Hi, I had started this thread a while ago...see click here and have since tried all variations of Creative drivers and none gives me the ideal scenario. I know there was a guy called 'Daniel_K who did some audio drivers for Creative cards (I have the X-fi Extreme Audio and Vista) and I was wondering whether anyone had tried the drivers and also where to find them.
I am still working on the June 07 drivers, as I cannot get the December 08 ones to install. I have uninstalled old drivers and tried everything I can think of but no luck - what I really wanted sorting was to be able to record 'what you hear', but this is not enabled for me unless I use the original drivers that came with the product. However these drivers have other problems such as not recognising the microphone and not playing music out of all speakers.
If you mean the Creative Mediasource Player, I have this but unless I have the 'what you hear' enabled drivers, the option to record through this source is not available.
I have since had a bit of a read through the Creative forums, I was trying to avoid that if I am honest :-) , and it seems Daniel_K is back. He has been busy writing the Windows 7 drivers for Creative, strange setup that is?
Anyway the upshot is that a) I had downloaded the wrong drivers before, thats why they would not install :-( and b) I think I have the best scenario I can hope for with this card. I just have to switch back from current fully working drivers (and the card does sound excellent by the way) or going back to a 'compromised' setup every time I want to record 'what you hear' - its bareable.
Having read through the Creative forums, I think I am a lot luckier than other X-Fi Extreme Audio users....
