SCSI Soundcard
« on: January 06, 2003, 12:04:25 PM »
 Does anyone know of a way to incorporate a SB16 SCSI sound card with MPXPLAY? I get great sound off the hard disk, but no sound from the CD. I can get sound off the CD if I use the Adaptec CDPLAYER program that comes with the cards drivers. Any ideas? (other than switching sound cards).

Tried it on my system at home.  Booted into DOS using real mode scsi card drivers.  The hardware I used was as follows:
Sound Blaster AWE64
Tekram DC390U SCSI Card
Plextor 40X SCSI cdrom

When trying to play audio off of an audio cd with MPXPlay, I couldn't get it to work either.  All I got was a bunch of noise.

I was able to get it work, though, using FreeCDP:

I think we may be running into a limitation in MPXPlay itself.

Might wanna look into using a separate app for playing audio cd's, then come up with a way to switch between the two.

The following page links to a number of DOS-Based sound programs:

Hope this helps.
