A old Mac user asked:

Thanks and best regards. Mauro



Dear Mauro,

use the original Apple CD Driver,
you can install it from your System 7.5 Utilitys Software (I think...).

Or try the application "SCSI-Probe" to mount the Drive.

At Freak ftp://ftp.cac.psu.edu/pub/mac/system/cd_rom/

you find the following installer:

Control Panel cdrom5.3.2.hqx

From the read me file (parts):

Quote:
Name: Apple CD-ROM Software
Version: 5.3.2
Released: February 27, 1997
Requires: US System 7.1 or later
Description:
Software that lets you use an Apple CD-ROM drive with your
Macintosh computer. This version includes improved support
for CD Extra discs.

This software consists of a self-extracting archive. To use,
download it to your hard drive and then double-click it to
decompress the software.

From the Read Me included with this software:

About Apple CD-ROM Version 5.3.2

This file includes important information about Apple CD-ROM
version 5.3.2, software that lets you use an Apple CD-ROM
drive with your Macintosh computer. You need system software
version 7.1 or later of the Macintosh Operating System (Mac
OS) to use this software. Because this information is not
included in the documentation accompanying the product, you
may want to print it. To do so, choose Print from the File
menu.

Installation Instructions

IMPORTANT The full instructions below assume you have an
Apple CD-ROM installation disk. If, instead, you're
downloading the Apple CD-ROM software from an online
service, follow step 1, below. Next, copy the software onto
your hard disk and double-click the Installer icon to start
the Installer. Then follow steps 5 through 9.

To install this extension, follow these steps:

1. While holding down the Shift key, choose Restart from the
Special menu and continue to hold the key down until you see
a message. When a message on the screen tells you that the
extensions are off, release the Shift key.

When you restart the Macintosh after you install Apple
CD-ROM version 5.3.2, the extensions will turn on again.

2. Make sure the Apple CD-ROM installation disk is locked.

3. Insert the Apple CD-ROM installation disk into a disk
drive.

If you can't see the Installer icon, double-click the disk
icon to open it.

4. To start the Installer program, double-click its icon.

5. In the Welcome dialog box that appears, click Continue.

After a moment, the Install dialog box appears.

IMPORTANT When you started the Installer, it checked to make
sure you have what you need to use the software. If you're
missing anything, you'll now see a message that tells you
what you need. You won't be able to install the software
until you correct the problem. If a dialog box says you
don't have the correct system software, you can purchase a
new version of system software from an Apple-authorized
dealer.

6. Make sure the disk named in the Destination Disk box is
the one on which you want to install the software. If it's
not, click Switch Disk until the correct disk name appears.

7. Click the Install button.

The Installer takes a few moments to calculate what needs to
be done and then begins to install files.

8. Follow the instructions on the screen until the
installation is complete.

9. When you see a message reporting that installation was
successful, click Restart to restart your Macintosh.


The Apple CD-ROM software is now installed on the hard disk.
