Link to old X-Fi drivers with flexi jack?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I've been using on-board audio as my mic input for months due to the new windows 7 drivers for X-fi cards which dropped 'Flexi Jack' support which is what controls the mic. If anyone knows where to find the old windows 7 drivers could you please provide me with a link

If your card has a true flexijack, you can change its settings in the Creative Console Launcher. The flexijack has always been able to be changed from there.

That's the problem. They seem to have removed the flexijack tab from options so I am unable to make changes

you should also have a Creative Control Panel in your programs menu. The control panel usually installs with the driver installation.

Try these out. They were recently updated and I can confirm that the Flexi-jack tab is there.

Uninstall old drivers, uninstall card, restart, install the Daniel_K drivers. These are a MUCH better version of creative's drivers, made by a guy who knows his stuff.

Thank you as always for your pointing out the obvious. I have eyes and I read very well. You are always ready to post something snarky.

The Creative control panel can be installed one of two ways: Through the standard drivers that can be downloaded from Creative's website or through using Creative's auto-update feature. I have used that feature with the card the OP SPECIFIES. Therefore I have considered his dilemma.

The card works just fine using standard drivers and he can have the control panel installed "after the fact" by simply using Creative's Auto-Updater or web update. In his system specs, it says Windows 7 Ultimate "stripped" which makes me believe that the drivers are not installing properly or he never ran Creative's autoupdater to begin with.

Installing Daniel's driver pack when the card can be ran without the 'modified' package is a terrible recommendation. The OP will be joining people always asking for changes to the driver and wondering what was or was not fixed from Creative's own driver by reading over the thousands of conflicting posts that people will put up in sharing their own experiences.

The OP should try reinstalling Creative's newest driver for your his card. His stripped installation of Windows 7 may be preventing parts of the drivers components from showing up on his system. I may be wrong about this but when I used a slipstream package the same situation happened to me.

The OP can even use Internet Explorer (not firefox or chrome) with Creative's webpage and try to autoupdate his system and perhaps the driver will install itself again and put the control panel back in his programs group in the start menu.

It's a bug in the drivers where the option goes missing. Happened on my Titanium and Xtreme Audio.

Uninstall the drivers, get the latest beta ones, reseat the card (maybe in a different slot as well) and install the drivers. Should come back.

No.

I have had a great experience with these drivers and I'm sharing it. Other people have too. You recommended them in another thread.... Make up your mind

I offer solutions for the poster from official sources. I NO LONGER recommend driver packs when the stock drivers from Creative work just fine.

I do not recommend Daniel's or Robert M.'s drivers any longer to anyone. In the past (over a year ago) I did. Now there is no reason to. If the poster or OP of this thread does not have the Creative control panel, he either needs to use official drivers or Creative's AutoUpdate. I have done it myself. Those cobbled together packages with .ini files changed from 0 to 1 and 1 to 0 are no longer necessary.

Daniel knows his stuff, and has recently updated his driver pack. It has everything needed plus bonus software that helps with different setups. I'm just recommending it cause it worked flawlessly for me.
