SoundBlaster Live! Drivers question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i own a SB Live! Value model 4830 (yeah i know, its OEM but i like it and i don't want to expend 100$us on an X-Fi) so i downloaded the latest drivers for WinXP (LiveDrvPack) and when i try to install it shows and error message that the it can't recognize any SB card in the system so i changed every option to make it work, disable onboard, change some settings on later win xp drivers, uninstall xp drivers, try it on several machines and the same thing...what do you think it can be?

EDIT
I have LiveWare2 on cd, it's the card drivers for win98 and ME it seems that it can be installed on win xp and use eax and CMSS features at all
do you think it's okay to install this instead of official drivers for winxp?

thanks in advance

If it works it works, but note your system can become unstable.

If you have an sblive! you could also go for the kx project.

Look it up on google.
