    I'm having a problem with my system which is preventing Windows from writing my CDR/W. For some reason I am stuck using MS-DOS compatability mode file system on my C and D drives. What Win95 says in the the device manager for my primary IDE controller is:

    This Device is not present, not working properly, or does
    not have all the drivers installed. See your hardware documentation. (Code 10.)

    I have no problem with the system under Linux and have not been able to find any problem with the disks or the controller using various drive troubleshooting programs. Is there anyway to convince Windows to get out of compatability mode?

    I'm running Win 95 OSR2, on a Compaq Presario 4824
    Pentium 2, 233MHz
    160MB RAM
    2 Hard drives on my primary controller

    Hard Drive 1 . . . . . . . . Type 1 (4293.6 Megabyte)
    Cylinders . . . . . . . . 522
    Heads . . . . . . . . . . 255
    Sectors per Track . . . . 63

    Hard Drive 2 . . . . . . . . Type 2 (6502.8 Megabyte)
    Cylinders . . . . . . . . 840
    Heads . . . . . . . . . . 240
    Sectors per Track . . . . 63

    Drive 1 is FAT32
    Drive 2 is partitioned into 4G FAT32 and the remainder for Linux

    I have a CDROM and a CDR/W on my secondary controller

    Thanks.
