Sound card driver problem
Dear Socalgal/ MntSnow,
Please help me out with this one !!!
I am using an ASUS CUV4X motherboard(PentiumIII/733MHz)with a Frontech PCI sound card running on the Yamaha S-YXG50 software driver. I am able to get audio out but when I enter the Sound recorder option in the Programs list (Win95), I am unable to make any recording although I am able to hear it on the speakers. The recording graph does not indicate the sound amplitude characteristics. Due to this I am also unable to use internet phone software. I get the message my sound card is unable t osend and receive audio simultaneously and that another application is using the sound card, although I am not running any other app.The message also says that the sound card is not a full duplex type , but the manufacturer's spec says it is ! Help me please. Does Windows Sound Recorder capture this resource or something ? The most frustrating part is that I can connect to the phone on the Internet, can hear the other side's voice but am unable to speak to them.
While I have not worked with the CUV4X motherboard I don't have an answer for you off the top of my head but to start off have you checked to see if there is a newer driver avaliable for your soundcard other than the one that came shipped with it? Have you double checked to see if your having any conflicts with any of the sound card properties in the device manager? both IRQ and Mem addresses?
Had a simular prob with a sound card using roger wilco.They have FAQ on there web site(not sure of the adress ) with sound cards that have problems and suggest in some cases workarounds and drivers which may fix it.another suggestion is to get a real cheap 16 bit isa sound card use your main card for playback and cheapie for recording (makes for clearer faster vioce tranfers over the net in most cases)
anyway hope this helps
The motherboard itself came with a set of drivers for audio, which incidentally were for the same type of card. I installed them and found no improvement. As for IRQ clashes, the device manager shows none and says that the device is working and is in use. I have tried with the driver that came with the sound card, too, but to no avail.
As Wozza mentions, I'll try with my older 16-bit ISA card, since I have one slot on the mobo. If nothing works, then maybe I'll have to re install the OS and try. But please tell me if there are any web sites that might contain relevant info.
