Default Need a truly DOS compatible sound card.

And I mean true compatibility. I don't want any emulation crap. I've got a SBLive but it's useless to get the emulation to work under Windows 98SE. Any suggestions on which I should purchase?



I've been looking at the Aopen AW840, but I don't know if it's DOS legacy support is emulation or not. I can grab the Aopen card for 12 bucks.


Also for those interested. I'm looking to make a Pentium 233/128MB RAM a Windows/DOS box so I can play my old DOS games again. That being the reason why I need such an old sound card. As far as I see it, the new games are great for visuals and such, but the old legacy DOS games are still so much fun and seem to have what the new games are missing.

Sounds good... How much do you want for it and do you have the original drivers? Seems creative doesn't have DOS drivers any longer.

DOS drivers exist, but only for the ISA cards. The best DOS sound card is the SoundBlaster 16 ISA, or possibly the Sound Blaster 32awe or 64awe but I know very little about those

I believe the Acoustic Edge has real DOS drivers. I'm not entirely sure.

Prett much any ISA sound card is fully DOS compatible, i too may have to build a **** system. Most DOS games won't even pick PCI sound cards up

Some dude at school just gave me some A/V ISA card if anyone is interested...
It's from Winnov L.P.
Chip says 401 on it (model?).

It has speaker, mic, line, vid, mxc, and s-vid inputs (or are they outputs?).

Looks interesting, I think I might dig up my old mobo/cpu that's in the closet just to play with it...
