Uploader Notes

Self-extracting archive for AudioDrive sound card models ES488, 688, 888, 1488, 1688, 1788, 1888, 1868, 1878. Includes drivers, DOS utility and AudioRack software.

AudioRack software consists of a CD player, MIDI player, wavesound player/recorder and volume controls.

The recording capability of my ES1868 Plug and Play AudioDrive sound card did not worked with the driver included with Windows 98, so I had to install this driver's version (which came in a floppy disk with my system's sound card) in order to record wavesounds properly.

"I was trying to find a driver with a chip that was not listed but close to the number of the chip for this driver. Windows XP or 98SE did not recognise this driver. I cannot recomend this driver. Not because it is a bad driver, but the wrong one."

"I'm sure they probably work for the SIS graphics card, but the link that led to these drivers is supposed to be for the ESS488 sound card. I'd sure like to have the drivers that are listed for this link."
