RE: virtual CD programs for W98
After struggling for another 4 or 5 hours,I am asking for help again....
Try again...when I run fakecd - windows explorer doesn't show the new drive.
I have tried booting to DOS but couldn't figure out how to get etka to run
Farstones' Virtual CD 2000 is the one which put the new CD ikon on that
explorer could see. Its properies are 0 bytes used 0 bytes free and trying
to explore it comes up with a message - cannot access drive G: drive not
Without it I open etka but there aren't any
If you could recall and copy your batch file or sequence for
running the virtual program for me I'd appreciate it.
I'm sure there's something I'm missing- hopefully simple.
Iam running W98 SE and am on a AMD K^-2 400 machine(new processor and MB).
