LD-V8000. The driver will not work with the Pioneer 6000 series of
2. OEMSETUP.INF - This is a text file which must be located in the same
subdirectory as MCIVPION.DRV when using the Windows 3.1 Control Panel
for multimedia driver installation.
Installation and configuration:
1. Open the Control Panel and access the Drivers dialog box by double-
clicking in the Drivers icon. The list of Drivers which are loaded each
time you start a Windows session is displayed in the dialog box.
Click on the Add button to access the Add Driver dialog box. A list of
default drivers which come with Windows is displayed. From this list
highlight the Unlisted or Updated Driver selection from the list box.
Type the path to the drive containing the Pioneer MCI driver and
OEMSETUP.INF file in the central text box and click on OK. The driver
will now install.
2. After Windows installs the MCI driver a Setup dialog box will appear
to allow the selection of ComPorts 1-4. This version of the Pioneer MCI
driver only supports 4800 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit.
The Pioneer videodisc player must be set the same.
