I own a MA5ASOUND now and I am pretty pleased with that card.
It's ALS100 (Non+) based, has high dma support, wb header and a working IDE interface. But something is quite weird: after post it get's the usual i5 d1 and h5 by the pnp bios and sometimes also I9 for the mpu device. Mostly wenn an IDE drive is connected but only after a cold boot. The IDE drive works flawlessly. CD drive for example is recognised by the BIOS allthough it is a pnp card. Does anyone know something about this strange behaviour?
P.s.: the Soundblaster resources are always assigned by bios

Thats funny MA5ASOUND name/FCCID was used not only for ALS007 and ALS100 ISA cards. But for ALS4000 PCI card too.

That's indeed funny. I did not know that by now.
But here is a pic of mine:

What I forgot: I don't think the card is damaged, more that it's chip or BIOS specific because I have a second one by another manufacturer wich has the same behaviour.
