After formatting my C: drive I was able to install DOS and Win 3.1 using a floppy disk, but the system can not see the D drive. I used CyberDrive’s file cyb212.exe to modify my config.sys and autoexec.bat. Now it shows I have a drive D but I can't get to it no matter what I type or what CD I use. I am getting this message (CDR101:Not Ready Reading D) When I start the computer the light flashes on the CD ROM so I am guessing it is physically OK. I am a novice. Can anyone help? I have Windows 98 on a CD but can’'t install because I can't get to the D: drive. This is an old computer and I am fixing it up for a student.

I will watch for posts but you can email me if you like at shadylady736@hotmail.com

If you're really running Windows 3.11, you're well overdue for a new computer.

Buy a new computer--they are around $300
