I want to install a second HDD in my old laptop. It's IBM ThinkPad with 100MHz 486DX4 processor. There is Windows 95 installed.
I have an external CD-ROM drive based on shuttle EPAT controller, which turms LPT into IDE (PATA) by emulating a SCSI card.
Installation: HDD as master, CD-ROM drive as slave.
Now: How to configure drivers? Installing both CD and HDD drivers causes that it's possible to read from CD and HDD, but writing to HDD gives "drive not ready" message.
Shuttle's Connect-It detects my EPAT as "EPAT PLUS" and asks for EPATW9x.INF. I don't have this file and it isn't present in major driver sites.
How to configure these drivers to use both CD-ROM drive and HDD?

You sure it is EPATW9x.inf and not Epatap9x.inf: 8-)

The 71eutil.exe should be available here: ... 6.0.0.html

But most probably you need one of the two files listed here: ... om-externo

(that seem to be not available anymore and not cached by The Wayback Machine :? )

You can try :| : ... 8.0.0.html ... 2.0.0.html

Also read here:

The shuttle.exe might have the right file:

or maybe this info helps in searching the driver....

Maybe, just maybe, this could be "the real thing":
