I`m waiting for new drivers from Creative!
You know I am having the same exact problem BUT only for games and for anything like movie dvds if I play back through WMP. But WMP is crap so I usually use Media Player Classic and then it all works great.

I am thinking it is the Creative beta drivers. I hope that they release an updated version soon.

Windows 7 RC 7100

Thanks to this thread, I decided to try the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy *1* - worked like a champ after downloading drivers from Windows Update! Thanks everybody!

vista, windows 7

I for one was totally amazed that my USB soundcard worked, but really. the way Windows 7 is handling different drivers makes me warm inside. or i might just be really lucky with my hardware.

Win7 Build 7600 x86

EMU 1820m and 1820 work with latest Vista drivers v2.1.

Had just one little problem with the sw mixer and standby.

At wake up it would freeze the card.

I made two entries in scheduled tasks, one to exit the sw mixer just before going to standby, and one to start it after wake up.

Works perfectly now.

Win 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate 64-bit

Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer works on Ultimate x64 with the Win 7 driver installed from the Creative support site, version 2,18.0003 I think. I also installed their new version of Console Launcher to support changing between Game and Entertainment modes.

Creative Audigy 2 ZS works on Ultimate x64, again with drivers downloaded from Creative site.

Neither card worked with vanilla install and no Windows Update drivers were offered.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

Anybody help with this one?

I am running a machine based around an Asus P5B board, and am using an Audigy 4 sound card. I have disabled the onboard Realtek sound in the BIOS.

My problem is that i cannot get the mic to work properly. It works, however the recording is so choppy/stuttery that it is unusable. The line in seems to work fine though, as I feed my PS3 into this and it works no bother.

I tried the bog standard driver that Windows Update installs, and also the latest one from the Creative site (SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0011), but it made no difference.

A quick google would suggest that this issue also was apparent with the Audigy 4 in Vista, however so far I haven't found a fix, if indeed there is one.

Anybody offer any help at all?
