I have a SB32 PnP from 1996. It's a very big audio card: it has got 2 simm-slots for the MIDI. Anyway, Windows 98SE detects it as a Sound Blaster 16 Plug and Play, but detects also a voice like "SB AWE32 effects". Shoul I use it as a 32-PnP Sound card?

Well you could try that or download a driver off the net.

the easiest thing i can think of is either get an updated driver from the internet or just use what works for you.

If you still haven't gone anywhere, unplug the PC and make sure the card is properly seated. Or even move it to a different slot. Bad slots happen.... Wink

A 1996 card will be in the Win98 CD driver (CAB) files. Delete the card from "Control Panel\System\Device Manager\Sound...." Then go to "Control Panel\Add Hardware". Try a redetect and if it still says a SB 16, back up and install from the list of devices. The SB 32 should be listed. Select the right device and go. Optionally there maybe a manually installable driver on the Win98 CD in "Drivers\Audio\Creative..." (or ...\Sound Blaster"?) folder.

Of course a newer driver should be online.
