PC Compatibility Card - sound problems
Posted on 1998-10-11
I'm running an Apple Pentium 166 Dos card in my PM 8600/250. It runs flawlessly, with one notable problem - no sound on the PC side.
I've gone through the manuals, and troubleshooted everything, and nothing seems to work. BTW, I'm running 8.1 on the Mac side, and Windows 98 on the other...
Here's the weird part - tonight I was playing an audio CD on the Mac side. When I went to the PC side, I was able to achieve sound! And it *only* worked while the CD was playing (again, from the Mac side). It also should be noted that the sound was kind of gritty - not exactly how it should have been, but existent nonetheless...
Anyone familiar w/ running this card in the Mac - I've already checked the cables running from the CD ROM drive to the PC card, and from the card to the sound jack on the motherboard. Is there something else I can/should do?
I've also checked the sound setup on both sides - the Mac side has "sound enabled" in the PC Setup control panel, and according to the PC side, the Sound Blaster drivers have loaded and it thinks it has sound.
