Troubleshooting:
================

This appendix provides some tips and information for some of the
problems you might encounter with your ALS120 sound card either during
installation or normal use.

[Problems in DOS]

Problem: Cannot load IDE CD-ROM drive.
Cause: IDE port is not enabled. Check the config.sys file under
C: root directory and you should see "device=c:\a4sound
\cdsetup.sys /P:xxx" before loading your CD-ROM driver.( xxx
is the base port of the sound card ). The cdsetup.sys
enables the IDE port.
Solution: Run C:\A4SOUND\A4CONFIG.EXE again and select the CD-ROM
IDE. When you leave the a4config program, device=c:\a4sound
\cdsetup.sys /P:xxx will be added to config.sys. Make sure
that this line is added before loading the CD-ROM driver.
