A 'not accessable' message on a removable drive usually means there's no disk in the drive or the drive can't read the disk.

Was it working OK previously?

That may be the answer.
I am trying to connect it to another computer to see if indeed the drive works.

Did try backpack bantam cd-rewriter on a different computer using same driver and it worked perfectly. No error message.
Am still getting "D:\ is not accessible this folder was moved or removed."
error on original computer.

But...need cd to install.

Does everything show up OK in device manager? I assume it does because the drive shows up. Or maybe there's a resource conflict. Can you make any adjustments to its controller in device manager?

Is its drive letter conflicting with another drive?

Are the 95 versions the same for both computers?

The device manager shows everything is working properly.
Drive letter does not conflict with another drive
When I boot up without the cd attached, only drive A and C show.
The other computer is an XP os.

Oh, I thought both were 95. If an XP OS sees it and 95 doesn't then that must be part of the reason. I'm not familiar with backpack hardware. I did notice there seems to be 95 support for their external cdroms. Do the instructions show any special considerations when configuring for 95?

Is the interface card a parallel port card--I noticed at least some of those drives came with a parallel connection. If so you may need to disable the computers on-board parallel port or change its address and/or IRQ. Try the card in a different slot too.

Sorry I can't be of more help. I've never used one of those drives.
