I have an old proprietary Goldstar/Reveal GCD-r420b cd-rom with the interface card that I would like to get running under windows 2000, I will only occasionally use the cd-rom drive (at most) and would like to use these old units I have laying around. The HP Vectra VL5 system I am trying to upgrade had Windows 98 with this drive running OK.

Do you guys know of any Windows NT drivers for this type of cd-rom? (dont even need to be 2k) Is this cd-rom similar to anything else such as Panasonic, Sony, or Mitsumi? I know there are NT drivers for all three above.

Any ideas?

Thanx

Based on the research I did, you are out of luck, from the LG Electronics driver page,

Q. What driver should I use in Windows® NT to get my drive to work?

A. The GCD-R320B, GCD-R400B, and GCD-R420B are unsupported in Windows® NT.

All other drives (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW) are supported as a CD-ROM using the dual PCI IDE CD-ROM ATAPI 1.2 driver listed in the SCSI adapters section of NT. Add this driver and the drive should work. If the driver is already listed, unload it and then reload it again.

Please note that the writing software (for CD-RWs) and/or the Power DVD Software (for DVD-ROMs) are what allows the other functions of the drives (CD-RW & DVD-ROM).
