My system is win 98, amd k6-2 w/3dnow. I have a Creative CD5220-f 0225 CD-Rom. I ran Belarc Advisor and for multimedia get "none detected". My cd-rom works fine on reading disks etc., but I can not play music- no sound from the speakers. Not only that but I still have the sound effects on for windows- chimes etc...., no noise. I have tried to load sound blaster (floppy) and the audio devices from the win 98 disk and my driver disk that I received with the computer. No avail, the wizard says that there is no info on my hardware on the disks. I have a slew of drivers and none of them seem to work. I still get the error "no pci mutimedia device installed" in the device manager. HELP Please

When you try to add new hardware, are you digging down into the folders on the cdrom that came with the soundcard or just pointing it to the cdrom drive and clicking ok? You'll more than likely need to direct it further into the cd.....it's looking for an .inf file more than likely.

I did try to click on down into the cd for the .inf files, when that did not work I even tried typing the path and file by hand. It still tells me that there are no files that pertain to my hardware.

And the cord and all should be fine, no apparent loose connections and the problem arose during the reloading of my software after formatting my hard drive. No sound from the speakers windows or otherwise. I said I can download from the cd but not play music. My windows sounds are on but I can not hear them.

It could be correct. What sound card do you have and what does the cd disk say on top?

Also, post a listing for your IRQs....start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok...go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

Before I could get back online I tried a few things and finally found the correct driver. My CD had 2 fm .inf files, one was wrong I tried it days ago, the second one was the correct one. I now have sound and all is well in the tech world. Thanx for the help!

Problem resolved
