The "CD Audio" plugs above are a set of 4x4 pin headers. I believe they all have the same pinout and you can plug your CD-ROM drive's audio output into any of them with the same results.

Supposedly this card works under Windows 95. I have no idea whether or not this is true, and if it involves reusing Windows 3.1x drivers or not. I have no idea where any drivers for the card are and would appreciate being directed to them if they still exist. Please send an e-mail message to if you have information on this.

Optional Sound Extension Board

Runs two headphone plugs, one microphone plug, and a volume control to the system's front for easy access.

Thanks to David L. Beem for providing this and the needed bezel. I need to find the interconnect cable for this card so I can use it completely.
