Hi, I acquired a PCMCIA Digital 16bits audio adapter, but I'm unable to get it working on DOS games. In theory that card is a clone of an IBM PCMCIA sound card (IBM 3D Sound Card, but I'm not absolutely sure). I'm working on a Toshiba T1950CS laptop, on MS-DOS 6.22 and windows 3.1. I installed the DOS pc card service and the DOS driver of the sound card.
Here are my Autoexec.bat :
SET BLASTER=A220 I10 D1 T5
and Config.sys :
DEVICE=c:\DOS622\EMM386.EXE RAM HIGHSCAN X=CF00-CFFF (according to the Readme file, we have to reserve that address space for the sound card driver)
The sound card works perfectly on Windows. There is a PCDIAG and a PCDEMO dos utils on the driver floppy, the PCDIAG says all is good and the sound test works properly. On the PCDEMO, the test sound file starts but only for some milisec. I added the BLASTER environment variable and tried with several configurations. I tried to use the sound card with DOS games : Warcraft (the first one), JAZZ Jackrabbit, and Sid Meyer's Civilization (the first one). On Warcraft setup, there is a sound card autodetection, but it is unable to detect the sound card (tried as a sound blaster, sound blaster II, sound blaster 16, sound blaster pro, compatible sound blaster). None of those games are able to use the sound card. Any help is welcome 😀 Thanks.
