System Hangs When SCSI Driver Is Loaded After DBLSPACE.SYS (103668)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.


SCSI device drivers loaded high or loaded after MS-DOS 6.2 DBLSPACE.SYS in the CONFIG.SYS file may cause the system to stop responding (hang).


To work around this problem, load your SCSI device driver before DBLSPACE.SYS in the CONFIG.SYS file. If your system still hangs, load the device driver low (that is, change "DEVICEHIGH=" to "DEVICE=" and remove the /L parameter). For example, change

devicehigh /L:1,1234 =c:\scsi.sys
