help...dreamsnes doesnt detect my cd / burner drives

Post by timetravel42 » Tue Sep 16, 2008 1:08 pm

ok so i have followed the steps and seems like it does not detect any cd drives in my pc. here are the steps iam following

1. Go into the "pike" directory
2. Right-click on on gtkpike-setup and choose install.
... Wait while it installs. It might seem to hang for several minutes,
but it's actually working really hard. Be patient.
3. Go into the "dsinstaller" directory
4. Double-click on "dreamsnesinstall"[/u]

That's it. The installer will update itself if needed.

as soon as i double click on the dreamsnes install there is a little black(dos type ) window that just sits there. i have left it for 5 mins no go
and then if you try double clicking the dreamsnesinstall again this time it comes up saying no cdr drives detected????

my system spec are. 2.4 pentium 4 , 2 gig of ram i have a dvd rom and cd burner drive and using xp profossional.
and i already download a small exe program called aspi layer... which i guess should of fixed it but it didnt

I doubt anyone uses Pike anymore. Try this tutorial: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=68460
