ESS 1879 Soundcard problem



New Member
When I set high DMA for my sound card (ESS 1879) to 5, I get scratchy sound.
I tried to change to higher 16 bit DMA but 5 is the only available ...
If I change it to 1 or 3, it works fine.
But I heard that if I make both low and high DMA to 8 bit then it wouldn't a
16 bit sound card anymore ... Is it true?
I didn't have this problem when I bought this about a month ago..
Anyone else got this problem?
Please help!!

Whenever your sound card is 16bit or not has nothing to do with whenever it's using high or low DMA.

Just use the low DMA's.
