(Device name MSCDOO1 NO Drivers found Aborting Op

Hi helping a mate out. I am trying to load Win98.
When the 98 flopy runs I get the mesage (Device name :MSCDOO1 NO Drivers Found Aborting Operation?)
Win98 is been loaded onto a newly formated HDFat32.
I have started off by using CD suport and CD is the first boot.

Some CD drives don't use the generic Windows cd driver. Check whether your mate's computer has one of those.

That should have been the generic Microsoft driver MSCDEX.EXE. This was especially true of some older CD drives. I had a Mitsumi drive in an old 1995 computer that had to have its own driver.

Never had this problem before the CD isnt that old.
when the diagnostic tools are loaded sucsesfully it loads them to D.
by sucsesfully it still hasnt found the CDROM drivers.
I will put a new CD Player in and see what happens.

Hi I have found the driver from .com for the CD drive.
At what point or how do I load the driver onto PC, its on a flopy disk,

Drive D is a ram drive , your CD would be listed a E drive , have a look on the floppy to see if MSCDEX.EXE is on it .


  Ashrich 23:43 27 Nov 06

Copy it to your boot floppy .

Oh , and A: should be the first boot device otherwise it won't be able to load the CD driver .

The file is over 2mb with all info on it however I tried using two floppies but the PC didn’t recognise the floppies.
I bought ten old CDs looks like they may be useless if I cant get drivers onto the HD.

Should read CD Drives, I cant see the MSCDEX.EXE file in the DIR so what now.
