I suppose it was perfect timing that I only had my X-Fi for just a couple weeks now. Brought it back, refund, done. No need to smash it up or nothin like that. lol

Anyways, back to tin can onboard sound I guess until I get around to finding a new sound card.

Actually, every rep sans one is signed by the giver, and they are all from existing members... the new people can't even give rep right away, I don't think.

EDIT: we got bumped here... I like the preview window deal.. that's cool.

Does anyone here understand how a licensing agreement works? Creative sells different versions of these cards with different features. The hardware may be the same across all of them, but depending on which version you buy, they turn on or off certain features. Some of those features, like DD and DTS decoding, or DD Live, etc. require Creative to pay a licensing fee to other companies for every card they sell with that feature enabled.

If some guy on the Internet starts giving (or selling) everyone the ability to do whatever they want on any of their cards, he is stealing from Creative, and from their licensing partners. He isn't a hero, he's a thief. He will be lucky if Creative doesn't sue him now that he's essentially unlocked the keys to their IP and made it available for everyone. Their legal team could hold him responsible for any resulting millions in losses because of the reaction.

All this feigned "outrage" is pointless.
The main issue is that certain features which were listed for the products in question along with a with a Vista Certified logo are functional and available in Windows XP, however no longer function if you were to upgrade your OS to Vista.

This not because of a limitation of the hardware or vista, but because Creative deliberatly disabled those features you paid for at the driver level under vista to force you to have to pay again to buy a new product to get those features that your existing product was and is capable of doing.

Its a matter of people being pissed of not getting what they paid for and being lied to about a products features and capabilites.

What is worse is that Dan K alleges that Creative set it up so that it on purposely turns off features whenever it sees Vista as the OS.... one post @ Creative showed that you could trick the install into believing it was on XP, and all the functions were available again, and worked in a Vista environment.
