OS/2 Warp 4 and win-os2 sound

I have a soundblaster 16 sound card which I installed in DOS and win-os2 using the drivers which came with the card.
      After a fresh bootup and while starting my first win-os2 session I would get an error message that my soundblaster configuration is at fault and that my soundblaster wave and midi driver was not working.Advice is then given to reconfigure in control panel.However, on shutting down and restarting the session I get no error messages and my win-os2 sound works okay.
      What could be the problem?
NB.I have checked my os/2 config.sys and hardware manager and compared the IRQ and DMA settings with that of the win-os2 sytem.ini file and also autoexec.bat but there are no conflicts.DOS sound is fine.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE
Base Address = 220
irq = 5
lowDMA = 1
highDMA = 5
MIDIport = 330

1)
in your autoexec.bat put the line:
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330 T6

2)
in your winos2 system.ini check this part:

[sndblst.drv]
PnpFlag=0
MIDIPort=330
HDmaChannel=5
DmaChannel=1
Int=5
Port=220

Good luck

try to add this line in your autoexec.bat
[path to sbfiles\]sndinit /b

and check that this line is in your os/2 config.sys

DEVICE=D:\MMOS2\SB16D2.SYS /C:1 /D:1 /H:5 /I:5 /A:220 /M:330 /N:SBAUD1$ /Q /P
DEVICE=D:\MMOS2\AUDIOVDD.SYS SBAUD1$

/c = cardnumber
/d = lowdma
/h = highdma
/i = IRQ
/a = base address
/m = midiport
/d = drivername
/q = quiet mode,
     for checking change this to /v
/p = Initialize PNP mode !!

check that those settings are identical to your "set blaster=..." (autoexec.bat) and the winos2 "system.ini" settings

They are identical.The only thing left to do was to add your statement '[path to sbfiles\]sndinit /b' to my autoexec.bat file which was not accepted on opening a session.
      Anymore ideas? You have reached now where I am stuck and cannot think of what else to do.
      In order to install the sound card in DOS, I had to install the ISA plug and play configuration manager in a DOS session. Could this be the source of the problem?
