Aha, so this is why my AudigyZS2 card has limited functionality in Vista compared to XP. The goddam drivers suck

Creative have been riding the "Monopoly Wave" for too long now. The time has come for some good competition to hopefully provide a better product and service.

I have had THREE Creative MP3 players die on me, not to mention two of my friends', too.

Lets hope this shakes them up a little!

Go look on newegg.com yourself... prices were just cut on some of Creative's top items... so low, it is almost tempting but then I just think about how bad Creative FAILED... don't want to buy something that may never see a driver update again

Lmao they screwed up bigtime now

I've been on to the beta drivers website

http://connect.creativelabs.com/default.aspx

looked at the 'report a driver issue' for the latest beta drivers

http://connect.creativelabs.com/beta.../AllItems.aspx

There is some angry people leaving abusive messages which is not on, but look at a reply from the creative coders after someone left a load of abuse

'Ok, I see a lot of negativity here. Please lets cut the bad talk. We try our best to get working drivers and sure we might not be the best coders but god knows you're really only paying for the low end cards anyway, if people want the professional stuff they would be getting the true pro stuff, its a get what you pay for thing, so don't complain so much, we'll get the drivers working eventually.'

I know they have a hard job but that response from the coders is just a bad as the abuse that people are hurling at them, and what do they mean 'but god knows you're really only paying for the low end cards anyway, if people want the professional stuff they would be getting the true pro stuff, its a get what you pay for thing, so don't complain so much, we'll get the drivers working eventually'

That just sounded terrible and has left me with an even worse perception with them who develop the drivers ....

Can someone from creative or a coder elaborate on this statement ?

Although selling it on eBay would be a good idea...

Hold crap - so is Creative's poor drivers for Vista the whole reason that their stock value is plummeting? I guess I don't feel so bad now for buying a bluegears card. Although I've used Creative cards since the early nineties, my beef with them was their mp3 players, which were terrible.
