I have a Creative Sound Blaster AudioPCI (WDM) soundcard which works fine except when I try to get the sound going on older games. During setup I get messages along the lines of "cannot detect port or FM chip" I think it's something to do with the Legacy Audio Drivers. I have updated the drivers a few times but no luck.............?

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
GullMaster.
