My WIN NT 4.0 can not read my cd.
It does show a cd drive on my computer and right click on cd > properties> volume information does work, but I can not explore the CD , it says

"F:\ is inaccessible,
The parameter is incorrect"

I tried putting LH c:\cdrom\MSCDEX.exe /D:Nec_ide.sys
in autoexec.bat and
(I have mscdex and nec_ide.sys in c:\cdrom)
device=c:\cdrom\Nec_ide.sys in config sys and reboot the system.

But doesn't work. I guess autoexec and config sys are not case sensitive.

Please help.

autoexec.bat and config.sys are not used by the NT OS, they are only used by the DOS VM for backward compatibility and I believe that the autoexec.nt and config.nt are the files used for that. If the OS recognizes the drive (it is shown in explorer), and cannot access it, it is probably bad. I would try the NEC site for new drivers first (if that is the manufacturer), but if that doesn't work, try another CD drive.
