Hi all,

Really hope someone can help here - when i try to run swiv 3d in MS DOS, the game begins to start, but then fails and claims there is no "CD-ROM!"

The CD is in the drive - so was hoping someone might have an idea whats going wrong :(

Cheers A

Are we talking about real MS DOS mode or DOSBox here?

Yeah I am trying to run the game in DOSBox - get the same error if in that and the command prompt in windows XP :(

Must have missed something...

Add this line in dosbox:

mount d X:\ -t cdrom -ioctl

The X is your real drive letter in windows.

That should do it, you will have the CDDrive as D in dosbox.

*Edit: you still must mount a C in dosbox, of course.
