    Yeah, I got Duke Nukem 3D working fully in DOS. Same with Carmageddon and GTA. Don't ask me how though, it was far too long ago to remember.

    Before you installt the card's drivers, remove one of your other cards, like a SCSI card or a modem - whatever. Then you can install the sound card and there will be no IRQ conflicts. Once there,...

    Try the European site if you get lost.

    I've heard it's easier to navigate than the American one.

    If it's anything like the card I used to have, then it'll be on a small white sticker on the back of the card or on a small white sticker on the back of the SBLive box.

    I used to have one and it was fine for me. It didn't have 4 speaker support, which is why I replaced it, but apart from that, I was happy with it.

    I think it was a 64V model.

    It depends what you use sound for. If it's games, then onboard sound is a no-go-area but if you're using it just to maybe listen to a CD while you're typing a Word document up then it's fine. ...

    Are they definitely bankrupt now? I thought someone was about to rescue them at the 11th hour.

    I would go for the Live in that case then because you're then going to get driver updates whereas...

    Apart from what montezuma said, there's not a lot you can say. There's either a setting that's incorrect, the cables have come loose or the card is dead.

    You will get sound out of them if that's what you mean. I'm not sure it will be "digital" but you could try contacting Diamond / Creative to find out.

    Probably not. As long your sound card can do 44kHz 16 bit stereo, then you won't notice any difference.
