I wonder if anybody could help with the following.
I am looking to buy a soundcard/cdrom combination to use under Linux as
well as dos/windows.
I have read the sound and CDROM HOWTO's, but neither have been much help
for the combination that I am interested in.
I am interested in the following:
An Orchid Soundwave 32, and a CD mounted off the sound card
The CD would be one of : Panasonic 563, Sony CD33A or Mitsumi(dbl spd)
The sound howto does not say anything about the Orchid Soundwave 32, and
the CD howto does not mention mounting a CD off such a card.
What I want to know is has/is anybody using this card under Linux, and
what problems have you encountered. Especially with regards to mounting
CD ROMS on the sound card.
(I have heard that there was a problem with soundblaster emulation under
Linux - the solution being to boot dos, and then perform a warm boot
Here in the UK the Orchid Soundwave 32 retails for a similar price to
a Soundblaster 16 Asp MCD, and offers wavetable, general midi, MPU 401,
and soundblaster compatibility, as well as being bundled with speakers,
a mic, and drivers for dos/windows. Anyway the Soundblaster ASP chip is
not supported by Linux.
I will be using the card for mainly playback purposes, so sampling is not
an issue (yet).
Additionally does anybody know if the Orchid Gamewave 32, and the Orchid
Soundwave 32 SCSI have the CD interfaces. Or recommendations for any
other Soundcard / CDROM combo (apart from Soundblaster)
Also (sorry about this posting rambling) does anybody know about the
differing levels of support of the various CD's mentioned (above),
Eg Panasonic 563 / SonyCD33A / Mitsumi CRMC
with regards to photo CD, development of drivers etc ...
I don't mind if you respond by mail or to this newsgroup, and am willing
to post a synopsis of any mail I get.
