  • Scholastic's The Magic School Bus Explores the Rainforest

This article was previously published under Q172007


Magic School Bus (MSB) Explores the Rainforest hangs at the Driver's License screen after you click the Snake to exit the bus. Your pointer remains an hourglass, the background music continues to play, and the CD-ROM drive is continually accessed.

When you press the CTRL+ALT+DELETE key combination on your keyboard to open the Close Program dialog box, MSB Rainforest is shown as not responding.

NOTE: On some computers, the program will eventually continue to the next screen if left for a few minutes.


This occurs if you are using real mode (MS-DOS) CD-ROM drivers.


To resolve this problem, update your real mode CD-ROM drivers to Windows 32-bit protected-mode CD-ROM drivers.


Windows protected-mode drivers should be available from the CD-ROM drive manufacturer. Some protected-mode CD-ROM drivers are available in Windows.

For additional information about loading protected mode CD-ROM drivers, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
