Installation. Help!!!

After several years i decided to resurect my copy of warp 3 and install it
on a primary partion on my desk top.

downloaded like a dream, however it has failed to recognise either of the CD
Rom drives.

I would be grateful for any suggested remedies. I’m sure their must be a fix
oack or further drivers available
but where do i find them.

thanks for any help,

Mark Jones

    You probably need the IDE driver update for the installation diskettes

    Warp 3 shipped before ATAPI CD-ROM drives were so popular (aka, they
    barely existed).

    The drivers you need are on the OS/2 Device Driver Pak Online (DDPAK)
    site.

    ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/products/os2/os2ddpak/idedasd.exe

    idedasd.exe is a self-extracting archive that contains the updated IDE
    Drivers (greater than 4Gb Hard Drive support) as well as ATAPI CD-ROM
    Drive support.

    The drivers contained in this archive work with Warp 3, Warp Connect
    and Warp 4.

    I found that there is one associated CDROM file system file that needed
    to be replaced also, in my case that is not included in that package.
    The file is updated in a fixpack but isn’t included in the driver
    package.  If you can boot but the CDROM fails to read let me know and
    I’ll dig around and figure out which one it is.

    Off the top of my head I think it’s either cdfs.ifs or ibmidecd.flt.

    The files included with IDEDASD.EXE are:

    ibm1s506.add |   55658|07-12-99| 3:48p
    ibm1s506.sym |   11924|07-12-99| 3:48p
    IBMATAPI.FLT |   30472|03-22-99| 6:13p
    ibmidecd.flt |   24324|03-22-99| 5:10p
    IDEDASD.DDP  |     387|06-04-99| 2:07p
    os2cdrom.dmd |   27936|06-03-99| 5:25p
    os2dasd.dmd  |   40876|05-03-99| 5:42p
    README.TXT   |   23779|06-07-99| 3:40p

    Instructions for applying the changes are in the README.TXT file.

    If you do, in fact, need the CDFS.IFS File System update (I know
    you’ll need it if you want to read Joliet 2 CDs), you can get that
    from the same location:

    ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/products/os2/os2ddpak/cdfs.exe

    According to the DDPAK site, all that’s needed for ATAPI CD-ROM
    Support is IDEDASD.EXE.

    Files included in the CDFS.EXE archive are:

    CDFS.IFS     |   45144|05-19-97| 9:13p
    README.1ST   |    2808|02-28-97| 9:09a

    To get the Joliet Support with this version of CDFS.IFS, you need to
    add the /W switch to the line in your CONFIG.SYS file that loads the
    file system.

    IFS=C:\OS2\BOOT\CDFS.IFS /W

    Instructions for applying the new File System support are in the
    README.1ST file.

    I used the updated (I’m talking Warp 3 here) idedasd package and it used
    to work with an ancient Sony CDU-55E on large drives.  But when I
    switched to a Acer 40X it refused to do anything when the CD started up.

    Changing, including that file fixed the problem.
