If your ESS ES1868-based card is silent after installing BeOS, don’t despair. You should be able to get the card working with the steps below.

  1. Download the AudioDrive drivers from BeBits.
  2. Go into Preferences | Devices and find the item “ISA PNP Devices”.
  3. Under that item you should find some ESS- related entries.
  4. Pop up the “Config” dialog for every item in this entry and disable (by selecting corresponding “Disable” item in configuration menu) “devices” which have no IRQ & DMA allocated. You should end up with one or two devices active.
  5. Install the drivers downloaded in step 1.
