Hi everyone,

I just want to share my happiness. I finally have sound with my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi laptop.

My spec: Acer Aspire 5612WLMi, Intel Core Duo T2300, 1.5GB memory, Intel GMA 950, 120GB HD, Realtek High Definition Audio, Mac OS X 10.4.6 Pathed Myz.

Used audio patch: AzaliaAudio.pkg of Skippy. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=36520

Thanks, Skippy.


Before I tried many versions of 10.x.x. From 10.4.3 to 10.4.11. Only 2 versions ( 10.4.3 8F11114 Patched JaS v4.2b and 10.4.6 Patched Myz.) are satisfy beside the audio; no audio. Other version ended up with no audio and no network. Some version even didn't boot. The weird and frustrated version was Uphuck 10.4.9_v1.4i_r2; after installation and reboot it stuck at the intro with music! It was the first time I heard sound after a Mac installation. Unfortunately it stayed there.


I have also tried 10.4.3 8F11114 Patched JaS v4.2b with the AzaliaAudio.pkg. But OS X didn't boot after installation of the patch. So when I tried 10.4.6 Pathed Myz, I was a little nervous. But it succeed! I get sound from the onboard sound device.


Before I have found a alternative to get sound if nothing helps.


This USB 5.1 sound card is designed to work with PC, but it works with Mac no problem. No driver needed. Everything work, including mic and input! I think it has the identical hardware as the Hercules USB 5.1 sound card.
