Windows 7: X-Fi 5.1 Driver Fix

14 Jan 2009   #1

Win7 x64 Ultimate RTM
X-Fi 5.1 Driver Fix

Daniel K (a reknowned Creative driver modder) has made some unofficial drivers for Windows 7 that restore 5.1 for the X-Fi cards in Win7 Beta.

Sound Blaster X-Fi series Support Pack 1.0
Supported X-Fi models:

- Creative SB X-Fi PCI (except Xtreme Audio)
- Creative SB X-Fi Titanium PCI-E
- Auzentech X-Fi Prelude

Here is a link to the Creative forums with info, etc. At present only the MegaUpLoad link is working.

I installed with my Auzentech Prelude and all works as he as indicated. Your mileage may vary . Insure you uninstall your present drivers, reboot, then install these.

It is ONLY for the cards listed above.

As his disclaimer...there are no warranties, etc.
