A friend ask me to get his ibm 300 running. After replacing the ide cable and attempting start up, everything went wrong. Finally I formatted and reloaded win 98. I spent hours online downloading the drivers for the video, sound , and modem. It has a dvd and a cdrw drive but the os sees them as cd only drives. Any ideas to fix this.
Did you get find wndows 98 drivers for the dvd and cdrw? I had a similar problem after an XP upgrade. XP saw my CD-RW as a CD only and there were no XP drivers. I changed a BIOS setting but still could only use third part software (Roxio) to write to the drive.
He bought this as a fixer upper. 98 drivers are too old I think. The cdrw and dvd have been added recently.I went to ibm to update bios but their site wont let me have the update.Is their a site for scanning your rig for driver updates ----microsoft said no updates for drivers.
