Six inches to the right.
I need some help finding some drivers for a Parallel port CD-ROM drive. Problem is, the label with any identifying info has been removed off it. No FCC ID, and very little other info. But here's what I have:
EDEE (seems to be manufacturer) mini-port ECR-176EX.
That's all I have on it. I cracked it open to see if there was any other info, but it didn't.

I need drivers for both 98 and NT. Any help I can get would be appreciated. I have searced all over the web for drivers, and I can't find a thing.

Microsolutions Backpack line is pretty big...was it one of those?

Anyway, they have drivers for all their stuff (we have a parallel backpack 8x CDrom here at work) plus some utilities.

Considering Backpack parallel cdroms are just external drives, I'd expect them to work with other units...but I've not tested this theory :)
