Download #2 worked great on my AppleCD SC and Macintosh SE.

A word of warning: Even though the service manual on this page is for the 150/300 CD ROM drives, you cannot use this driver with an Apple CD 300. It is solely for the old and slow 150 Apple CD ROMs. It will show the problems belgavox described in the comment below. (Instead use a later version of the CD ROM software to drive your CD300)

I have installed the second file (german installer) on System 6.0.8 but my Mac Plus still won't mount the CD-ROM. The CD-ROM does show up on the SCSI bus so I think that this is down to a driver problem. Do we know that the german installer will work on System 6.0.8 and recognize an AppleCD 300? If so, where could I find a CD image to burn on a blank CD to try this?

There is a CD installer here as part of:
System 7.0 plus CD-ROM installer and System 7 Tuneup 800K Floppies (4.62 MB)

Not sure what you would need a manual for as it just installs the CD-ROM extension.
Any OS past 7.1 would have the CD-ROM extension as part of the OS install.
There is nothing unique about 150E or 300E.
Standard SCSI number for Apple CD-ROMs is "3", both internal and external.

If someone finds the English or other version, please add, hopefully an English manual as well.
