Enjoy

Why are KX drivers not mentioned on the first page?

They seem better than the ones mentioned and work with quite a few (older) Creative cards.

Probably because they are not "official" drivers, or widely known. I know I've never heard of them.

I have, and unless they have changed the interface for them since the last time I tried them a few years ago they are not very novice friendly. That is the main reason I didn't include them in the opening post.

Of course they are not official.
But they are relatively well known among music makers, since they provide low latency ASIO and many routing options.

They didn't change the interface much and I agree that they are not very easy to configure for the first time. But still, I think it's better if we give people the choice and they can see for themselves what suits them. Besides, even a newbie can ask on a forum (kx has their own support forums) and get help.

Also, they work with more than 2GB of RAM, unlike the Daniel_K drivers.

vinot, welcome to the forums.

If that card is the one I think it is,

Creative Sound Cards.-sb51.png

you're pretty much SOL as far as drivers for it and Windows 7 goes. Reason for that is that card is some half-assed version that only came out in limited (very limited) regions, and saw limited support in getting all of one driver update back in 2007 for XP,

Creative Worldwide Support > Sound Blaster 5.1

That and I have no idea what is actually on the card as info on it is very hard to come by. I do know that that card has its very own driver, unlike a lot of the cards that Creative have released that can be used on several different cards,

1. One driver for all Audigy SE/DE/Value as well as the SB Live 24 bit, and until recently the X-Fi Xtreme Audio (they separated this from the Audigy driver when the PCI-E version of the card came out)

2. One driver for all PCI X-Fi's, except for the Xtreme Audio

3. One driver for all the PCI-E X-Fi's

3. One driver for all Audigy's from the original to the the Audigy 4

If yours is the on pictured above as far as a driver goes about the best you can hope for is that the XP driver above will install; may have to use Compatibility Mode

Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

You could also leave the card out and go with the onboard audio on the motherboard.

I checked this site for the SB073A (X-Fi Xtreme Gamer) and the card is not listed in their main FAQ's - they provide a link to a full list of boards, but it seems dead for me (http://kb.kxproject.com/list.html ) - The card worked fine under Vista 32-bit with 4GB RAM, but has never worked since I upgraded to Win 7 Prof 64-bit and 8GB RAM. I've tried Creative's drivers ( both 6-26-09 and newest 6-16-10) as well as daniel_K's drivers to no avail. I finally gave up and just use the mobo's built in sound with poor Vista/7 drivers (the sound works, but the control panel crashes on load)

Also - considering the ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829271001 ) HT Omega Striker - anyone have this with 8gb+ RAM?
