Unable to access midi sounds
Posted on 1997-03-31
i am unable to hear midi files using the "mplayer.exe" application in win95. i can hear "wav" files just fine. i also cannot access the midi volume control using the volume icon.
if i go to start|settings|control panel|multimedia and click the "advanced" tab, under "midi devices and instruments" there is a line that reads "midi for internal OPL2/OPL3 FM synthesis". if i double-click THAT, on the "general tab", there is a line that reads "status: driver is enabled but inactive due to an unknown problem".
i have already uninstalled and then reinstalled the midi player as well as my sound driver and i still have the same problem.
any help would be appreciated.
the sound card is "aztech sound galaxy washington 16", i am running win95 on a packard bell pentium75 processor.
thanks in advance.
