It would compress and alter the sound you originally had on DAT.  These aren't bit for bit transfers so you arent listening to what you had before...There are plenty of < $100 cards out there now that do bit for bit transfers and personally I think they are of higher quality than anything soundblaster has ever made.  I'll see if I can find the link to the OADE post where we were talking about it.

Here ya go!  Hope it helps!

If you need more help feel free to catch me here or on AIM at WookieOnTheRun.   One note- that Zoltrix isnt compatible with WinXP, FYI.

We use Win XP at work, and let me tell ya that ever since we "upgraded" from win98 to winXP my life as our technical supervisor has gotten a lot worse.

I agree, XP for home use blows, but I don't know about XP professional.  Our company upgraded from NT 4.01 to Win2K recently, and it's been nothing but problems.  Especially on our server, oh my god, nothing but problems.  We just got email back a week ago.  RightFax still doesn't work, and our databases aren't likeing the change either.  How come the major software upgrades never go as planned?  I know, its a trap.  If the upgrade went flawless, then those Micorsoft tech supoort guys would be out of a job.  Anything to stimulate the economy, eh?   ;)
