The Windows Driver Model audio device driver is a proprietary technology that is inherent in virtually all Microsoft Windows operating system family since the Windows 98. This technology helps Original Equipment Manufacturers to design their devices in such a way that it can be correctly supported by the underlying operating system platform. In this context the device driver of the 3dfx VoodooTV FM PCI OEM WDM Audio Capture conforms to these specifications based on the interconnection that exists between the software and hardware components of the host computer system. This particular hardware component is hosted on any vacant PCI slot on the computer motherboard. In order for the operating system or any installed software application to take advantage of its functionality, the corresponding device driver must first be installed. This process will ensure that the installed hardware component will be correctly identified as well as made available to any requesting software application.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

The device driver interfaces provide a well structured communication system that flows between the PCI hosted audio adapter and the system generated PortCl. By implementing the Universal Audio Architecture standards the 3dfx VoodooTV FM PCI OEM WDM Audio Capture device can effectively route any audio data to the corresponding hardware component and store it into the local hard drive. The process allows for the creation of a digital audio file which can be subjected to post processing effects using various third party audio editing programs. The same audio file can also be played back using the default multimedia player of the host computer system. This functionality of allowing installed software applications access to the feature sets of the hardware component as well as to its generated files is partly the responsibility of the device driver. Sound reproduction may require the presence of a compatible sound card and speaker system.
