Windows 7: No sound with Audigy 2 sound card?

No sound with Audigy 2 sound card?

This is probably just a stop gap but I was finally able to get my old Creative Audigy 2 card to work with 5.1 surround by using Audigy 4 drivers for Windows 7. I haven't been able to adjust bass and treble yet but I've been too busy just enjoying the music to get around to looking for ways to make that happen. Music sounds better than it ever did in XP or Vista!

It may not be a complete fix but at least it'll get you some sound until they come up with driver for those of us with older sound cards. Be patient as it takes a while for the complete install!

You may have downloaded the Audigy 4 driver, but it has been a unified driver for the entire Audigy lineup (1, 2 and 4) for quite a while now. If you haven't seen or tried it yet you may want to give this a try,

SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.5 (10/11/2009) - Creative Labs

in addition to the driver you get back some of the apps (if you used any of them) that worked in XP,

Included in the pack:

- Audigy series driver 2.18.0011.10 (latest beta)
- ALchemy 1.26.04
- Audio Console 1.32.02
- DDL and DTS Connect License Activation 2.00.03 (*)
- Dolby Digital Live Pack 3.00.03 (*)
- DTS Connect Pack 1.68.75 [modified 1.03.04] (*)
- Graphic Equalizer 2.00.65
- MediaSource DVD-Audio Player 2.00.78
- SoundFont Bank Manager 3.21.00
- Speaker Settings 2.00.60
And I agree with you, the sound in Windows 7 (and Vista for that matter) is much better than it was in XP.

You da man! As soon as I get through rockin' I'll try those drivers you posted. I'm certain my neighbors will be calling the cops soon anyway.

After the cops are gone (providing they don't arrest me for noise complaints) I'll try your suggested download. I'd love just a little more bass because there isn't an equalizer in this setup. My windows haven't broken yet but I keep trying!

I downloaded those drivers/apps and it fixed all the compatability issues I was having. I was wondering how long it was going to be before they put out a W7 driver for the Audigy series. I was getting tired of the realtek audio.
