NT 4.0 and non-suppoerted soundcards

I have a Logitech Soundman Wave which  uses the Mediavision Jazz chipset and OPL3. NT won't see it as a soundblaster because It needs to run smwset.sys at startup. NT doesn't read the config.sys, so how can I load the device? I have Win95 drivers, but they won't help will they? Any help would be great.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can not use DOS or Win95 drivers. You must use NT drivers.
If there is no driver supplied with the card, try to get one in the internet or from logitech support.
NT does have several drivers built but does not autodetect your chipset. You have to manualy configure it. Therefore you need the exact name and number for the chipset.
If your chipset is not in the list, and not in the drivlib (on CD) you are lost.

I know all this. I need a work around, ie. some undocumented tweek to fake NT out. How do you load the smwset.sys device at start-up? This might help fake NT into thinking it is a SB Pro.

Nt will only work it with original nt-drivers if your manufacturer doesn't have those there's no hope to get the thing working .
Problem with NT is that is wasn't originaaly designed to work with soundcards.
Had same problem , got it fixed only with manufacturer driver for NT .
