The right Native DS1 WDM driver can be difficult to locate on the manufacturer's website. Even if you are experienced at finding, downloading, and manually updating Native DS1 WDM drivers, the process can still be very time consuming and extremely irritating. Installing the wrong driver will prevent the Windows from starting at all or worse, lead to absolute failure.
If you could not find the exact driver for your hardware device or you aren't sure which driver is right one, we have a program that will detect your hardware specifications and identify the correct driver for your needs. Please click here to download.
Once you have downloaded your new driver, you'll need to install it. In Windows, use a built-in utility called Device Manager, which allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.
I recently \"saved\" Clevo 2850 laptop from my workplace (not used after 2007), which have that soundchip integrated. It's original hdd (Win 98 installed) was extremely slow, bad condition. So I took other hdd (Win ME installed) from my Compaq Armada 7800 for testing this Clevo. Win ME suggest \"yamaha ds1 native audio driver\" at the startup, so I installed it. Sounds were working, but when I look Control panel, Sounds&Multimedia, Midi playback did not have DS-XG synth option, only MS GS synth, Yamaha opl3-synth, Yamaha MPU401. Then I tried instal this driver \"WDM Driver Win 98SE/Me/2000 DirectX8 works with WDM driver (v. 5.12.01.2228)\" from here , but after restart pc, I have no sound at all and speaker image in the downright corner disappeared. At some point \"Windows found new device, PCI Multimedia Audio Device\" I tried instal that, but it did not found on the Win ME cd. I uninstalled that \"WDM...\" driver and tried this older one \"Win 95/98/Mev. 4.07.1040 (DirectX7 Certified)\" from the same page, it did not help. Any suggestion what to do
Those page links not working For example, I tried download this SONY YMF744B_512012229.exe Win98/2K WDM, which is a little bit newer than one I tried before. I assume that 2K drivers would work in Win ME. I also found this page -drivers.com/companies/1165.htm , but download links not working either. 153554b96e
