    Default Soundblaster live 5.1 drivers

    Hi,

    I here that soundblaster drivers are rubbish and there are some modded versions available. Does anyone know where I can get from?

    Thx,
    Josh

    I don't, but if you're using the old SoundBlaster:Live board, then you can just use the native drivers that come in WinXP. Whenever I installed the SB driver pack, I began getting a lot of stability errors in Windows. Unless you have a dire need for the SB control panel, you can get full functionality from the Windows drivers with no problems.

    Hi all , my first post.. hehe

    There are several alternative to creative soundblaster driver , such as

    1. EMU driver, from the emu developer themselves for the usage of their APS card

    http://www.emu.com/support/aps.asp

    These are just plain drivers, u still need to install creative surround mixer to change the settings and creative play centre to enable cmss.

    2. KX project driver

    http://www.kxproject.com

    This is a complete set of driver component developed by audio enthusiast..

    IMHO , the EMU APS driver is quite better than the KX driver.. but if you like to play a lot with DSP and effect, KX would be a better choice..

    Good luck :)

    Yes, I have the same sound card and the stock windows drivers work okay (EAX gets screwed up a lot though) and when I tried installing SB drivers I got a message saying "No SB card detected". Stupid-ass drivers cant tell I have the card when its blatantly obvious.

    I had no problems with the ones I got from http://www.soundblaster.com/drivers/
    my sb live plat needed the info for the ir bay etc so I didnt want to use any of the other drivers. I did have to make sure I removed the drivers installed by windows but then it worked fine.

    Yeah, the drivers on the site don't recognise my SBlive 5.1 either. Talk about teh ****TEH! Anyways, KX drivers seem to be working.
    *edit* Well, guess i was wrong. After trying and failing to install joystick drivers (uhh, what the hell?), the Add New Hardware Wizard kept saying that it failed to install new drivers. Then i got pissed off and deleted it all.

    Fer FUG'S sake!
