HELP: Sound Blaster 16 PCI not working :(

I just bought a Sound Blaster 16 PCI off eBay. I used Windows 98SE and boot into native DOS mode.

When I try to run Creative SB16 drivers, it keeps on saying that it's detected am in Windows 95 mode.


Anyway, I manage to get "already-installed" drivers from:


I run the C:\dosdrv\sbcfg.exe and it displays my settings 220, IRQ5, DMA1, DMA7 (16bit).

When I set up Duke Nukem 3D with these settings, it fails for digital sound, but I got music working. It says DMA conflicts.

Anyway got any ideas why I can't get sound working?

Did you set the DMA correctly? It should match with BLASTER string in AUTOEXEC.BAT 8)
