These drivers provide 33.6Kbps data capability and Direct Sound 3 compatibility.

Supported Machine Types:
2134, 2144, 2168, 2176
These are the identical driver files as the six downloadable 20D files released in September, 1997 (with all the same bugs), this unified SETUP.EXE simply allows for less chance of user error by simplifying the install.
These drivers were designed for Microsoft Windows 95, and as such are not compatible with Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows NT, Windows 98, or IBM OS/2.
IBM and DON5408 both STRONGLY recommend that you print, and read thoroughly the included README.TXT file before attempting to install these drivers.
As with any installation of new or updated software, it is recommended that you backup any critical system data before starting this installation in case anything should go wrong.
These drivers will NOT work on the following systems 2159-xxx, 2176-C6V, 2176-9R2, 2176-C6Z, and 2176-9R1 because they do not have an Mwave Media Card.
These drivers were designed for Microsoft Windows 95, and as such are not compatible with Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows NT, or IBM OS/2.
You MUST download and install the latest versions of "Aptiva AudioStation" and the "Aptiva Communications Center" after installing this update, as those applications will no longer work properly with these drivers. For links to both of these updates CLICK HERE.
If you would rather work with these files individually and not use this install package, for links to the original six files CLICK HERE
