|Question: Can DOS (IBM PCDOS 2K, specifically) see and access SATA CDROM and DVD drives?|
My SATA 2.0 HDD is in IDE emulation/interface mode. I have an IDE DVD writer that is assigned a drive letter and is accessible in my DOS (from boot). But at the same time the second DVD writer that I have, a Pioneer 216 SATA drive, doesn't show up, doesn't get a drive letter at boot, and is obviously not accessible.
Since my IDE writer is on its last legs, I'm thinking of getting another SATA witer, since IDE will soon go the way of the DODO. But I'll buy another IDE writer if DOS can't access SATA writers.
Autoexec.bat: lh c:\dos\mscdex.exe /d:oemcd01
Config.sys: devicehigh=c:\dos\drivers\qcdrom.sys /d:oemcd01
Any ideas? TIA
