I take it the Console Launcher is only for the latest cards - I can't install that for my Xfi Xtrememusic card. I guess I'll have to be a little more patient ;)

One can get all of these updates (official, not beta obviously) from just running the Creative Updater correct? If so I will do that, as it has been a month or so since I have last run it.

same rule applies to creative cards as does ati cards. if the drive works for you as is, don't update. you are only asking for trouble...

Certainly not the case for my cards i've owned. Newer drivers have provided more features in some cases, so updating is strongly recommended.

Same here. I have not had an issue with any Creative drivers since like 2007 actually.

Now of course I am going to have issues with the next drivers I install, Murphys Law FTL.

For some reason the autoupdater client no longer seems to work for me here, when I launch it I get a dialogue box saying "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'switch to' to activate the busy program and correct the problem" there is a choice of switch to or retry (Cancel is greyed out) hitting retry does nothing and hitting switch to just opens the start menu!

Going to the website is even worse, choosing the option to auto check for software autoupdate gives an error about Vista not being supported, I am running Win7 Pro x64 :(

That said I have installed the SBXF_PCDRVBETA_US_2_18_0015 drivers as I have a X-Fi XtremGamer Fatal1ty Pro card and found that the popping I was getting before has gone, so these are good for me :)

[edit]

Just read Raj's post above, I might give those Pax drivers a look at a later date.

I have a set of the Tactic3D Alpha series headsets, and the drivers/software/firmware hasn't been updated in almost a year; pretty sad.

There is almost no support from Creative unless you have their higher end sound cards... a shame really.

Where's my Audigy 2 Driver? :p That card is still better than all the latest integrated ones :p

Yes it is. Hopefully they will perform at least as well as the Win 7 set at launch time ;)

Great thread, I suspect something and I was right.

There's newer (beta) Windows 7 drivers buried in the Windows 8 drivers. Creative has done this before (hidden newer driver's for older cards).

  • Download and extract the files from the driver .exe (I use 7zip to extract the files)
  • Go in to the Drivers folder
  • Run Setup

Only try if your up for a bit of adventure and may risk breaking your computer.

Creative drivers for Windows 8 will come out of beta when Windows 10 is about to release.

Seems they have reposted the beta Windows 8 driver for the X-Fi range with a newer digital certificated dated 26th September 2012. Maybe they fixed the "no sound after restart" issue but as they have not posted any release notes I cannot say for sure.

Ive installed the latest Daniel K. drivers ( http://www.lecuistre.net/pages/WN5fnG/ ) for my Audigy 2 ZS and everything is working except im very disapoint son about the equaliser ! 5 BANDS!! on a card that sold for that much while Realtek have over 10 bands EQ. But the sound quality is so good i'm sticking to my ZS anyway. Anyone here can tell me if the X-Fi cards have better EQ's and if they could work on older sound cards ?

Looks like Windows 8 users of the Reacon3D PCIe card have got an updated driver published via windows update today.
