Windows 7: Reinstall goes nowhere?

08 Dec 2009   #11

10 Windows 7 Pro 32-bit
Driver prevents shut down?

I've narrowed my troubles with XPM down to the sound card. It's a SoundBlaster External Live! (SB0490). Once the drivers (only) are installed, device manager shows the card just fine. But trying a Restart in XPM I get a seemingly permanent "Shutting down the virtual machine..." I suspect this means the card is a dead end; it may not be worth the time trying to make the $^^&%*^$ thing work.

A solution of sorts

Turns out there is a beta driver for the SB0490 that, at least in my Windows 7 environment, allows recording vinyl. Had to do a search on the file name 'cuz the link at the Creative site had no file. Found the file in Turkey!
