I wonder if they buried the Audigy driver in the X-fi driver like they have done in the past.

(Edit) There are new beta Audigy drivers in this X-fi driver. Extract all the files, go to the driver folder, and run the setup. It will not update if you just try and run the downloaded file.

After reading the list of complaints from this group, I am rather amazed that you put up with any beta test other than a late stage Microsoft that is near RTM. Beta tests are messy by intent and shaking out the bugs is part of the process.They are not intended soley for your enjoymemt.

However. Creative is beyond bad about updating software/drivers for all of their major hardware releases. This keeps the new hwarze from perfermorning well. Given they create a no win situation, I will look elseware for a sound card on my next box.

i think you need another edit. wtf are you saying?

anyway, creative drivers, even final, are of a beta quality, so i'd take these with a smile, thankful i get anything for xp and the xfi.

WTF did I say? U have lost the skills needed to communicate with other humans if you find reading 5 sentances a major streach. Creative thinks their work is done once the hardware is RTM. The software gap is substantial and a total waste. I think we can agree the situation sucks..........................
