What to do to get a 24x CD-ROM to Work?

I just bought a Creative 24 Speed DCD-rom (Panasonic?) and I can’t get it to
work. I have an old P-90 with a PCI HD controller. OS/2 does not recognize it
at all. I have 2 HDs on one Channel and nothing on the other. I knoe that I
have to do something to my IMB1506.ADD but I don’t know what to do.

Could someone please help me get this to work.

Thanks.

    Which version of Warp are you using? ANy Fixpaks applied?

    Warp 3 shipped without support for ATAPI CD-ROM drives. There is a
    file called ATAPI.ZIP that adds that support (or, you could apply the
    latest Fixpak and get it all).

    There are some issues with Warp 4 that I don’t fully comprehend (I
    haven’t paid attention because it didn’t affect me). I have a SCSI
    disk system with an ATAPI CD-ROM drive. I disabled the Primary IDE
    controller on the MB, and attached the CD-ROM as the MASTER on the
    Secondary controller. It worked fine for me, right out of the box.

    There *is* a new IBM1S506.ADD driver in a file called IDEDASD.EXE on
    the OS2DDPAK site

    http://service.software.ibm.com/os2ddpak/index.htm

    You might want to try that one.

    This summer I bought a new PC that first was equipped with a Creative 12x
    CD-1220E and I had problems with the install, due to faulty memory. I then
    contacted Creative about this CD-room and got the following reply:

    I would make certain that you have the drive jumpered to Master, rather
    than to Slave.  Then I would get the updated IDE CD-ROM Drivers that IBM
    has available as /pub/os2/os2fixes/atapi.zip on their ftp site
    software.watson.ibm.com (if you have Warp 4, or a recent service pack for
    Warp
    3, these are probably not necessary).

    Also, if you are using a PnP card to control the drive, you may want to
    look on one of the OS/2 ftp sites for a file called sb16_104.zip.  This
    package contains a driver to initialize the IDE portion of a PnP card under
    OS/2 (however, this is NOT a Creative driver).

    When the PC returned from the vendor after repair they had replaced the
    Creative CD-room with a TEAC x24, which works excellent with Warp 4, but
    also Warp 3. BTW, I have 2 HD:s as master and slave. The CD-room is master.
