Dunno, I haven't used a lot of CDs in DOS in recent years either. I think I tried it successfully, but honestly, I just don't have a lot of stuff, just a few random old games that obviously weren't that urgent for me to get working (at the time). I should probably test some more. Of course, without sound (and whatnot), they are "sometimes" less enjoyable. Here's a snip from my setup: 123?DEVICE=C:\UTILS\XMGR.SYS /N128 DEVICEHIGH=C:\UTILS\UIDE.SYS /S127 /D:FDCD000 /H shcdx33f /Q /D?FDCD000 /~ > @echo off > set lang=EN > set PATH=%dosdir%\bin I don't see DOSDIR set here at all! :-P > lh doslfn > SHSUCDX /QQ /D3 Can't remember if that's correct. Don't know if LFNs are needed in most cases. Try disabling DOSLFN, for now. http://help.fdos.org/en/hhstndrd/base/shsucdx.htm Okay, so where's the device name? And why reserve three drives? > IF EXIST FDBOOTCD.ISO LH SHSUCDHD /Q /F:FDBOOTCD.ISO Mounting an .ISO, eh? :-) Then I guess you don't need UIDE at all. FYI, I never use this. If it works, good. Sounds messy, though. I don't know if it's getting confused here or not. But definitely I am! :-) In other words, I just use the files directly and don't try to read from .iso. Presumably it shouldn't be hard to extract the files and manually copy them over. > LH FDAPM APMDOS You should probably disable this, for now. > if "%config%"=="2" LH SHARE I don't even know how well (FD) SHARE works for us (incomplete?). > ctmouse Disable this, for now. > DEVLOAD /H /Q %dosdir%\bin\uide.sys /D:FDCD0001 /S5 > ShsuCDX /QQ /~ /D:?SHSU-CDH /D:?FDCD0001 /D:?FDCD0002 /D:?FDCD0003 Eh? You're loading SHSUCDX twice? Okay, so indeed you are trying to use three optical (CD/DVD) drives?? > shsucdx /D No idea if this is required three different times.
