There's some links in this thread from a few months ago:

You need to have the audio hardware set up for dos first.

Mpxplay doesn't need any DOS audio driver (set up) for a couple of PCI cards, it handles them native... (see sndcards.txt in the dos exe pack)

Usually the laptops have an Intel HDA compatible onboard soundchip, Mpxplay can handle this by a general HDA API, but sometimes the hardware manufacturers don't follow the standards (or simply don't care with it)... So maybe Mpxplay doesn't sound on some newer laptops...

MPXPLAY is the best, in DOS is better than any windows player, having much less background noises. I´m using it since several years, the 1.42 version in a AMD 486, and playing lots of music into a home brewed audio equipment.

If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.

Look at this link :


But you need to have audio hardware.

So what I can recommed you, is Mpxplay. It doesnt need DOS audio driver and its having less background noises. Good luck :)
