I\'m using DirectX 7, Win98 Second Edition, the absolute latest Creative/Ensoniq driver, and I still get the same problems...
GS sees the MIDI function of my card, but not the audio outputs. No audio outputs are available. I tried reconfiguring, and it didn\'t find it. I uninstalled GS using the uninstall utility, then reinstalled. When I launched it, it told me that my last session ended ungracefully, and that I might consider reinstalling (?!)
Now, it still sees the MIDI in from the card, but not the audio outs. Is there some magic setting I\'m supposed to be changing that I\'ve totally missed?
Thanks for any input one could give. This program looks like it could really rock, if it\'ll just work.... <g>
You need the older Ensoniq driver, called apiwiz95.exe
The creative drivers completely and utterly do not work with any version of Giga, regardless of what Creative might tell you. I have had to tell so many people this, it bothers me, because the older driver DID work.
You\'ll have to do a search on the web for it. If you can\'t find it, try looking on Dell or Gateway\'s archive drivers pages, because that card is often an OEM card in mail order PC\'s.
Now this is interesting \'cause I have the same problem but with a Diamond MX300 card. It worked with the same drivers under Win98 but not under Win98SE. MIDI input works but no sound. I will try to reinstall the old Win98 to see if it helps.
I have given up on trying to get my Monster Sound MX300 card working with GS. I tried installing old Win98 but got the same problem there. I whipped out my ol\' AWE64 and it worked perfectly with GS. I just routed the output on the AWE to the Line in on the MX300.
Go into safe mode in windows then to your device manager make sure you do not have double drivers loaded. I came across this problem when I had the ensoniq. it also happend when I had the sb live. i then narrowed it down to double drivers being loaded. If you see double drivers for the sound card loaded in safe mode remove them all reboot then reinstall so only one driver is installed.
