Windows 7: Creative X-fi Extreme music

07 May 2009   #1

Win7 RC (x64) Build 7100
Creative X-fi Extreme music

Hi there!

I got a hold of the Windows 7 RC (x64) Build 7100 yesterday and since then have tried many different drivers with no result. At first when i reboot my computer i get a pretty bad sound at startup when i play a mp3 song or open a vidoe but the sound tottaly dissapears after 3-5seconds to never come back again untill a new reboot. Anyone mind helping me that have got things to work out with the same card? Got a nforce 430 motherboard if that does any good.

Have you tried Daniel_K's drivers? Forgive my stupidity if those drivers are made for previous creative audio cards..

Or youp-PAX modded X-FI drivers? They look to be quite good.
