Turbo requires samples. Samples are basically wav files, recordings of parts of the games audio. They're used when it's too difficult to emulate the analog circuits used to make sounds in certain early games. The entire set of samples for turbo is about 9 files totaling about 637KB. The file is called and should be in a folder called samples. If you don't have anything in your samples folder, you will need to go out and find Turbo's samples file.

If you have a in your samples file already, check that you have samples enabled in the settings.

The file should have:

Or set mame.ini to look into the external harddrive, too.  (Mame can look into multiple folders.)

rompath                   roms
samplepath                samples

change to:
rompath                   roms;driveletter:/ifnotinrootfolder/roms
samplepath                samples;driveletter:/ifnotinrootfolder/samples

I do this for roms more often than samples; samples are small in size, so having a dozen copies of the same sample zip file is not has big a deal as having multiple copies of, say, a chd file. ;)

Also, mame doesn't care if you use '/' or '\' in the paths.
