What is probably happening is that Creative Labs uses either AC97
standard mixers or private ones (unfortunetly the card keeps the SB16 or
Vibra brand name). Check your card and look for a small chip (like
'CT-1297') or any other propritary mixer. If this is the case, trash
your card. This thing is not supported.
dude, not to be rude but you're smoking seriously bad crack.
firstly, the vibra16x is isa and predates ac97. secondly, all of the cards
i'm aware of that have a codec seperate from the controller chips are ac97
with the exception of two very rare ones which will be supported if anyone
ever contributes a card for development.
