I have a sound card that is marked (Yamaha 3D Sound card).This card has a Yamaha chip
#VMF719B-S Also, the FCC ID.# is NCXY510. The only other possible id. is BANNSAN BS-1 painted on the front of the card,and two paper stickers on the back. One says (IGJART made in china)and the other has only (MS719 712586858).Now to the problems---None of the generic drivers on Yamaha's download site will let this card work like it should,Yamaha says they did not manufacture this card,and the FCC ID# does not return any info.

i tried a search for vmf719b-s nothing came up was that a typo and should read ymf719b-s?

i know you said you tried the generics from yamaha site ,but did you try the opl3-sax drivers for chipsets ymf701, 711 ,718 ,and 719 for windows 3.x the file is named 31v2329i.exe. if you interested you can find it at

hope this is helpful

To Vera-- please excuse the typo-- First let me say thank you for the reply. And yes the driver that you suggested has been tried. With this driver, the sound comes out garbled,and totally unacceptable.-- I did ask Yamaha to provide me with a list of possible companys that they sold this chip to,and the only one that I havent been able to contact is Dynatec. Will keep trying in that direction. Thanks agin-- Charles Wilson

hi again
is it possible the sound card is seated to close to the video card? that can sometimes cause problems.sometimes moving the soundcard to a slot furthest away from your video card can help.good luck

Sorry about the time lag of this answer---(Grankid fried the motherboard in my computer,and I'm just now getting this new unit I built up and running. Guess I'll have to quit leaving the case open,or take up all the screwdrivers!) I never did find the correct driver for the sound card. The project just had to settle for ASL card.
Thanks For the attempt anyway, C.W.
