Here's the drivers I got with a Typhoon Sound Systems
Sound Card 16 "Gold" 3D - Based on the Opti 82C924

This includes Win 3.11 & Win 95 Drivers

Dunno, might help someone? There's hardly any info online about these cards.

Great work ! Will try to add the last 3 file posts to library this weekend.

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....

When making copies of driver disks (or any other software), please always try to make disk images of them instead of copying the files separately from the disks. Sometimes the installations programs don't work correctly if the files are copied separately and the installation program is asking for a floppy disk with a certain volume label.

I often use WinImage on Windows to make disk images, so I can recommend that software for making them. But it is necessary to keep the floppy disks write protected, all modern versions of Windows will otherwise modify the floppy disks without asking the user. It creates some hidden directory on floppy disks.

On Linux, command "dd" can be used to make disk images of floppy disks.

I'm unable to reply to your PM due to my newbie level of Vogons (my slow transition from being a lurker to a contributor is evident haha) but I've created disk images from the Typhoon Sound Card (Opti 924 chipset) and will do that with all the disks in write-protect from now on.

Floppy images (created w/WinImage) are here:

And if looking at this screenshot, here is the reason why always keep write protection on, if copying files from floppy disks to Windows machines. Windows always makes a "System Volume Information" directory on floppy disks that don't have write protection on. Often this is not a problem, but it is better to avoid.
