It seems to only produce sound at the 40%-60% levels compared to XP. i know this for a fact since i've done testing. it's annoying to have the volume up 100% all the time with it STILL not being loud.
I love windows 7 but I will be forced to go back to XP if I can not find a working driver for this.
any ideas? thanks.
The only ones that work at the Daniel K Audigy 2zs drivers. I have two systems with that card. The Auto install ones do not work at all,...the creative ones have terrible static noises,...this occured on both machines!
I had to google for the Daniel K Audigy 2 drivers, I could only find a torrent link but it was easy to find and download from there using Utorrent. I believe the drivers were made for Vista originally.
That is the only way your Audigy 2 or Audigy 2zs is going to work. His drivers worked perfectly for me on both machines.
You can get the torrent link here, just a link to the torrent, if you are lucky someone will be hosting it again. Creative Soundblaster Audigy Series Vista Drivers [by daniel k] Torrent Download - Torrent Reactor NET
If low sound volume is the only problem then also try doing this, set to DVD quality 48000Hz.
