|Summary||0000006: Unable to detect ODE on a 386 DX40|
|Description||I am using a 386 DX40 with MSDOS.|
I have hooked up the ODE alone to the IDE controller.
I have tried over 26 different CD-ROM drivers and none detect it.
I have tried a FreeDOS boot disk and it does not detect it.
I have tried the HDAT2 utility and it does not detect it.
I tested booting up to the SB16 CD-ROM controller and I cannot detect it.
I have tested on 3 different IDE controllers with none of them detecting it.
Connecting to the ODE over serial shows it is powered on and working, I have a SDCARD in the slot and I can DIR and view the ISO file.
I can hook up a IDE CD-ROM drive and the IDE controllers detect and install drivers for it.
I can hook up a IDE to SDCARD adapter and the IDE controller detects it and uses it as a normal HD.
|Additional Information||I have been looking for a IDE to SD CD-ROM emulator for years that can be used on a retro machine and this is the first I have seen.|
Would love to help get this working for old PC DOS computers.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I have tested on a 486 computer with the same results.
I tested the FreeDOS drivers UIDE.SYS and UDVD.SYS and neither can see the ODE.
If it carries weight to know others are waiting for a solution, I have the same issues.
My experience is strictly with a 486 based machine (Soyo 4SAW2) and MS-DOS 6.22. This board is a later 486 with an integrated IDE controller however it fails to detect the device. I have tried four different ISA based IDE controllers all which discover traditional CD-ROM drives correctly (at port 1f0h) but not this device. I also attempted detection with a Creative Sound Blaster AWE32 (CT3200) without success.
I should note that a later Asus P5A motherboard (Super Socket 7) detected the device correctly with its integrated controller.
||He is currently working on this, keeping my fingers crossed.|
Are you sure of this? The issue status is still marked as "new" at this time. Do you have an additional dialog with the developer?
||He has just barely setup a 386 computer and has been able to reproduce the issue and is now investigating.|
Just giving an update,
Looks like he has discovered the cause and is now working on the fix.
||Excellent, this will be an important update for retro PC enthusiasts :) I'd like to recommend this device on Vogons should it work well :) Keep us updated!|
