    Srry to confuse, i put my old card back in so I could have sound until I figured the problems out.I started attempting to install new card on Thurs lol, so after couple of days trying to do on my own w/ no success i got a little flustered w/ no sound.

    I should do as you said and remove old drivers than shut down, remove old card......then put in new card and re-boot and install drivers from site?

    srry for not clearifying that, I am administering punishment as we speak:hammer:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    No go there either fellas :snip:

    seemed like everything was going ok then all of a sudden got the same as before from new found hardware...

    "Multimedia Audio Controller

    An error occured during the instalation of the device. The data is invalid"

    Same message for PCI Input device

    I installed the latest drivers from creative and rebooted when I got these messages, so I cancelled through them and attempted to install driver update(2 drver dl's at creative site, one was drivers and other was update)
    when i attempted update I got error message that said could not complete instalation no Creative Sound blaster(WDM) not found

    when I go into device mannager under sound,video game devices there are no drivers for sc there?

    now i'm really confused

    Perhaps it's an IRQ conflict? Your soundcard is a major device, and therefore should have it's own interupt request shiznat. Simple solution is to just move your card away from the video card of yours. A major device should never go in the PC slot directly under the Video Card because often the AGP slot (Brown bad-boy where the vid card goes) and the 1st PCI slot will share IRQ's. Try it in the second slot and then follow the audigy gamer directions EXACTLY except with the online drivers. If you need further assistance I would call Creative Labs, perhaps there is a compatability problem or something... Just keep trying dude! :afro:

    what is that "legacy audio driver" under "Sound, video and game controllers" in your device manager?
    what are those drivers for?
