Hello there,

I am getting very frustrated at the moment trying to install
a PCMCIA CDROM under WIN95 on my little PC110.

I have WIN95 installed on the 260MB PCMCIA harddisk. It runs fine
and all functions so far worked fine.
I recently bought a SONY CDROM discman which comes with an Adaptec
1460 SCSI-2 PCMCIA adaptor card. To operate it together with the
harddrive I also bought the Greystone TypeII to Type III adaptor.
But unfortunately the Plug-and-Play function in WIN95 does not seem
to work. This is according to the Sony manual due to my PCMCIA sockets
not being set up for 32 bit mode. But if I use the PCMCIA wizard to switch
to 32 bit operation and cold start the PC110 then WIN95 hangs half way
through start up - probably because of a conflict with the PCMCIA harddisk.
Rebooting again and checking the control panel I find the WIN95 PCIC-PCMCIA
service disabled, probably because of a conflict.

Does anybody know what to do? Do I have to install the PCMCIA drivers
which come along with the Japanese Dos? Or are there updated ones which
from IBM which support WIN95 ?

I am grateful for any suggestion
