Hey Guys,
I had sound working on a fresh install of 10.4.8 however i found that audio out in OSX was through a different port than in Windows. This was a bit of a pain when switching OS's as i'd have to switch the plug as well.
Adding ADS70 and ADS71 to the AppleAC97AudioIntelICH within the AppleAC97Audio kext fixed the problem! Can't confirm the Mic as I don't have one hooked up.
Cheers,
IAN

OK heres how i got the audio out ports working correctly on my soundcard: ADI AD1980 on an ICH5 Northbridge. I was incorrect above, you dont want to edit the AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext.

Navigate to:
/System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext/Contents

Open the Info.plist and look for
<key>PNPVendorID</key>
below it ADD IN the following
ADS70 ADS71
Note: (ADS75 ADS74 ADS73 ADS72 should already be there)

Save the .plist, run Disk Utility and repair permissions. Delete the extensions.mkext and .kextcache and reboot. Should do the trick

I did the second part of the tuto and I got @noise@ from my speaker. Now when I slide the volume bar, I hear the sound but I can't hear anything in GBand or Mp3.

I have a SoundMax integreated card (ICH5 NorthBridge)
Mobo : P5p800 Se

Hello People

I tried many different solutions for getting my SoundMax (vendor 11d4, device 1981) to work. It's a 2-channel internal solution of my Thinkpad Z61m. Also I tried the guide above, but nothing works. I don't get a volume slider, also no available Sound Devices...
I run JaS 10.4.6.
Does anybody have a clue? Tried for hours now.

Best

Hi, thanks for the trick. It partially worked for me.

(I ear a "noise" instead of "TADA" when I do the trick )

I can change sound volume, I can listen music in itunes, I can play divx with sound in QuickTime, mic is ok.

But I can't ear sound from GarageBand and I can't ear my interlocutor in skype.

My computer is an Optiplex 170L.

Anyone has the same problem ?

thx

Flo

I was doing some research and I had a hunch this was a similar Audio driver/device to my onboard Audio on my Asus P5B VM (Micro ATX) mother board. You are awsome! :)
