Installing a Pioneer CD-ROM Drive
Note: If a Pioneer CD-ROM Drive has been connected to your system under DOS or Windows 3.x remove
old Pioneer Drivers from the system before installing Windows95.
The follow these steps to use your Pioneer CD-ROM drive in Windows95:
If you are newly installing a SCSI controller card, Windows95 should automatically detect
the card on boot up. See the Windows95 User's Manual for information about installing
new cards. Also, refer to Troubleshooting, point #1 in this document.
After you have confirmed that the SCSI controller card is properly installed, power down
the Pioneer CD-ROM drive and the computer system. Securely attach the SCSI cable
between the drive and the SCSI controller in the computer.
If the Pioneer drive is the last devicve in the SCSI chain, make sure it is terminated.
DRM-624X Termination ON = DIP SW 2 UP
DRM-604X Termination ON = Set separate Termination Switch ON
DRM-602X Termination ON = DIP SW 2 UP
DR-U124X Termination ON = DIP SW 5 (from right to left) not Jumpered
Note: All units can be easily terminated by using an External Terminator Block and
turning the internal termination switch OFF.
If the Pioneer Drive is in the middle of the SCSI Chain, make sure termination is OFF.
The last device on the SCSI chain and the SCSI controller card must be terminated. If
you also have an internal SCSI device connected to the controller, disable termination on
Verify that each SCSI device is set to a unique SCSI ID address.
