    Sound Blaster 16 CT2840 drivers
    « on: September 26, 2017, 03:26:05 PM »
    Does anybody know which drivers are the correct ones for the Sound Blaster 16 CT2840 ISA card?  I just bought one on eBay.  I'm looking for the full set.  I cannot find the driver disks online.

    The CT2840 is an OEM SB 16 Value, or CT2770. It probably wouldn't have had it's own separate driver set since it was not sold separately at retail.

    You can find some Driver Disks Here The closest set would likely be the "Sound Blaster 16 Value Edition Drivers & Applications disk set (revision 1) " listed there.

      Thanks.  I might need to use those to create new floppies.

      How difficult is it to find the original floppy disks?

      I doubt physical examples of the 2770's Driver Diskettes are going to be easy to come by- It's mostly AWE64 and the Original Sound Blaster that you can find more easily. I don't even know if the "Value" card driver diskettes would even externally identify that they were for the SB 16 *Value* rather than the SB16, other than being included in the box. (And complete-in-box or New-Old-Stock just to get the floppies would be pretty crazy!)

      Yes the contents of the floppy can be extracted via a program like WinImage and burned to a CD instead, if the system the sound card is being installed in has a CD-ROM drive, of course.
