I picked up a Tandy Sensation! computer today at a yard sale. It went for around $8,000(?) in 1992. Got it for free. Anyway, it comes with Windows 3.1 and MS-DOS 6.0. Everything works perfectly- except the CD-ROM drive. It's detected by the PC and all that, but the disk tray doesn't open. I've tried the manual way(Push tray in slightly), and the automated way(Eject button in Media Player). The automated way spurts out "The MCI Device you are using does not support this command.". Here's a picture of the PC:
Is this truly an IDE CD-Rom? Some of the first drives like this look like they are IDE but they are NOT they are propriety using the same IDE cable. If it is old IDE and you cannot find a drive slow enough to work in this system I have a shelf full of OLD CD-Rom drives from years ago that will work just fine. Some are brand new never used. You pay shipping and you have 2 or 3 for FREE.
