Re: Best and worst sound cards you have ever owned?

[...] All three ALS100 cards I've bought now refuse to work on my machine, one is detected by Windows/UNISOUND only works for a couple of seconds, the others aren't detected most of the time and when they are they refuse to play audio as well.

Re: Are there other S3 Trio64 V2 Drivers Available?

Also, the driver Win98 comes with is newer, being from 1999, is there any way I could extract that and use it under Win95? I've transplanted Ati Rage Pro WinME drivers to Win98, it was a matter of figuring out in which .cab file on the cd the files were, and then extracting the relevant .inf/vxd/ …
