Question about IBM ThinkPad 380ED
This file/command, mscdex 2.23, is the MS-DOS CD-ROM extensions file. If this has glitched or is corrupted it generally won't stop the computer from running, but it will stop it from reading CD's or newer CD's. The first link bellow is the history and the download for the mscdex, but the machine will need to be up and running in order to download it. If you can't get the machine running, try to reinstall the operating system.You may need to flash the bios if it won't let you install the new system or read from the disc. The second link bellow is for the most recent bios flash for your machine. To flash the bios you will need to make a bootable floppy, using a different computer (obviously). The third link is for a updated CD-ROM driver from IBM, that may do the same as the mscdex, and the fourth link is to the driver list for the 380ed at IBM's support site. You might browse over them and find some updated drivers or patches you need.
