CDS-940 SOFTWARE INSTALLATION FOR DOS/WINDOWS 3.1

A. AUTOMATIC DRIVER INSTALLATION
The CDS-940 device driver installation Diskette provide an INSTALL program to help you to
install the device driver into the computer easily. Please follow the instructions below to proceed
with automatic installation.

1. Insert the device driver diskette into a floppy disk drive on your computer.

2. Change the working directory to the floppy drive containing the device driver diskette by
typing A: or B: then press ENTER.

3. At the DOS prompt (A:\> or B:\>), type "INSTALL" followed by the ENTER key.

4. Choose the "CD-ROM + Sound", Select the I/O port and Interrupt on the screen.

5. Power off computer, insert the CDS-940 card into PCMCIA slot, connect the CD-ROM
and Sound module

6. Reboot your computer to activate the CD-ROM drive.

7. Install the ESS Audio Application program as described in section C.


B. MANUAL DRIVER INSTALLATION
You may also manually install the PCMCIA CD-ROM device driver if the default setting conflicts
with your system. Perform the following procedure to complete the manual installation.

1. Create a subdirectory on C drive named "CDROM", copy the files EXPCDS.EXE and
TXCS.SYS from the CDS-940 driver disk to the CDROM directory.

2. Add "LASTDRIVE=Z" to the TOP of your CONFIG.SYS file. If you already have a
LASTDRIVE line with a letter other than Z, change it to Z.

3. Add the following lines near the BOTTOM of your CONFIG.SYS file:
DEVICE=C:\CDROM\EXPCDS.EXE /P:220 /I:10
DEVICE=C:\CDROM\TXCS.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:220

If your CONFIG.SYS file is already loaded with PCMCIA software, such as Cardsoft of
SystemSoft or Cardtalk of Databook, it is necessary to add the above line AFTER the PCMCIA
software. Otherwise, the PCMCIA interface card will not be initialized properly. To make sure if
any PCMCIA software has been loaded in your system and to know more about PCMCIA, please
refer to the section of PCMCIA Software Information.

EXPCDS.EXE is the device driver for the PCMCIA CD-ROM. The parameters of
EXPCDS.EXE are described as below:

/P is used to set the I/O port for CD-ROM: 220 or 240, The default setting is /P:220
the I/O port for Sound Device will be 230 if CD-ROM I/O is 220; or 250 if CD-ROM I/O
is 240

/I is used to set the IRQ number, the valid IRQs are 5, 7, 9, and 10, the default setting is
/I:10

/D is used to set the device name. It can be any name up to 8 characters.
4. Add the following line near the TOP of your AUTOEXEC.BAT:
C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /M:4

If your AUTOEXEC.BAT file loads a menu program such as DOSSHELL or Windows, you have
to add the above line to start your menu program. Otherwise, MSCDEX will not have a chance to
load before your menu program begins.

The examples above shows the default setting. The /D: switch indicates the device name. It
MUST be the same name that you specify for the /D: switch of EXPCDS.EXE in your
CONFIG.SYS file. The /M: switch indicates how much memory to allocate for caching
information on the CD-ROM. The default /M:4 caches 8KB.

For more information about the switches of MSCDEX, please type "HELP MSCDEX" at the
DOS prompt.

5. Power off computer, insert the CDS-940 card into PCMCIA slot, connect the CD-ROM
and Sound module
