I don't know much about this stuff, but I think IDECDEX is a program to add CD-ROM support to MSXDOS2. A harddisk is not a CD-ROM, hence the error message.

I assume that you are using a sunrise IDE interface, the correct program to use can be downloaded from the Sunrise website, IDEFDISK

30 partitions? Maybe you should consider FAT16.

And FAT16 can be downloaded from Okei's Homepage.
