    btw about Pax suite and THX, you must rename these 2-3 files, so it works again:

    I used my old Audigy 4 OEM with Deniel_K's "Audigy Support Pack" for Windows 7 x64. But I bought an X-Fi OEM card today (something like this ; it was cheap...).

    This card was designed to be an UAA compatible product, and the "read me" of Daniel's last "X-Fi support Pack" says:
    - all PCI models, except SB077X UAA OEM
    Is it true for the later CD too? I am confused.

    I found this:
    SB X-Fi Series AuzenUAA Pack 1.5
    But it is based on a relatively old BETA driver (not to mention that it was intended for the Prelude cards...).

    So, some questions:
    - Do I need UAA drivers or can I simply use the latest WDM drivers with this card?
    - Are UAA drivers better? (I want to play OpenAL games, listen music throug ASIO and watch movies with a WASAPI excl. supported audio renderer.)
    - Where can I download the latest unmolested softwares? (I mean, the configuration consoles. The Autoupdater doesn't work on Vista+)

    I don't want any 'tweaks". I don't need any EQ presets (like Bass Boost :biggun:) or anything like that. (Yah, I mean PAX things...)
    Is it safe to use the softwares from a PAX pack, uninstall the "tweaked" driver (By the way... Can they be properly uninstalled anyway?) and install the latest vanilla driver? Are the softwares "tweaked" too? (I guess they are...)

    Fwiw, you can use THX in Windows 7 by using XP compat. mode during the install....

    do you know what code does it have, something like SB046,...


    that UAA.15 is very good driver dont let it fool you if its old, it has a glitch or two but imo not a big deal.

    Im using these UAA1.5 still, for over 1 year and never had any serious issues, plus it has 64bit bit support etc..

    There are no sound tweaks in any of DK packs... that was with PAX suites but last time i asked him about these tweaks he said he's gonna drop them.


    Well UAA is a little better because of better win vista/win7 support compared to WDM, its still wdm once you install it but there is something specific about them, i dont really know atm..




    @Pill

    you sure its not for Audigy and XFI might have a problem?

    Oh....THX console isn't supported in Windows 7 (don't ask me why , lol), that's why you need to install it in XP mode..:)

    hehehe but for Audigy :D


    I have XFI chip and it works fine without any compatibility, except those PAX drivers, he used some diff versions and now you have to rename those 3 files.. to start THX cpl again.

    :)

    No kidding, well I wonder why Creatshlt disabled it for the Audigy then...? Typical..

    Btw, do you know what causes the BSOD in games with the X-Fi?

    It's an SB0770. It's not supported by the UAA package.
    I am using Windows 7 x64

    I tried to use the equipped CD (2006) -> No sound at all.
    After I downloaded and installed the latest official PCI X-Fi drivers from Creative (2_18_0015) and let the AutoUpdate to update my software components I managed to get some sound in some modes but it worked with reduced functionality and I got random BSODs during mode switches (Game,Entertainment,Creation).

    I gave a run to the PAX Master Suit 1.7 + PAX driver v1.3b4 -> The result was the same.


    I almost decided to throw the bastard out of my window because I had some file system errors after the BSODs. But I also wondered why can it cause them.
    I never had any BSODs since I have been using Vista/Win7 x64 (starting from Vista RC1) except when I tried too high overclocks. (But that didn't cause file system errors.)


    I knew I shouldn't buy a PCI soundcard nowadays but... my PCI Audigy worked fine and it was a good deal (I exchanged this X-Fi for a broken LCD display :infinity:).
    So, I take a look at the IRQ values and I figured out that my X-Fi shares it's resouces and the PCI line itself with many things, like my on-board RAID controller (that's why I had file system errors, I guess).

    I moved the card to the PCI_01 slot and the BIOS never managed to boot again. :puke2:
    (I simply used the PCI_02 because it was more "ergonomic" to leave some room for my arms when I mess with other things...)
    I reset my CMOS and I managed to go into the setup. I manually assigned IRQ_3 for my PCI_01 device (only the X-Fi uses it) and IRQ_4 for the PCI_02 lane devices (RAID, USB1.1, etc) and I could enable my RAID controller again.

    The BIOS can boot now and Windows 7 can boot too. It looks like Windows reassigns the IRQs but it looks reasonable.


    Now, I will let it to run with the compatibility driver until I update my OS: I currently have SP1_RC1 and SP1_RTM come out. (Can it cause problems with Creative drivers?)
    After that, I will try a clean install with the Forte package.


    I am also wondering: What is the recommended PCI latency timer for X-Fis? It is 32 by default with my BIOS. I didn't care about it but this X-Fi seems to be sensitive for PCI settings.

    I really recommend the DK drivers - not tweaked or modded, simply fixed..

    Or could try the KX set, but they are only for the 102k chips and I don't think your card has it.

    Not sure about that tho.

    Yes, it has the X-Fi chip but KX drivers won't give me EAX support.
    If it won't work, I will throw it out and stick with my good old Audigy 4.

    UPDATE

    The Forte pack didn't work.
    Now what...?

    Hi guys, I'm planning to reinstall my Seven, I have a X-FI XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro, I think the code is 70SB046A00000, which of these drivers should be more appropriate for me?
    I use my computer for gamming via analog ouput and for movies/music via digital spdif passthrough to my denon receiver.
    Thanks in advance for your replies!
