Default MS-DOS 6.22 problem

I have an old PC with, MS-DOS 6.22, and it runs great, save for one major problem. It cannot find the CD drive. BIOS can find it, but not DOS. I've tried running mscdex, but I think I'm missing something. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

device=himem.sys /testmem:off
device=oakcdrom.sys /D:oemcd001
device=btdosm.sys
device=flashpt.sys
device=btcdrom.sys /D:oemcd001
device=aspi2dos.sys
device=aspi8dos.sys
device=aspi4dos.sys

autoexec.bat

LH MSCDEX.EXE /D:oemcd001 /L:D

Two devices make your CD ROM work. You need your CDROM driver, usually a .sys file, and you need to load MSCDEX.EXE, which is shown above.
