Default Dosbox: CD-Rom problems

I've just discovered a CD containing a full version of the old game MILLENIA.
Great!

DosBox:
mount c c:\ (yes i know, sorry)
mound d d:\ -t cdrom

But when I start the game it tells me this:

Searching For CD-ROM ...
Unable to locate CD-ROM with Millenia on it. Make sure that
the disc has been inserted into your CD-ROM drive.

So ... hm what?
The disc is running quite well; I tried to create an ISO and get it work this way.
Same result.
I tried to run the game from the CD.
Same result.
So ... what? Who can help?

For starters, this http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?t=14406 can help improve your mount skills.

2'th: what also would help is to know :
mount c c:\ (yes i know, sorry)
mound d d:\ -t cdrom

What you do between above and underneath, did you correctly install? How you try to run the game? whatever whatnots ....
But when I start the game...

3'th OS?
4'th: dosbox version?
6'th: dosbox readme? Fine tuning your CD mount?
7'th: original CD or copy?

Details ... details ... We're curious . :laugh:

And if *(yes i know, sorry)* you know WHY you do it? There is NO reason to do it.

Hi, thanks for quick reply.

First, I installed the game in WinXp with VDMSound. Everything went fine, but I kept getting msgs that I do not have enough EMM (although I followed a guide that SHOULD work), so I took DosBox.

OK, DosBox 0.72 starts.
I type:


mount c c:\
mound d d:\ -t cdrom
C:\
cd millenia
mil (mil.bat starts the game)

Then I get this msg:
Searching For CD-ROM ...
Unable to locate CD-ROM with Millenia on it. Make sure that
the disc has been inserted into your CD-ROM drive.

End of story.

-> delete your millenia folder -(doesn't work anyway, really, do it, the cfg file is wrong, won't work)-

-> create a c:\oldgames
-> run dosbox, mount lines:
mount c c:\oldgames
mount d d:\ -t cdrom
d:
now install the game from D to C:\millenia in dosbox

to run your game:
mount c c:\oldgames
mount d d:\ -t cdrom
c:
cd millenia
mil

Keep in mind that your C in dosbox is c:\olgames in windows.
Should work, if you have the original cd. Do you?

If you want to use an ISO of the CD, use IMGMOUNT to mount it.

Still the same. Doesn't want to take my CD.

There is the possibiliy to play from CD directly; doesn't work as well.

Yes, I installed everything in Dosbox.
Just to be sure I deleted everything and re-installed.

And when I try to run directly from CD it still says ...

Searching For CD-ROM ...

the disc has been inserted into your CD-ROM drive.

End of story.

Silly question: Is the CD drive designated d in windows? If not, change the last of the 2 "d"s in your mount command to match the designated letter.

Well it seems that you've done everything you could, I had a similar problem with the CD version of Mega Man X for Dos. Try as I might I could not get it to run. I found out later that the CD was jacked up and that it would not even run on a Pure Dos system. what I'm trying to say is that the CD may be shot, and that may be the problem. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
