No sound driver found

I am running Mandriva under VMWare and Windows XP but there is no sound driver found?

Thanks for your anticipated help.

Have you added an audio adapter to your VM? If so, it should (most likely) be a Creative Labs' SoundBlaster AudioPCI (ESS1371) device.

Hi Keith,

It's not clear to me what is the host OS and what is the guest OS of the virtual machine.

Yes, that's what HOST audio adapter will be mapped to the virtual audio adapter in the guest. The guest will see the device I posted above.

ok, I played around with the drivers in Harddrake and even though it said the installation was unsuccessful, after two tries BINGO. It now works.

Thanks for you help,

Keith
