You should have received a Sony installation diskette which contains a
setup routine. The routine creates a \DEV directory on your boot drive
and places the Sony driver, SLCD.SYS, and Microsoft's CD-ROM extensions,
MSCDEX.EXE in it. The setup routine will also create modified
autoexec.bat and config.sys files for you by adding the lines,
\DEV\MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 to the former and DEVICE=\DEV\SLCD.SYS
/D:MSCD001 /B:340 /M:P /K /C to the latter. The switch settings selected
by the setup routine may not be correct; you can check them by using the
SoundBlaster User's Guide.

The sound card also came with a driver. It's an old one, intended for
use with the CDU-31; it drives the CDU-33, but only at single speed.
However, it also uses significantly less memory than the Sony driver.
I've arranged my config.sys file to allow me to choose which of the two
drivers to use. If you don't have MS-DOS 6, it may be worth having
several config files; one using the Sony driver, one using the sound
card's driver, and one with no driver at all. Copy the desired file
to config.sys and reboot the computer.

More info. Lots more info. I have this exact setup, and it works. I can
help, but I need a HELL of a lot more info.
Is the jumper set up properly on the SB? Must be set to sony. It does NOT
come that way, so if you never changed the jumpers, problem solved.
What memory addresses are you using? When it comes to that, ignore the
CDROM manual. You are not using the card that came with it, so nothing
there will apply. Use whatever the SB manual tells you.
