FreeDOS help system (hhstndrd 1.0.8 en)[atapicdd]

Command: atapicdd.sys

ATAPICDD.SYS is a generic CD-ROM driver for IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI). It is still under development. Please use UIDE.SYS instead. ATAPICDD.SYS has to be loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS. When FreeDOS is already running, you can load ATAPICDD.SYS later with DEVLOAD. ATAPICDD.SYS is out of date. You should use UIDE.SYS instead.


device=[drive][path]atapicdd.sys [options] drive the drive letter, e.g. C: path the directory, e.g. \example\


/D:name Sets the device name to "name". Default value: FDCD0000. This name must also be mentioned in autoexec.bat when loading shsucdx / mscdex. /N:x Sets the number of devices to look for to x. Default value: 1


ATAPICDD.SYS is loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS. The option /D: xxxxyyyy must be the same as in SHSUCDX (MSCDEX) which is loaded in AUTOEXEC.BAT.


IN CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS: device=c:\fdos\bin\atapicdd.sys /d: fdc0000 /n:2
