Hey guys, thanks in advance to those of you with the patience to deal with this!

So I’m trying to get my cdrom working in dos under a different drive letter, as I have two IDE hard drives taking up C and D respectively. So I followed some guides from Phil’s computer lab, wonderful contributions but I’m afraid I probably mucked something up and I am asking for assistance to fix.

I’ve uploaded some images of what I’ve done to the autoexc and config files to imgur; sorry for the potato quality. But I did follow his guide for the sb16 drivers in dos, so I got something right?

Wrong forum. As per the pinned topic in this forum: "This forum is for running old Windows games on NEW (supported) versions of Windows" Ask old hardware and driver/configuration questions in Marvin, the Paranoid Android

Try: DEVICE=C:\DOS\VIDECDD.SYS /D:OPTICAL in config and
C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:OPTICAL /L:E in autoexec.bat to assign the cdrom as E:
or C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:OPTICAL /L:F to assign as F
