C-Media 8738 will play midi files, if speaker setting to Quadraphonic or Surround Sound. If, for instance, WinAmp is playing a midi file and paused, then Windows sounds can be played from the Sound Properties test, but do not play on events. Otherwise they and all other sounds do not. When a MIDI is not on, then when a sound is supposed to be played, the speakers make a sort of clicking sound. When I tried to run windows update, it did find an updated driver for the mixer, but failed to install it every time that I've tried.
