Re: C-Media 8738 dos initialize tool "PATCHED"

Thanks for sharing this. Tried the modified "driver" on a system with an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard. I gave my two CMI 8738 based card a try. The newest card could run Duke Nukem 3D for about 10 min before crashing but the older revision card failed the DMA test in the setup menu of DN3D. Both …

Re: Tips for buying a sound card

I haven't had much success with the ESS Solo-1 and motherboards with SIS chipset. It also looks like SIS dropped DDMA support after the 962 series of southbridges but even on the 962UA the Solo-1 fails. The ESS Solo-1 runs very well on chipsets from VIA but then you have to get a new motherboard.

Re: What's wrong with all these sound cards???

The Solo-1 requires DOS drivers to be installed for it to fully work in DOS. Then, you get Soundblaster Pro 2.0 and Adlib support. Just use the search, we should have many threads here about the Solo-1 in DOS. It's a great card. It's a great sound card for DOS if you use a VIA chipset. Doesn't run …

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

I'm happy you remember that I have a Dell V400. I use that for windows 98, but this is a different computer that is only dos. technically it's an HP Vextra XM2 but I've swapped many parts in and out of it. If it's still got a 486 installed I wouldn't even bother getting it to work in that machine …

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

If you're still using the Dell Dimension V400 then the onboard YMF724 will be a much better option for DOS gaming. For the Live! you will need two IRQs, one PCI IRQ and one for Sound Blaster emulation. Reserve the IRQ for the emulation in the BIOS so no other device steals it.

Re: MIDI Tx Level on Soundblaster PCI Gameport

One other problem is that the sound card probably has it own resistor between the sound IC and DB15 connector, perhaps as much as 10kΩ, so even on a short circuit you will only manage 0,3mA output current. You can see from this datasheet that the minimum high voltage is 2V for a typical part so it …

Re: Possible bug/limitation in rloew's TRIM.EXE (TRIM utility for DOS) or issue related to IDE to SATA adapter (JMD330)

I ordered a Startech PCI1PEX1 too . Maybe I can run a PCI Express AHCI SATA controller in a Pentium 3 under Windows 98 SE . Did some testing with an ASM1061 based controller in AHCI mode on an PLX based bridge some days ago. The systems (Pentium II 333 on an Abit LX6 and Penium III-S @1050MHz on an …

Re: Via 686B and YMF744 Dos Mixer Settings

OP already said they were running the modified SETUPDS. In my sig links I have all of the modified SETUPDS versions saved on my Google Drive plus a whole bunch of other stuff. No need to even try to search for these anymore... took me quite a while to wrangle them all up. Oh, missed that. Shouldn't …

Re: Via 686B and YMF744 Dos Mixer Settings

Why on earth are you using DSDMA? that is only for chipsets that don't support DDMA.. and your chipset does, so no need to use it at all. All you will accomplish is less compatibility if you run it in DSDMA mode. The stock version of SETUPDS doesn't detect the 686B southbridge, you have to use a …
