Update the driver from the manufacturers Website, if that doesn't work your sound card doesn't support them.

If you haven't might want to give this a try,

SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.8 (04/19/2010) - Creative Labs

There are also explanations about why most of those items that failed don't work in Windows 7.

Don't hold me to it but I'm pretty sure the Mixer doesn't work in Windows 7. Also have a look here,

-16bit.jpg

and make sure it is set to 16 bit and not 24 bit.

Also which Audigy is it (the model number; will look like SBxxx on the card: will help)? Is it from the 1/2/4 series, or from the SE/LE/LS/DE/Value series?

According to Creative, there are Win7 drivers for the SB0090:

Click through to get:

Creative Worldwide Support

It's supposed to support both 32 and 64 bit versions of Win7.

Good luck.

Thanks .. I have looked there .. it is the same driver I got now .. probably the card is just too old ... If I get the mixer I should be ok but I can't find it anywhere ..all the help here is well appreciated ..grateful for all your responds.

You shouldn't need the Mixer as most if not all what it could do can be done in the Audio Console that gets installed with the drivers,

Between that and the setting/options available in the Windows settings, you should be able to set it to anything you need. As far as I know the old Surround Mixer doesn't work with 7 or Vista, could be wrong but pretty sure it it worked Daniel would have included in his driver packs.

P.S. That screen shot is from my kid's computer with an old Audigy ES in it, running on HP x86 (and have an Audigy 4 running on the wife's on Ultimate x64, and both using the same driver packs). Only difference between it and yours is yours has the gold plated jacks and the fire wire port, other than that they are identical spec-wise.

Back to the original problem,
