I can edit the cfg file and set cdrom_enabled = 1, then the guest detects it but when I load an iso image it does not appear in the guest. In addition, attempting to use any PCem menu options does not respond. Even the X button to close the window does not respond. I have to force close PCem from Task Manager. In PCem v12 loading iso files worked. On my Linux host I have to do the same cfg edit to enable a CD-ROM, but in Linux loading and using iso files works.
If I need to configure the CD-ROM by editing the cfg, what are valid values for cdrom_drive and cdrom_channel? Below is the cfg of my MS-DOS 7.1 guest, trying to boot a Puppy Linux liveCD. In the 430VX BIOS boot order is set to CDROM, C, A. My Windows hosts are Win10 64-bit and Win7 32-bit.
Thanks in advance for any ideas and suggestions!
