1Installing the CD-ROMDrive

Before you begin, turn off the system power. Follow the steps below to install the CD-ROMdrive:

1.Remove the cover from your system. Refer to your system user’s manual.

2.Adjust the Master/Slave jumpers on the back of the CD-ROMdrive as necessary. (The factory default of the slave mode normally should not be changed. Please refer to Section 4 for more information)

3.Insert the CD-ROMdrive unit into a free5.25-inchdrive bay. Secure theCD-ROMdrive to the drive bay rails with the mounting screws (included in theCD-ROMpackage). Refer to your system manual for instructions on how to install a drive.

4.Plug a free power connector inside your PC into the Power socket on the back of the CD-ROMdrive.

5.Plug a free IDE connector inside your PC into the drive’s IDE interface socket.

IDE Cable

Red Strip

NOTE: The red edge of the IDE cable corresponds to pin 1 of the IDE interface on theCD-ROMdrive.

If you have a sound card, you can also connect a 4-pinanalog audio cable to the analogaudio-outconnector of yourCD-ROMdrive and theaudio-inconnector of the sound card.

If you have a digital audio device, you can also connect a 2-pindigital audio cable to the digitalaudio-outconnector of yourCD-ROMdrive and theaudio-inconnector of your digital audio device.

6.Replace the cover and turn on the power.

2Installing the CD-ROMDrivers

The CD-ROMpackage comes with an installation utility. This utility installs the

CD-ROMdrivers needed by yourCD-ROMdrive to interact with your PC. The driver installation diskette includes the following files:

AOATAPI.SYS

INSTALL.EXE

README.TXT

READMEJ.TXT

NOTE: The INSTALL.EXE file automatically detects the system language environment.

For DOS and Windows 3.1

To install the driver in DOS or Windows 3.1:

1.Insert the installation diskette in your 3.5-inchdiskette drive and make it the active drive.

2.At the DOS prompt, type:

INSTALL

3.Follow the screen instructions to complete the installation.

The installation program creates a directory (C:\CDROM) containing the CD-ROMdrivers. It also updates your AUTOEXEC.BAT and

CONFIG.SYS files as follows:

CONFIG.SYS

DEVICE=C:\CDROM\AOATAPI.SYS /D:IDECD000

LASTDRIVE=N

AUTOEXEC.BAT

C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD000

Changing the Settings After Installation

To reconfigure the settings of the CD-ROMdriver, use a text editor (such as EDIT.COM) to modify theDEVICE= andLASTDRIVE= command lines in the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files. Then restart your computer.

Table of Contents

Changing the CONFIG.SYS File and Enabling the DMA Function

Add the following line to your CONFIG.SYS:

DEVICE = <PATH>\AOATAPI.SYS /D:<DEVICE_NAME> [/zzzz] [/P:xxx,yy]

The <DEVICE_NAME> is the name of the MSCDEX file that will be used to find the device driver. The maximum length of the<DEVICE_NAME> string is eight characters.

The option [/zzzz] in character form specifies the DMA function, the Ultra-DMA33 function or Bus Master DMA function. Please refer to the README.TXT file for more details.

For example:

DEVICE=C:\CDROM\AOATAPI.SYS /D:IDECD000 /DMA /P:1F0,14

If your system board supports the Bus Master DMA function, the option /DMA enables the Bus Master DMA function.

The option /P: specifies the I/O port address and IRQ level. The numberxxx in hexadecimal form specifies the I/O port address (such as 1F0, 170, 1E8, or 168), andyy specifies the IRQ level (such as 14, 15, 11, or 10 in decimal).

NOTE: If you are not familiar with I/O Port or IRQ level settings, do not implement/P: option.

After changing the CONFIG.SYS, reboot the system.

Refer to the README.TXT file for the latest driver installation updates.

For Windows 95 and Windows NT Environment

Windows 95 and Windows NT will automatically detect the new CD-ROMdrive and load the appropriate device driver. However, there are times when Windows can not detect theCD-ROMdrive. You will have to load the drivers manually.

To install the drivers manually:

1.Click the Control Panel Icon inMy Computer and then clickAdd New Hardware. The Add New Hardware window appears.

2.The program will automatically search for your new CD-ROMDrive and load the appropriate driver.

vii

For OS/2 Warp

Under OS/2 Warp, select the non-listedCD-ROMoption. This option supports the standard ATAPICD-ROMdrives. After selecting this option, OS/2 will autodetect theCD-ROMdrive.

3Using the CD-ROMDrive

In most cases, software applications that utilize CD-ROMdrives control the CDROM drive operations directly. However, you can control the drive manually using thefront-panelcontrols.

1.Headphone Jack

The 3.5-mmstereo headphone jack allows you to listen to audio CDs via stereo headphones.

2.Volume Control

The volume control is a rotary knob that allows you to control the sound level from the headphone jack.

3.Power-on/BusyLED

The Power-on/BusyLED indicator lights up when theCD-ROMdrive is being accessed. The LED blinks during a seek operation.

4.Play/Skip Button

The Play/Skip button allows you to play and skip tracks on an audio CD.

5.Load/Eject Button

The Load/Eject button opens the motorized CD tray for loading and removing CDs. When an audio CD is being played, pressing this button stops the playing of the CD.

6.Emergency-ejectHole

The emergency-ejecthole allows the user to open the CD tray when the system has no power. (This function is only available with 32x speed CDROM and up)

7.Disc Tray

The disc tray opens and closes for the loading and removal of CDs.

Table of Contents

4Emergency-ejectOption

The Emergency-ejectoption allows the user to manually open the CD tray during a power malfunction.

Follow these steps to manually open the disc tray:

1.Locate the tiny hole at the bottom of the disc tray. Gently poke the hole three times with a sharp needle or a clip.

2.When the disc tray opens, pull out the tray and remove the disc from the CD-ROMdrive.

If your CD-ROMdoes not have anemergency-ejecthole follow these steps:

1.Locate the bottom edge of the disc tray. Gently pry the disk tray open with a screwdriver.

2.When the disc tray opens, simply remove the disc from the CD-ROMdrive.

NOTE: Do not do this unless absolutely necessary. This procedure may damage the CD tray.

5Jumper Settings

This appendix explains the jumper settings on the drive and lists the pin configurations of each connector on the rear panel.

There is one jumper at the rear of the CD-ROMdrive. This jumper determines how yourCD-ROMdrive functions. The figure and table below show the four possible jumper settings and their functions.

Jumper Setting

Function

 

 

C

Use CSEL

 

 

M

Master

 

 

S

Slave

 

 

None

Slave

 

 

 

 

The drive comes preset with the jumper at the S pin. This means that the drive is set as a slave. In this case, your hard disk drive would be the master drive. To change the jumper setting, remove the jumper cap and insert the pin for the desired function.
