Good day

ahm ive got some problem here last week i found out that my sound card is somewhat broken

so i replaced it with this sound card(my very old one)

the problem is? i dont know the manufacturer of the sound card cause its a very long time ago!

and at that time im not aware of it

i dont even know what is the model or the compatible drivers for it


this is the only INFORMATION written on th sound card

FCC REG NO.:F17M501B007
REN:AC0.1B DC 0.1 USOC:RJ11C

thats the only clue i got

and i dont want to waste this sound card and throw it away cause i know its working

The numbers quoted belong to a dial-up modem - a REN (Ringer Equivalence Number) and line connection socket (RJ11C).

If it does also have a soundcard section combined with the modem, they were an awful product. I'd suggest not even trying to use that.

Sorry for not getting back to you, have you been able to download and run the SIW program? If it can ID the card, we'll have a better idea if it's worth trying. The combo cards could be difficult to get to operate well, and drivers may not be available for current operating systems.

Considering that quite decent sound cards are now available at low cost, it could be a difficult way to save a small amount.

Not sure if Platypus used this to do the search. You can find out through the FCC number

I think fagong has only listed the FCC Registration, not the FCC ID number for the device.

http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/help.html

The reg number doesn't appear in the Part 68 database, so that suggests the FCC records aren't going to be able to help.

Also, interestingly, a Google search on the number finds only this topic...
