You have to consider how old that card is and when the drivers where written, 2GB was considered a massive amount of ram (not too mention how much it cost back then).
Actually the updated drivers from Creative simply do not work, per usual with Creative support. I consider non functioning drivers the same thing as having zero support.

In fact the only ones that work and have creative support are the ones made by Daniel K, but creative forced him to take out all the sound adjusting functions making them nearly worthless in my opinion. Once again, zero support.

I've been doing this a long time, been there done that, years ago in fact, back when Vista first came out and as per usual once again had zero support for my Audigy 2ZS. If not for Daniel K. we would all still be in that boat, I remember the entire blow out at the creative forums and witnessed it all live. So you can probably spare on the history about these drivers. I know all about it.

In the mean time I'am using the torrent I found hosted by Daniel K. These drivers work perfectly and also have full function on all sound adjustments, EQ everything working flawlessly. Perhaps you weren't aware of this fact?

Most of his drivers can be found in the non stripped down versions by looking for the torrent. The ones you posted are some BS generic stripped down Daniel K drivers which are the only ones that Creative would let him post on their site.
