    Default Z68x ud4 PCI sound card issues

    Hi I have a sound blaster platinum audigy 2 on my last gigabyte motherboard it worked perfectly
    since upgrading to the UD4 my sound blaster can't play audio at anything above 16bit and even then it pops and crackles

    the card it self displays in the audio console as a DF80 when normally under my p35 chipset its would display as a A000 card

    I am using the latest bios F9

    really disapointed with this motherboard giving me issues with the pci card

    Unfortunately the Creative Cards (X-Fi series) have always been "poppy". My X-Fi Fatal1ty hated my nForce4 mobo, and it still occasionally pops on my new Z68X (but it's rare, and a reboot normally cures it).

    Have you tried the CTRL-F1 in BIOS? Mine shows up the PCI sub-menu and I can amend the PCI timing - which CAN help with latency which in turn can reduce some pops/crackles.

    Get hold of a copy of the "DPC Latency" tool (Google it, it's free) and see if you're getting latency when accessing the disks AND playing noise. If you are, it might help. Just a thought.

    Did you disable the onboard sound in the BIOS? Tried with the latest ver of Creative audio driver for Win 7 (or XP?)?

    yes I am using the latest BIOS F9 and latest chip-set drivers and I have of disabled on-board audio

    I have been getting support from Gigabyte

    they are actually asking me to LOAN them my sound card and send it to Gigabyte HQ Taiwan because they only have a creative audigy 2 value card and that works for them BUT mine is a premium card and looks totally different.

    I can't believe a multi-million pound company can't just go on ebay or something and buy one but they won't
    I think my next mobo will be Asus or Asrock because that had PCI sound issues with Z68 and fixed them already with out asking for a loan of a pci card from a customer
