Help to Identify Aztech ISA Sound Card

Postby GabrielKnight123 » 2017-9-07 @ 08:16

Hi all I need some help please to identify an Aztech ISA sound card that has a telephone connection on the back plate, when I looked at the Vogons Driver Library for Aztech I see there are many types and I also need help to tell me which driver should be used with it, I can see it has an OPL3 dedicated chip "YMF262-M" and im wondering if this card is intelligent type of Midi capable instead of the UART because of the extra PCB board mounted in the middle of the sound card. I cant see any logo or name on the PCB but in the pictures below you can see all the chips and layout of the card. The album with 7 pictures are here:

Are these cards any good to use as im trying to get rid of the pops in audio im getting from the soundblaster cards i have tried.

Most Azctech cards had the FCC ID printed somewhere on the PCB (starting with "I38").
However, it would appear that the combo sound/modem (audio telephony) cards do not have an FCC ID printed on the PCB, so you will have to look at the chipset to determine which set of sound card drivers will work with this card (in this case, it has the AZT 2316-S chipset)

This chipset was also used by two other Aztech cards, namely I38-MMSN824 & I38-MMSN850 (both of these were usually sold as part of a multimedia kit).
I've attached the drivers for both models - either one should work.

I've also attached the drivers for two of the Aztech Audio Telephony sound cards (MM AT-3200 & MM AT-3260) but, I'm not sure whether these will work with your model (you can perhaps try these out and see if it picks up the sound card & modem).
If you try to install the drivers (or run the diagnostic utility), it will normally tell you if the particular model doesn't match the driver set.

Thanks very much for the info and drivers I will be trying them out in the next couple of days, do you know what the small PCB is that is attached to the main board in the middle of the sound card? I have looked all over the card for any info about who made it or an FCC ID but it seems there are none but on the bottom of the card is "SRS 3-D stereo" I bet this only works in windows but would be good if it does in dos. Would the standard SET BLASTER variables and SET SOUND work for a boot disk im not sure what to set as soundblaster type T6 or T4 but I'll play around with the settings to see if these work.

That forms part of the "modem" part of the sound card (you will notice the Rockwell chipset) - I'm not sure of its exact function (can't make out any further detail).

The 3-D stereo effect should work under DOS as well - on certain models, it can be toggled via the software based mixer utility.

Yes, it should. You would normally configure the sound card when installing it the first time. Whatever your settings are, you would then copy those onto your Boot disk and specify the same values in your Autoexec.bat file (not sure why you would want a boot disk). On most of these models, the settings are then stored in EEPROM.
All Aztech sound cards based on the AZT-2316 chipset supports the Sound Blaster Pro II - you would therefore specify type T4 as part of your SET BLASTER statement in your Autoexec.bat file.

Ok I just used the m16abo two floppy disk files to install it and it worked well but this card had lots of noise on Gabriel Knight 1 and for some reason the autoexec.bat settings it used when installing from win98se it uses some other word that I cant remember right now instead of SET BLASTER and Gabriel Knight will not load because of this unless you use the standard SET BLASTER instead of what it installs, I was able to get Midi to work with my SC55 but for the voice in GK1 it was noisy and popping so it is now going to be a nice edition to my wall of old hardware - which is me actually putting old cards on my wall instead of posters for some reason.

Refer this old post of mine as it might help with the noise you are experiencing in some games - viewtopic.php?f=46&t=36595&p=402702&hilit=Sound+galaxy+mono+playback#p402702

It seems the FCC ID: I38-SGBX21 is "Aztech SC100 Sound FX Basic" and has volume wheel (sorry for weak pictures, these not made by me, I have helped a seller to identify it).

This is just a rebranded Sound Galaxy BXII (very close to a Sound Blaster 2.0).
The label looks very similar to what Reveal stuck on later models of the Sound Galaxy series (like the SC 300 & SC 400).

There is no driver for that card in the archive. I tried a few but it did not work.

Might take a few revisions of this post, but I should have drivers for that card.. me being a driver hoarder and all.

If something doesn't work let me know.

And here is a driver set that was labeled with your card's model number. I had to break it apart because it went over the 2MB limit.

P16IIB did not work.
The file from cyclone3d works (except s3d.exe utility).
There is no installation disk for dos though, only some update utility that assumes you already have files installed in c:\sound144
So I had to manually copy the files and also copy eeprom.sys file from another driver.

here is some documentation on this sound card: http://j12345.users1.50megs.com/menu/so ... an.asp.htm

Added another to the bottom of the post above.

Also found some more that are indicated to be for Washington. Put them up on my Google Drive. They all have the name P16IIB in the name, but there are 3 different sets.
Also added some more that are just listed as being for 2316.

Drivers for the SOUND144AM can be found on various Packard Bell Master CDs. Hardware resources are soft configured by a DOS program. Windows 9x comes with the drivers and will auto detect the card.

Downloaded a PB Master CD and it had the SOUND144AM folder on it.

Uploaded it to my google drive. Link is in my previous post. Note: If you need that driver and the link no longer works, it means I moved it to a web host. PM me if this is the case.
