Setup Instructions

Windows 95 should auto-detect the Audio Plus True 3200 Wave as a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Pro, if, and only if, the following conditions are met:

  • The APINIT.EXE driver is being loaded in the CONFIG.SYS.
  • The sound card settings are not conflicting with any other device in the system or driver in Windows 95.
  • You get sound from the sound card when using the DOS based testing program supplied with the sound card. (i.e. APTEST.EXE)
  • Any Windows 3.1 sound card drivers have been removed.

The previous conditions will be met if you follow the instructions to correctly install the software that was supplied with the sound card.

The CONFIG.SYS file should contain a line similar to:

DEVICE=C:\AP3200W\APINIT.EXE /F:SB /VD:1 /VA:220 /VI:7 /GD /MD /MA:330 /MI:9 /C:P /CA:340 /CD:3 /CI:10

Note the settings of the APINIT.EXE driver in your CONFIG.SYS, particularly:

  • /VI:(IRQ), where IRQ is the Interupt Request setting
  • /VD:(DMA), where DMA is the DMA (Direct Memory Access) setting.
  • /VA:(ADDRESS), where ADDRESS is the address of the sound blaster port.
