    This is the new Auzen X-Fi Forte driver (as of 06/09/2010), now in a complete pack.

    The driver was modified to add support for all PCI X-Fi cards, updated some shared components, fixed OpenAL 64-bit support.

    Works perfectly here, no issues with OpenAL, SPDIF also works just fine.

    The driver included supports the NVIDIA fixes originally for PCI-E Titanium cards, just double click the EnableNvidiaFix.reg or DisableNvidiaFix.reg and reboot.

    This is a WDM driver, so Decoder, DVD Audio and WhatUHear are available.


    Release Notes:


    Windows Security warning during driver installation

    When prompted with: "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software", choose "Install this driver software anyway".

    Shame on you, no responses yet :D
    In my opinion, this package sounds better than original Creative drivers, or even the PAX ones, which are basically only modded INFs AND it is compatible with all PCI X-Fis, except the Xtreme Audio. Try it :)

    First time going to 3rd party sound drivers.

    I'm the guinea pig!!!!!


    Downloading now, but at painstakingly bad rates. I really am hating this pay for speed concept websites are using.

    I have the DELL X-FI extreme gamer (sb0773) w/ Optical in and out right on the card. I'm running Logitech Z-5540 surround, and I plug into my speakers Control center for my Sennheiser PC-350s.

    I really need good sound quality and ability to easily switch between 5.1 and head phones. (With some Creative drivers the optimize output for headphones works like a charm, others its painstaking.)

    One of the issues that got here here was after I moved from 6 channel direct to my PC, I ran optical. My cable box has optical and my 360 also outputs toslink. I paid the 5 dollars to unlock Dolby live and DTS which is pretty sweet but for the most part I didn't really need since my receiver does both.

    I want to be able to run Xbox 360 and the PC sound at the same time, (keeping 5.1) . While having encoding is lovely, having both input and output I'd naturally love to decode DDL. My experience is telling me that is probably a hardware limitation of a cheap sound card.

    issues

    I ran into some issues and needed to get back up and running quickly so I just reenabled onboard audio and installed the software.

    I'm back at it again though, I obviously disabled the onboard in bios, and went through all the driver sweeper procedures to clean off any creative software.

    Anyways I'm pretty much stuck in a loop where I can get drivers to work w/ Windows etc but I cannot for the life of me get the Creative Software to open. The control panel and the console say there is no supported device installed.

    I have the SB0773 OEM version which I had been using flawlessly ( on countless installs) up until this. ( Using Creative software.) At this point I couldn't even get the base creative stuff to install and detect.

    I'm going to try reinstalling again, this time I registry cleaned to hopefully remove any traces of previous Creative software.

    I have my PC hooked up VIA HDMI to a TV. My current forte drivers don't allow sound to work with SPDIF this way right now. Will these drivers fix that?
    EDIT: just remembered that the forte isn't hooked up via SPDIF because it can't?

    These drivers worked great during my testing.

    What exactly screwed him over? these drivers?

    and how would connecting the forte to the motherboard help? I thought the video card was sending the signal since it's hooked up via HDMI.

    Nothing. The forte has a digital in 2 pin connection on it, but that doesn't do anything. There's no specified SPDIF output and i can't find a pinout. So frustrating.

    There is a external S/pdif output on the card, unless you are talking about internal.
    As for pins outs, S/Pdif is only two pins...try the one way, if it doesn't work try the other. Should work fine.

    This is the most up to date version of DK's work?

    I read something about an openal 64 bit fix. Do I need to worry about this?
