Patch for cdrom.sys (NT4)
Fixes Video-CD reading bugs. Should also understand
CD/DVD-ROM/R/RW disks (CD-R/RW is written by me, DVD code is taken
from MS driver for w2k). Reports comprehensive status for
blank/not-closed/damaged recordable disks instead of NO_MEDIA_IN_DEVICE.
However, some disks are so damaged, that cannot be recognized by the drive at all.
1. copy cdromx.sys from cdromx_v4.rar/tgz (38.7 Kb/40.3 Kb) to
If something goes wrong, it worth installing Debug-build from cdromx_v4_Dbg.rar/tgz (70.2 Kb/75.2 Kb) and capture logs from it.
You can do it with DbgPrint Dump utility.
This utility must be installed with the following command line:
DbgPrintLog.exe -full -T DTN -wd X:\dir_for_logs -drv B -svc A
-drvopt StopOnBufferOverflow 1 -drvopt BufferSize 16384 CdRom.log
cdromx_v4.rar/tgz (38.7 Kb/40.3 Kb)
cdromx_v4_Dbg.rar/tgz (70.2 Kb/75.2 Kb)
Update. There were many changes and fixes in the original driver, I can't even remember all them...
cdromx_v3.rar/tgz (34.2 Kb/35.6 Kb)
cdromx_v3_Dbg.rar/tgz (154 Kb/171.6 Kb)
There was a bug. Driver worked on R/RW devices only. Already fixed:
cdromx_v2.rar/tgz (26.2 Kb/27.2 Kb)
The first version
cdromx_v1.rar/tgz (25.4 Kb/26.3 Kb)
