Hi, i recently purchased this great looking Aztech card.

https://ibb.co/8jzFBFp

Unfortunately cant get it working, tried different Aztech drivers.
Googled FCC id: i38-mmsn819 isnt helping much either.

interesting card, seems to be meant to interface with some sort of external I/O box? google said something about a CD-Rom unit... haven't seen that one before, I'd like to know more too ^^

I'd try the waverider drivers, as they have the same chipsets and wavetable

Goldstar interface. I have an external CD-ROM drive with that interface (but no interface card...).

Quite an interesting Aztech card.
I'm wondering whether the jack is a speaker/line out jack or an input jack (line in/mic in).
I agree with imi. Try the drivers for I38-MMSN826. Hopefully the jack is a line out jack which you can then connect to your speakers.

MMSN826 matches the AZT2316 and the ICS MIDI, but what about that AZT2302 - never seen that one before...?

I found this on some Russian forum. This is supposed to be matching ID for the card: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1309&d … 9,4052082&hl=ru

I don't speak Russian, so I had to trust Google Translate 😀

And these should be the drivers for the Explorer: https://www.phantom.sannata.org/download/file … a246125327061ca

Thanks everybody, yes it seems to be Aztech Explorer. I listened some samples of Waverider 32 (same wavetable chip), it imho very nice sounding card. Unfortunately mine seems to be dead, no driver or software can see the card 🙁
This card has seen some bad days, few capacitors were bent down, maybe this can be the problem?

Indeed - I have pictures of a a number of different Aztech sound cards and none of them has that AZT2302 chipset.
However, the ICS Wavefront & WaveROM chips are the same as that of the Waverider 32+ (I38-MMSN826).
