Bernoulli Drive Doesn't Mount with DoubleSpace Loaded (96087)

]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.

If DBLSPACE.SYS is loaded in the CONFIG.SYS file before Iomega's device driver (RCD.SYS) then the Bernoulli mount code is discarded before the Bernoulli drives become readable.

RCD.SYS should be loaded as high as possible in the CONFIG.SYS file and MUST be loaded before DBLSPACE.SYS.

NOTE: DBLSPACE.SYS does not load a device driver for DoubleSpace. It simply moves DBLSPACE.BIN in memory.


This problem may be corrected by later version of the Iomega driver. Contact Iomega for more information.
