Potential Problem with Sound Blaster AWE64 Value (CT4520)

Postby the_ultra_code » 2017-10-29 @ 17:42

Hello!

I just wanted somebody to clarify the situation I am having with my Sound Blaster AWE64 Value (CT4520) whenever I enter MS-DOS mode under Windows 98 SE.

As you can see from this shot of my screen (https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4481/37986419002_bbb5547b03_b.jpg), it says that only "2 of 3 Creative Plug and Play devices" were "Successfully configured". Why? What is the third Creative PnP device that is not successfully configured?

For reference:
* My motherboard is an Asus P3B-F with PnP enabled in the BIOS.
* I have set up MS-DOS mode according to PhilsComputerLab's guide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f52bZzWs-u4).
* I have also set up my AWE64 Value in MS-DOS according to PhilsComputerLab's other guide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiSM5pUGab4&t=).
* I do not have a joystick or external MIDI device hooked up to the joystick port on the card. The only thing that is connected to the card is my pair of Apple Earpods with a 3.5mm audio cable to the "Line Out" of the card.
* I do have a Sound Blaster Live! (CT4760) installed in a PCI Slot above the AWE64 Value (which is not used while in MS-DOS mode).

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

One of the 3 devices has been disabled, most likely IDE. You can check using ICU for example.

1: "SB16"
2: AWE synth stuff
3: Joystick port

Based on your SB string that it spits out, it is your joystick port.

That explains it! Thanks!

I was a little worried that something was not configured correctly. :)
