Description

This article is from the comp.sys.acorn FAQ, by Paul Vigay with numerous contributions by others.

4.7) After fitting the RISC OS 4 upgrade my CD Rom reports 'Drive Empty'.

This is generally caused by upgrading machines fitted with slower CD Rom drives to RISC OS 4 and is caused by the CDFSSoftATAPI module trying to access the drive too fast. One remedy is to obtain a soft-loadable version of CDFSSoftATAPI from RISC OS 3.7, copy it into your !Boot.Choices.Boot.PreDesk directory and then *UNPLUG the CDFSSoftATAPI module in RISC OS 4.

Please feel free to email me if you encounter this problem because I encountered it myself upon fitting RISC OS 4.
