Sound Source Driver for Windows 3.1 and Multimedia Windows
SNDSRC.DRV is a Windows WAVE driver. It requires either:
1) Windows 3.1 or
2) Windows 3.0 with Multimedia Extensions.
This driver works well in Standard mode with nearly any computer and
in Enhanced mode with a 25 MHz 386 or faster processor. Using this
driver in Enhanced mode with a slower computer may cause your system
to slow down while WAVE sounds are playing and the sound quality
This driver uses a printer port to play sounds. If a sound is
playing, the printer port will be unavailable until the sound has
finished playing. If the Print Manager (or some other application)
is using the port, the Sound Source driver will NOT play the sound.

Instructions for use:

2) Run the Windows Control Panel. (Usually in the "Main" group.)

4) Select "Unlisted or Updated Driver" in the list box labeled
"List of Drivers" and click the [OK] button.
5) Type the path to the directory containing SNDSRC.DRV and
OEMSETUP.INF in the edit field and click the [OK] button.
6) Highlight the "Disney Sound Source wave driver" item in the list
box and click the [OK] button.

port your Sound Source is connected to in the group of radio
buttons titled "Port".

port not used for printing and you are not running the Sound
Source on battery power. Selecting "Speaker always on" keeps the
Sound Source from making nasty clicking noises when sounds start
playing but it also makes it impossible to print from the port
the Sound Source is connected to.

to try to improve the sound quality. Note that when this option
is selected, Windows will not run programs or respond to the
user while sounds are playing.
