    So Creative wants YOU to pay for working Vista drivers/apps. What about a free CD for anyone asking for it (read X-Fi owners), Creative???

    Reminds me of the software that came with my Dell laptop. My integrated sound is SIGMATEL HD Audio. Creative charged it customers for a CD that only added a bunch of lame programs that did nothing slow down their computers.

    Yes, that cd is the same as this one the're trying to sell. A mod on the Creative forums confirmed it.

    For me it would cost me a total of €11 (including tax and shipping) to get this $@#$ CD.

    Thats because Xtreme Audio isn't really a X-Fi card...

    lol, no, ive just said twice that creative have already said the CD will be available on torrent and as a download from their site, Cat has already said it on their forums and unless someone posts their statement that its changed then this thread is irrelevant, if someone can prove me otherwise then cool, but everysite that has news on the CD provides the torrent link

    Its only available to buy for those that cant download it, they've said that also, im not trying to flame/annoy or whatever,im just passing on what creative have already said, also i think theres too much creative bashing, its M$ fault that they fd up the sound API in vista, yes creative could have been quicker, but compare that to nvidia who's drivers still suck bigtime

    Oh and ive just tried the torrent a few horus ago, its great and good to have all the stuff back

    I bash Creative not just because of their drivers and such, I spent $150 on this damn sound card(stupid me) and have had to deal with Creative's RMA service and Tech support(which sucks a$$). So, I'm pretty tired of Creative all together.

    I know (made the same mistake once), but it's still a letdown for Audio owners.
