ISA is a very old technology and cards usually require switches or links to be set to avoid conflicts with other cards. ISA is not plug-n-play like PCI or PCI-e.
The software talks to an ISA card by knowing parameters such as IRQ number, DMA number, address range. These values may be permanently set on some cards, while others allow changing via the DIL switches or jumper links. To get two ISA cards working in one PC, the two cards need to use their own IRQ, DMA & address ranges. Make sure there are no conflicts of settings on the sound card and the tape drive card.
Try changing the settings on one of the cards. The tape drive may be the easiest for this. The tape drive is probably connected via a ISA to SCSI interface card. This should have DIP switches or Links to allow the above settings to be changed.

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer


This is an older 16-BIT ISA interfaced Sound Card. Try this one as a replacement.

This will function as a cheap replacement that should run in your system.

On linux centos it doesn work


The CT4170 SoundBlaster "Vibra" cards are old 16-bit ISA PnP cards, and were not detected at install by Linux kernels 2.16.15-27. You need to get the "isapnptools" package from the Fedora or CentOS sites, and do the following:
2. Install isapnptools using dpkg -i path-to-downloaded file .
3. Create and edit file /etc/isapnp.conf and put the following contents in it:
(READPORT 0x0273)
(ISOLATE PRESERVE)
(IDENTIFY *)
(VERBOSITY 2)
(CONFLICT (IO FATAL)(IRQ FATAL)(DMA FATAL)(MEM FATAL)) # or WARNING (CONFIGURE CTL00f4/-1 (LD 0
(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))
(DMA 0 (CHANNEL 0))
(DMA 1 (CHANNEL 1))
(IO 0 (SIZE 16) (BASE 0x0240))
(IO 1 (SIZE 2) (BASE 0x0300))
(IO 2 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0388))
(NAME "CTL00f4/-1[0]{Audio }")
(ACT Y)
))
(WAITFORKEY)
4. Run "isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf". If it reports errors, you must change configuration above (it is suited to my setup). Try "pnpdump -c" and put its output in /etc/isapnp.conf file. If it does not help, you must find the correct configuration manually, for example change port to 0x220. For full list of possible values run pnpdump. Note that if you change the configuration, you must change options for modprobe below.
5. Create and edit file /etc/modprobe.d/sbvibra and put the following options in it:
alias snd-card-0 snd_sb16
options snd_sb16 port=0x240 irq=5 dma8=0 dma16=1 isapnp=0
6. Run "update-modules"
7. Run "modprobe snd-card-0". If it works OK (check if "ls -l /dev/dsp" shows that file is present), perform the steps below to make setup permanent:
8. Append following line to /etc/modules:
snd-card-0
8. Go to system configuration (in GUI) and choose "Services". Enable "isapnp" service and tick option to start it at boot.
Hope this helps :)

I have a Encore 5.1 Sound card and have installed it. My problem is that I don't get a normal sound input when I bring in the output of my cassette player into any of three ports I have in my pc, front,...


When you install the sound card drivers, they disable ALL motherboard sound functions, and enable them on the sound card, meaning you can do the same things, with better quality, you just need to connect everything to the soundcard or it won't work. SO then you cannot connect any sound to the front of the computer anymore, but a soundcard should have plenty of connections on the back side of the PC.

From what I understood from your story, you switched cassette players AND installed a sound card. If I were you I'd first install the sound card drivers, then try to play audio with the old cassette player, and see wether that works. If it does, your new cassette player has another (if at all) output than the old one. Then you'll just have to use the old one. If it does not work, your soundcard is the problem, which seems a bit odd. Soundcards are usually meant to do more than on-board sound, not less. I'd contact your manufacturer and ask wether it's normal this doesn't work, or that the card's broken.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Compatible Sound card


I would say that just about any low profile PCI sound card would work. As I asked before which one you had, would depend on the type of sound card you will need.

How to use ISA Slot in PCI Slot


There is an adapter available if you look on computer sites for product purchases, try to google it as there or companies than make such items, might be harder to find as PCI and ISA are older connectors and even AGP is begin phased out an PCI express is the lading connector. Google ISA to PCI adapter and see what you can get your compangies to pruchases from. Your local computer hardware shop might have it call first and ask before driving out there, If you find nothing try calling Tigerdirect as they might have older stock, you never know, If to no avail you will have to try and locate an older Motherboard with the two conncectors on it and run that if possible, or find this certain ISA card you're talking about in PCI. Good luck! :)
