I have a Sound Blaster 16 IDE (CT2290) and I'm trying to get the connected CD-ROM drive to be recognized properly in Windows 98 SE.
It works fine in MS-DOS with the Oak driver + MSCDEX. No problems there, I can read data and audio.
But in Windows, while the drive does appear and is assigned a drive letter, every single disc appears as an audio CD. Even data discs without any CDDA at all. They just show up with a single "track01.cda" file! Attempting to navigate to the CD drive on the command line also produces this.
It didn't work at all before I installed the SB IDE drivers available from this site. The Device Manager recognizes there's a drive and even sees the device's correct name. So there's that.
I'm absolutely baffled. What else should I try?
