To me it sounds like you should probably do a clean reinstall of your operating system. And probably ditch the original soundcard drivers while you're at it in favour of the kX drivers or whatever the SoundBlaster kids use these days.

I'm one of those SB kids... :/ :nuts: and I use a modified set of soundblaster drivers. Someone recreated the soundcard drives also for the audigy, but also for the X-Fi and made it so that the drivers actually work. Since, I have a stable system and everything works as it should.

Also did the same for a colleague and he also got a stable system after wards.

Lchip.


those daniel k drivers.

i downloaded from the location you gave me.


when i clicked the file to install, it started to, then my usb drive stopped working for a moment, then when it started up again, the entire directory was deemed corrupt by windows and made totally unaccessible.

(that directory had a bunch of other stuff.) (lol and i just spent hours reinstalling windows prior (all my driver discs were mysteriously gone and i needed to install my hdd in another computer and all sorts of stuff.)

any ideas about this?

lol, two restarts later, the folder reappeared.

seems it did install but weirdly, mpt does not work really well with these drivers, or so it seems, maybe ill give a lil whack at it later.


so, saga, care to share a link to that recommended (by you.) asio soundcard?

I've never had any problems with ESI products. Depending on your needs and funds, you could either get the Juli@ XTe or Maya XTe. Both are PCIe cards, so relatively future-proof for now. I started out with the Juli@ (PCI version of the Juli@ XTe), it has one stereo input and one stereo output, so if that's enough for you, you get some really high quality stuff. Otherwise, I guess the Maya XTe could be a bit cheaper, has two stereo inputs / outputs but doesn't come with a MIDI interface anymore as far as I can see - and "only" goes up to 96 KHz instead of 192 KHz, but that's really not a problem. ESI drivers have been solid for me so far.

Odd, maybe the disconnect of the usb drive caused a bad installation.

Do note, that in order to succesfuilly install the Daniel drivers, you must uninstall the WDM drivers windows installs by itself. So you need to go into the device manager, uninstall the WDM drivers, and not restart. then install the daniel drivers.

That should make it install correctly.

oh, and my SB X-Fi elite platinum is also like 10 years old, probably longer as its older than your card I think, and it still serves me very well today. I'd hesitate what card to buy when this one breaks down.

Dude, the X-Fi wasn't launched before 2005. Let's do some basic math: 2013-2005 = 8. So no, your card is not older than 10 years. The Audigy 4 is a lot older than the X-Fi, too.

hehehe ,

oh time, a year can seem like an age upon age..  (or go by faster than a speeding bullet..)

like indiana jones said, "its not the years, its the fucking milage."


i wasnt far off though, audigy 2 (which is what audigy4 value is really.) was released in 2003. so probably 2004.

maybe i should throw a birthday party for the little girl, she done good.

my last soundblaster. (had the original and adlib before it.)
