Sound Blaster Live! initialization fails (Users)

Hi,

Can I ask you about emulation soundcard SB-live, I can`t initialize card
with sbinit.com when I use jemmex manager. UIDE is remove from config.sys
it works when I use memory managers from FreeDOS-1.
I do it on EDR-DOS-7.1.0.7

David

EDIT by rr: moved from category "Emulation", more descriptive subject

error message is about sbinit cannot initialize souncard ...
I think that refer first 4MB RAM, that sbinit cannot find memory ...

No necessarily. I also have a SB Live and use jemmex, and there is no problem. jemmex doesn't use that much extended memory for itself. You must NOT use jemm's MIN= option, however. It causes extended memory to be reserved statically.

Yes, works. DOSLFN must be remove then works with JEMMEX well :-)

Yes, there are few TSR/Drivers which consumes EMS/XMS which allocate from the beginning so it's necesarry to put sbemu driver before loading them. E.g. disk cache may cause this problem, but I wouldn't suspect DOSLFN. Anyway you had solved it, OK.
