i have these 2 cards that i own. they are opti cards and the amount of different models from different brands is amazing.
seems that many Opti cards were built, some even got a fake yamaha.
Card#1 is OPTi 82C929A and has an Analog devices AD1846JP soundport and a real yamaha ymf-262M
model says " High fidelity 16i"
after a long time searching on google i found https://www.dearhoney.idv.tw/Museum/OPTi/HF16i.htm
company : NewCom Inc. High Fidelity 16i(HF16i)
and after a long time searching online i found a link that has the specific drivers for that card, i know it because its listed on the readme.txt on this link https://www.helpjet.net/Fg-72551715-51924051.html
Card#2 is an Opti 82C930A and it only has a yamaha ymf-262M . No brand, only S0930S0010 and FCC ID: LWE-ATC930 appears on the PCB
After a lot of time searching on google the only thing i found was this company"Cheng Fong Technology Sound Card"
sadly i could not find any drivers for it.
so my question is, are OPTi drivers universal? can i get any other 82C930A driver and make it work with the card using the sony or panasonic connector?
Are these cards good for retro gaming? i kind of like them because they have all the cdrom drive connectors which is something not so common, i saw a couple Soundblaster16 that got them all too.
