X-Fi settings are not saving

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right, so I seem to have a problem with my X-fi Titanium HD. It's really quite strange, actually. I've looked around, and can't seem to find anybody else who has the same problem that I do. It may even be an OS issue.

Anyways, the problem is that, for some reason, the settings that I place in the Driver's audio control do not seem to save on each mode. (entertainment, gaming, and audio creation). The strange part of this is, not every setting is lost. Settings made under the THX Trustudio tab in entertainment mode do not seem to be changed upon switching to another mode and coming back to it. The CMSS as well as EAX settings for entertainment mode are saved, it seems. However, what is particularly annoying, is that every single time that the current mode is switched, no matter what mode it is to or from, the speakers seem to automatically set themselves to 5.1, even though I use a pair of headphone with the 2.1 setting (the headphones are the only thing plugged into the sound card). In addition to that, the crystalizer setting specifically in game mode is turned off when it is switched to.

It's just frustrating for me to have to re enter all of the settings every single time that I switch modes on the card. If I set up one of the three modes, then reboot, the settings are still the same. But for some reason, If I change modes, some of the settings are lost.


Basically, the card will remember the current settings if I stay on that mode. If at any point, I switch to another mode (game, audio creation, entertainment), the speaker settings get changed to 5.1, even though I (tried to) set each mode to 2.1. Plus, for some reason, the crystalizer in game mode is disabled when I switch back to it.

Sorry for the long read for a simple problem. I've bolded the important parts of it.


Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Are you using the newest version of the Console Launcher software? 2.61.53 is the newest. The older version would often hang and give me grief.

The link above will save you time and effort from wading through Creative's crap load of agreements, etc.
