help me locate a driver for this Parallel CD-Rom Drive i picked up. Is has an Ess1869f Sound card built in and i would like to track down the drivers for the sound part of the drive. I have the original floppy disks but they won't read for shit. I have downloaded the CD-Rom driver and it installed and worked fine. Just need the soundcard setup.

I've identified that the setup file is named bpsd203.exe but i can't track down a downloadable copy.

Does anyone have this drive?

I have one of these. I'll check what I have as far as software goes later on today.

Huh.. Never seen that driver pack before.
Those are beta drivers for the older models.
2.04 and 2.05 beta CDROM drivers and 1.02 Sound drivers.

Here is the driver pack I downloaded from somewhere a couple years ago which incidentally is the specific one that the OP asked about:

I might have the disks from the 181200 as I think I also have a boxed version...

Edit: I do... and here are images of the original disks which of course are older than the one above.
They are in compressed Winimage format.

On a side note, I have multiple drives I use to read old disks. Sometimes they will work fine in one drive but not in other drives.
