I just finished loading (and reloading) 14 games for my five year old daughter. The problem I'm having is that four of the programs will not run because they can't find a CD-Rom drive. The entire contents of the CD's have been copied onto the HD. The system I'm running is Win 98 on a V3 i-opener. How do I get past the CD-Rom not found message or "Fake" the existence of a CD-Rom so the software will run?
The programs are;
- 101 Dalmatians
- Phonics Quest
- Crayola Print Factory
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
On a side note:
A couple of interesting caveats about this Win98 installation. I used an eMachines OEM restore CD to do the Win 98 installation but at the reboot prompt I moved the HD to the i-opener to insure that the initial configuration would be the i-opener (BTW; the eMachine was reloaded with Win 2000). When booting the i-opener now, there is a period of time when the screen displays a bunch of vertical randomly colored bars with random alpha-numeric characters in them. Sometimes it will also display the "Windows" logo as a fuzzy black and white negative, all of which goes away just before the boot completes. Although curious, it has not really bothered anything for about a year. The really interesting part is that, if I plug the i-O's HD back into the eMachine and try to boot from it the eMachine will not recognize the existence of the OS even though it will recognize the HD as the master. But if I make the i-O's HD the slave I can still read and write from/to it. Has anybody seen anything like that before?
