Need Creative X-Fi Extreme Audio PCI-Express WinXP drivers

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello All

OK, first off I've tried "numerous" drivers for this card and none of them work. I keep getting an "unsupported device" error. What I really need is a copy of the driver CD in either uif or iso format that I can download from a file server like FileFactory. If anybody has this card can you please upload an image of your CD so I can download it.

Thanks,

Micah

Sorry, didn't find the drivers I needed. Thanks anyway for the help. The PCI-Express is a fairly new card which just came out this year I think. Creative has a download link on their website for the card but no drivers listed. I've tried the PCI verison of the X-Fi Extreme Audio drivers but these didn't work either.

Yes, I've tried those too, but nothing. I can find some torrents on the web but I have to register though one of those adult sites to download it, and I am not going to do that. I'll just keep looking and maybe somebody that has the card will help me out. Thanks again.

I had the same problem with the X-Fi PCI-e card with windows XP. I managed to get the card working by using the "X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook" drivers which you can get from the creative website.

However, you can't install the drivers using the setup.exe since since the software won't be able to detect the card. You have to install the drivers manually through device manager.

For the "newbies" reading this:
Use winzip to unzip the driver .exe contents to a temp directory. Eg c:\emp

Right click on "My Computer"
- Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager
Under "Sounds, video and game controllers"
- Select the device
- Right Click and go to "properties"
- Drivers Tab -> Update Drivers
Can windows connect to windows update and search for software?
- No, not this time
What do you want the wizard to do?
- Click: Install from a list or specific location (advanced)
Please choose your search and installation options:
- Click: Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.
Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware:
- Click "Have disk"
- Go to c:\emp\\Drivers\\Driver\\WinXP\\bin
- Select t3.inf
- Hit "Open' then "OK"

Un-select "Show compatible hardware" checkbox (!!! Important !!)

Under Manufacturer select:
Creative Technology Ltd

Under Model Select:
SB Xtreme Audio Notebook

Click "Next"
Click "Finish"

Reboot your computer.
Go to control panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Audio tab
-Select "SB Xtreme Audio Notebook" as default device
- Hit "OK"

- Enjoy listening to your crappy audigy card that has been rebadged as a X-Fi Xtreme Audio.
- List the item on eBay and try to off-load it to some sucker so you can buy yourself a "Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro".
