Maybe you need to have a CD in the drive when you create the cd object?

I not sure, but I think that the CD-Rom drives in the G3 Powerbooks are
not SCSI drives.  I beleave that the cd object only works with SCSI
drives.  This might be your problem.  Solution get an external drive to
work with or wait for someone to rewrite the object to work with non-SCSI

Will Max applications created on the Windows NT platform work under Windows
95/98 ? Does this meen that Max itself wont run Windows 95/98 ?
