3-Com NIC and SoundBlaster AWE64
Posted on 1998-11-19
I have installed a 3-Com NIC in myc computer and all works well except for one thing - All my Wavefiles that play gets "choppy". They play for 10th of a second, gets quiet for a second or two and then plays for a 0th of a second again - and so on..
A IRC/DMA/Adress fault I thought at first, but surprisingly the two devices uses completely different sets of IRQ/DMA/Adress range...
As soon as I remove either the 3-com NIC or the AWE64 there is no problem any more.. I have tried removing both of the devices and installing them again in several different ways, but as soon as the NIC is installed the choppy waves is there again... (CD-Music and MIDI works allright).
I have tried both the NIC and the AWE 64 on other computers with win-95 and they work ok..
When emailing both Creative Labs and 3-Com I get a message from 3-Com that is is an IRC problem although I can see that there isn't any..
I never got a reply from Creative.. :-(
