 *************************************************************************

 * With this SCSI driver you will be able to connect other (internal) SCSI peripherals 

 * besides the HP CD-Writer, and use them under OS/2.    

 *************************************************************************

 * However, for the CD-Writer to work you need copyrighted, propietary drivers that   

 * come bundled with OS/2 CD-recording software. (UNITE CD MAKER or maybe 

 * GEAR for OS/2).

Quick Note: 

----------

    Like many OS/2 users, I'm beggining to wonder what's the

problem with Hewlett Packard and their lack of OS/2 support. They have

great products like their ScanJet scanners, or the HP SureStore 

CD-Writer, but they don't include .ADD drivers for *ANY* of their SCSI

controllers bundled with their products (not to talk about scanner 

drivers or OS/2 CD-R software). They have an "os/2 software" section in

their support home page that is completely EMPTY! (no files at all!!).


    If you want to use your HP SureStore unit with OS/2, you

have two choices for native CD-recording: GEAR, and UNITE CD-MAKER.

Gear doesn't include support for the SureStore's bundled SCSI card,

but UNITE CD-Maker does.


    These drivers come from the UNITE CD-Maker freely 

distributable demo version, available on their web site at the

Cirrus Technology web site (http://www.cirunite.com). After looking at

the drivers, I found that the SCSI driver (c) belongs to Advanced Systems 

Products, makers of the SCSI interface, and not Cirrus.


    So, instead of writing just a text file pointing to the 

Unite demo, I've written a driver profile so you can install the AdvanSys

SCSI drivers automatically using the Device Driver Install object in the

OS/2 System Setup folder.



INSTALLATION:

------------


    From the OS/2 desktop, press the 2nd mouse button and select

"System Setup" from the pop-up menu, then double-click on the "Device 

Driver Install" object.


    Or, from an os/2 command prompt, type DDINSTAL.


    The drivers will be installed automatically. 

    Shutdown and reboot your system.
