Today I bought and installed a new sound card. Creative's Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI Express. More information about the card can be found here: Creative Labs Online Store (Europe) | Sound Blaster | Buy Creative PCI Express X-Fi Xtreme Audio
Anyway, this card is a little bit weird because it has line-in and microphone in one port.
I read a costomer review from the internet:
Pros: Everything on this card works. EAX, Open AL, I cant think of something that doesnt work.
Cons: The mic does not work at first yes we know, theres a reason why though. read below to everyone having problems with this. i had this problem too!!
Other Thoughts: You need to install the drivers that come on the cd, or on the creative website. once you have creatives programs install, you need to go in and switch the Line in over to Microphone. Creative allows you to do that, its something that comes with The software that they bundle. then you just have to make sure it doesnt start up with your computer and you are good to use your mic now.
Now the problem is that when I connect my mic it detects it as a line-in thingy and says microphone not connected. Now, I'm trying to find out how to switch from line in over to microphone?
Can anyone help me do that? I have windows 7 ultimate.
And I don't know if its anyone connected to it I hear and see that others who have Creative's X-Fi have some kind of "What U hear" thing also? I don't see it anywhere :/ I have the latest drivers and some creative applications installed
