cdenable.sys is a CD-ROM driver used with Basilisk II and SheepShaver for Windows. You can find it in the “CD-ROM drivers” directory of Basilisk II and SheepShaver.

To use a CD-ROM in Basilisk II or SheepShaver copy the file “cdenable.sys” from the “CD-ROM drivers” directory of the emulator to the “..WINDOWS\system32\drivers” directory of your PC.


cdenable.sys is a 32 bit driver and will not work in a 64 bit version of Windows**. There is no updated version available. If you have the ability to create one, do stop by our forum!

Note that you can place the cdenable.sys driver in the \Windows\SysWOW64\drivers folder to get rid of the (faulty) error reported about not being able to find the driver in the \windows\system32\drivers folder. This will not make the driver work… it will just get rid of the error message.


If you are missing cdenable.sys for some reason, you can find it in the SheepShaver download (the same file can be used in Basilisk II).
