JSI Tip 2580. My ATAPI CD-ROM changer only shows a single drive letter in Winodws 2000?


It is probably NOT on the HCL.

Management of Removeable Storage has been moved to RSM in Windows 2000.

Right click on MY Computer and press Manage. Double-click Removeable Storage / Medial Pools / Import / CD-ROM. You should be able to expand Physical Locations to also see the slots so you can mount and dismount and given disc.

Here is a Mount.bat batch file you can modify to mount changer discs:

 
@echo OFF

rem - Extract the friendly name of your changer using: rsm view /tchanger
rem - then replace the string following the /cf with the string returned.
rem example:
rem rsm view /tchanger
rem CHANGER
rem NEC CD-ROM DRIVE:253
rem The command completed successfully.
