Windows 7: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtrememusic... Again :(

Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtrememusic... Again :(

Hi guys, I'm new here, but I've been reading the advice given here for quite some time now.

Recently I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and everything works fine - except Creative, of course

My XtremeMusic card doesn't work at all.
And let me assure you:
I have tried EVERY single download/link/patch/advice given in this forum concerning creative sound cards, but none of them work for me.
So my question is:

Do any of you know how to get the XtremeMusic to work on an x64 system, or should i return my x64 to the store and try to get an 32-Bit Windows 7 OS instead?

THank you

Helpless, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Let's start with finding out which Xtreme Music you have. If it is the Dell one that could be the problem. The cards from Dell have a different firmware on them and different DevID's from the "normal" cards from Creative, and as such usually don't work with the reference Creative drivers. It should work with this modded set,

Download XFI_SupportPack_2_0.exe

there is also this one,

SB X-Fi PCI Install Disc 1.0 (unofficial) - Creative Labs

with an updated driver as well as updated apps in it (using this one myself with zero problems on my Xtreme Music).

Going to have to pull the card and check the model number on it, which is along the top edge of the card and will look like SBxxxx, then we can go from there.

Ok yeah, mine's the Dell one. Great.
I still know the number, it's SB0460

Same model number as mine. Unfortunately doesn't mean it doesn't have the Dell firmware on it.

What happens when you try to install the driver?

Which specific driver? With the drivers from this forum it usually says something like "setup will cancel now because the hardware for this driver was not found", although the Soundcard appears in the device manager, and Windows keeps telling me the correct drivers are already installed and the soundcard works...

Ok, I've installed the whole package from the second link.

And ... nothing. Not a single Sound.
When I try to start the Creative Audio Console it tells me "no supported hardware was found. the program will be closed now."

I'm desperate.

So: 32bit or another solution?

Thanks in advance

That usually means no driver present.
What does it show in your Device Manager under Sound,Video & game Controllers?
