Windows 7: rocketfish 5.1 drivers help

Win 7 Ultimate x64

4left just had a look at the INF for that driver you posted, and it is nothing more than a Rocketfish branded version of the Creative Xtreme Audio (which is nothing more than a renamed Audigy SE/LS/DE/Value, which is a renamed SB Live 24 bit.

That being said there is a good possibility that this,

SB P17X Series Support Pack 2.0 (07/31/2009) - Aud... - Creative Labs

will work with your card. If it doesn't you may still be able to get it to install by adding the DevID for your card to the INF from that set. If it doesn't and you want to try, go to the extracted folder from above and locate the Drivers folder, then look for a file called P17.inf (maybe called P17X.inf). Then add the follwoing in the appropriate places under the Creative DevID's (don't need the headers),

;; Rocketfish 7.1
;; Rocketfish 5.1

;;Rocketfish 7.1
;; Rocketfish 5.1

then try again. May have to try installing manually through Device Manager,

stormy, first off, nice pooch . Second, thanks for the tip, I saw something similar on another forum but was not sure about trying a driver from another manufacturer. I give this a shot and let you know how it goes.

windows 7

I had the same issues. I went into device manager and it was still showing sound blaster so I deleted the sound blaster driver.

Then I installed the downloaded drivers from rocketfish(by creative labs) and only installed the drivers and none of the software.

Kind of made me mad that my more expensive and higher quality soundblaster wasn't compatible with win7 yet this cheap this is.

I'd read on a couple other forums NEVER use the CD unless you enjoy crashes, only download from the site and only install the drivers not the software.

Worked for me

Win 7 HP (upgrade from XP Pro SP3)

Sorry Stormy & all, I forgot to chime in. The Creative Labs drivers worked great! This after trying everything off the CD, only the drivers off the CD, and the drivers from the Rocketfish webiste all gave me the BSOD.

The Creative labs drivers were a challenge to install, and at first I thought they were not going to work, but after a few Win7 orchestrated reboots, I have sound!

Thanks again Stormy, I'll leave a bisquit for your pooch!

My rocketfish 5.1 works fine with windows 7. except for the fact that i get a giant latency problem when i try to monitor the input of a microphone or gutiar. I wish asio4all would work like it did with xp, but saddly it does not, any ideas on this matter would be be greatly welcome.
