Creative SB Live PCI Card & Win XP Compatibilty

  Giggle n' Bits 13:46 12 Jul 2003

Fitted my PCI SB Live Card with Model No. CT4670
It seems to me there is a compatibilty issue relating drivers for XP.

I have installed the Drivers which came with my SB Live and cetain application components in the Creative software pop up messeges about no plug ins found.

Looking at Creative Site for UK I see lots of drivers patches.

Thing is which do I actually need to install to bring my SB Live card up to date to work with Win XP Home.

Don't want to have to bin the card please can anyone help ?.

When I moved from ME to XP, I obtained a disk from Creative containing XP drivers for SB Live! and lots of other goodies for a nominal £2 or thereabouts. Have a good search around the Creative site to see if the disks are still available.

You could contact them by email and ask, as well.

i think you'll need the 'livedrvpack.exe' click here the patches you mention can then be applied (if required).

You can get drivers for just about anything from click here

Just put in the details and it will direct you to the right place.

You have to join but it doesn't cost and is quite safe. You might want to ignore the ads that come with it though.
