    Might wanna check updates for LOTR:TTT, the problem could be that the version you have doesn't support 5.1 or that there's just a bug and a newer patch will fix it. I hate that about video games, I'm still waiting for CombatArms to work with windows 7!

    If that's not the case then I suggest maybe finding out how to contact the SB Support team and discussing the problem with them. They may be able to help you, but they might also want you to buy a new card. If they say to buy a new card don't! Just insist that it is their drivers AND NOT your card.

    Yes i do, i also tried to launch the ''Setup a Microphone'' from ''accessibility'' in the control panel, and i get the following message:

    ''Your current default speech engine does not support this action at this time''


    sidenote: in the playback devices i have only the Microphone as an available device, i also activated everything from the creative consoles.


    edit1: anyway mate you made me have good sound back from my card i have only the fear that there's something wrong with it cause the lack of 5.1 sound and the mic not working are things that are worrying me :)

    Unless you like hearing everything that comes out of the speakers, you need to have the mic muted under playback (line in as well), and only unmuted in the recording properties.

    As much as I hate to say it I have a feeling about the only thing that may solve it is to do a clean 7 install and start from scratch. Reason for saying that is that with all the different drivers you have tried, there is pretty much no way to know whether everything has been uninstalled/removed (same can be said for just about any driver, not just Creative ones). The problem is that there are driver files all over the place (System32, SysWOW64, WinSXS, you name it), and there is just no way to get rid of or even really finding which one (especially if it is in the WinSXS folder) is causing the problem(s).

    That's why I suggest doing a clean install of Windows, and starting over. Easier to do if you have a spare hard drive you can use (a partition will do as well, but then you end up with the dual boot options), then you can leave the current install alone. If you don't have a spare drive, make sure to backup what you want to save first (can even use Windows own backup utility and make a full backup is you have someplace with the space to hold it, and reload the image using the Windows disk if necessary).

    You are using the emu20k1 chipset, which means you should be able to use the official drivers for Windows 7 as that is the first in the X-Fi series and hasn't been discontinued. The Daniel K drivers are for Emu10k1 and Emu10k2, SBL and SBA. So what I would do is go and complain to Creative, visit their boards and throw a ruckus. Because a currently supported card should work, and it IS their fault. Really all you can do is test different configurations and settings for the drivers, or start going back in driver versions until you get something that works.

    [edit] and do what the guy above said Try a clean install.
