When you try to play a MIDI file do you get an error, or does the file *appear* to play but you get no sound?

Have you tried installing the original 3D Sound Pro drivers?  Not all updates you download will work.

Sounds like you might be trying to install a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver for your soundcard--WDM isn't supported under Windows 95. I'd try and download a driver which specifically says it's for Windows 95 and try that.
