Strangley enough I had th same problem....

I solved it by accident, but it should work for you.  I need to update my ESS 1868 sound card so I went to ESStech and downloaded the drivers.

One night while rebooting (had a few beers, and was just pottering around), got the Wave file error (yet again).. desided to see if I could find one, so I started to brose my HDD anyway I found under the NT3.51 drivers DIR of my New ESS drivers , it found something it liked, loaded under mulitmedia, and the problem has not resurfaced.....

try getting the latest sound drivers for you sond card and see if it does the same... Now I got this problem after I installed OSR2.5C (the little known seceret upgrade to WIN95)

Now don't ask me why, but it also had somethng to do with my new voice/fax/modem..... so naturally this is where I had been looking for a fix - but the 3.51 sound driver did the trick.

this solved my error.... same with you... it is really anoning isn't it !!!

Did you try to find the latest drivers for your sound card?

Check this page

http://www.conitech.com/windows/ci.asp?n=251

Also check control panel/system for any hardware conflicts. Check that AWE hardware settings match those in control panel/system

Please send more details in case this does not help you.

mseow,
Do you have a voice/fax modem installed?
If so, I think that wave-device error is the result of the way your modem is configured.
That digiphone setup probably made changes, so I think you should try to re-install your modem driver.

On the mulicolored CD , there should be a driver for this device.  It may require a little hunting, but I am assured it is there.

Hi Ralph - you are most certainly right, however, the only way around it is to install a "lesser" driver, which defeats the purpose.  This is a voice/fax modem problem, I am sure.  I however did not have this error until I upgraded to  OSR2.5C.  but the 3.51 driver I found did the trick.

OK, when did the error start?  In Win95 or in Win98?
Has your current hardware setup ever worked properly, without the error before?

Well I hope you will answer Ralphs Q. That would help us.

In the meantime..can you completely remove your modem entries from control panel/system
If you're familiar with registry I would suggest to go search registry for modem string and delete it too..
Try installing AWE drivers again after you've done that..

That will show us wether modem drivers were the problem.

Dear Ralph,the error started in win95 and there was no problem before this.I am not good with registry.More info: I am using the US Robotic v.everything modem for my Winfax Pro. and cable modem for my internet.Except for the irritating notice during startup everything works.There was not much difference during startup for win98, about the same speed as win95 osr2b.

Try this:
Click Start button, select Run, type SYSEDIT on the line, and click OK.
Check your system.ini & win.ini files for lines containing load= or run=.
You may find a reference to the offending file there.
Edit by inserting a ; (semi-colon) at the beginning of the line to diable it temporarily.  You reverse this action by removing the semi-colon later.
Reboot to see if that corrects the problem.

I suggest to go to control panel /system and remove all modem references. Of course you should backup your registry first..

You can simply copy system.dat & user.dat files to safe place. Bud usually suggests using WRP: "WRPV3.ZIP is the Best and easiest Backup/Restore I've Seen.
Go To: http://www.webdev.net/orca/system.html Search WRP"

After you remooved all traces of your modem from system restart windows and see if this error message appears again.

If it is gone your modem wave device caused this error message. So you'll need to find new driver for your modem..

Look at www.conitech.com or www.windrivers.com for latest USR drivers..

However I think problem must be in AWE.. modem wave device should not have full duplex features..

Let's try this first..

If problem still persists try doing the same with AWE and see what happens..

Regards,

Damir
