SoundBlaster 16 does not work properly under NT
Posted on 1998-05-07
I just recently installed Windows NT 4.0 on my machine and my sound blaster 16 (Creative Labs) is not working properly. The sound card will only play Windows sound files, such as WAVs, MIDI, Direct X, etc. It won't play Real Audio, MP3's, VIVO, large WAV files, or any MME device. I don't think this is related to the software because at one point I had it working(by changing the I/O Port) but then I had to reinstall Win NT. I also updated my bios could that be related?
So far I have tried every I/O Port, installed the newest drivers, reinstalled all of the newest software, and called Tech. Support.
When I run RealPlayer Plus 5.0, for example, the status bar does not move and the program does nothing. On the volume control, there seems to be something barely playing because the WAV balance indicator lightgoes up to the first or second light.
Please I any help will be greatly appreciated. (I've been trying to fix this for the past 2 weeks)
