Windows 7: can i not use creative drivers for my x-fi titanium?

The Nvidia one will be the built in audio on your video card, as to why you have 4 of them showing I have no idea. The "high definition audio device" as long as the onboard audio is disabled should be your X-Fi. For whatever reason there are times on a clean Windows install or adding the card after it isn't detected by Windows (had this happen with my X-Fi both times I have clean installed 7) and it takes manually installing the driver, and then you can get the apps to install and the card will work.

To install just the driver manually start with wither the latest driver from Creative,

Creative Worldwide Support > PCI Express X-Fi Titanium

or you can use the daniel_k set mentioned. Then you will need something like Winrar to extract whichever one you decide to use then follow this to install the driver manually,

Driver Install - Device Manager

when you get to step 5 browse to the,

XFTI_PCDRV_LB_2_17_0008\Drivers\wdm

folder if using the driver from Creative, or to the,

XFI_SupportPack_2_0\Drivers\20K2\wdm

folder if using the daniel_k set.

Personally I would start with the daniel_k set, get the driver installed, then assuming the driver installed then run the setup.exe in the main extracted folder and pick and choose which of the apps you want to install.

The download may be an exe, but it can be extracted with Winrar or 7zip.

i am getting so frustrated!. i physically removed the card after uninstalling the high definition audio device from system manager. booted without card, verified that i only had the 4 nvidia entries. ran the setup for the driver, it stated no device was found and exited. i shut down, install the card and reboot. ofcourse windows quickly installs the device with its own drivers. im still unable to update the driver because it says either driver is up to date or newer driver is found.

i came accross a post on the net where the recomendation was to kill access to internet and turn off windows updat and install. this didnt work but when i was in windows update there was a message saying i had 2 optional updates. one for x-fi and one for videocard. i installed the x-fi update and what do you know it worked. i have creative options now in sound settings. the video update is probably due to me rolling back vid driver to previous. it performed a little better. this was crap though, why did i just have this update sitting there? should i install the dts, dd, and launcher now?
