Microsoft SMARTDrive version 5.0 supports CD-ROM drive caching. Any CD-ROM that is supported by Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions (MSCDEX.EXE) can be cached by SMARTDrive.

To take advantage of this feature, you must load MSCDEX.EXE before SMARTDRV.EXE (typically in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file).

To verify that your CD-ROM drive is being cached by SMARTDrive, type smartdrv at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
