1. There are many setting in sound card IDE port. Which setting will recommend for CD-ROM. Where can I get support for my BTC CD-ROM Drive ?
Most of new CD-ROM driver (maybe 8X later) support four type of setting.
   
2. My sound card can not work properly under windows 95.
It is strongly recommend you unplug sound card when you install windows 95. Because windows 95 will auto search new hardware during installation, and default driver will be used. Usually the default driver is older then our driver and maybe not work properly. In this condition, remove the old driver and install again. Please run "RM931DRV.EXE" to remove the old driver.
Windows 95 will auto detect sound card after you remove driver and restart system. If windows 95 not detect sound card, It maybe you install a driver for other sound card and it's not compatible. Please remove it.
** The "RM931931DRV.EXE" is included in our diskette labeled "WIN95 DRIVER V4.03.00.20.31" or download from our web site in "software library".
   
3. How can I enable 185X sound card IDE port?
Most of our 185X sound card IDE default setting is disabled. To enable IDE port : Run "EEPR1868 IRQ15" or "EEPR1868 IRQ12" To disable IDE port :
Run "EEPR1868 NOIDE" The "EEPR1868" utility file was included in the
diskette, or you may find "1859EEP.ZIP" in our web site.
   
4. I am sure the IDE port is enabled but the CD-ROM drive not be found still.
Try to run DOS installation program in driver diskette "\dossetup\install". Please follow the instructions on the screen. The settings are base address: 220, IRQ: 5, DMA: 1, MPU-401: 330, joystick: enable, IDE I/O port: 170, IDE IRQ: 15 After exiting this program, reboot your system, then a command "DEVICE= C:\AUDIODRV\ES1868.COM /A:170 /I:F " will be appended in config.sys .
   
5. My system with two IDE ports but more IDE port needed.
For the 3rd IDE setting, it is necessary to change sound card IDE setting for avoid conflict with secondary IDE. Please change IDE setting as "DEVICE= C:\AUDIODRV\ES1868.COM /A:168 /I:A " or "/A:1e8 /I:B" **It is strongly recommend you reserved the secondary IDE for CD-ROM drive. **For the 3rd IDE your CD-ROM driver must support I/O port "168" or "1E8"
