Sooner or later you'll be affected when they exacerbate these practices.
Good past man, totally agree, my X FI also agrees with you
I mean creative got too big for their boots tbh, they had this coming, it's just hillarious that they started this madness!!!

i have NEVER ONCE had a driver issure with my x-fi NEVER i use Vista Ultimate x64, everything works perfectly.


its stupid idiots that don't know how to maintain their computer, that have all the problems.

ya, i said it, 'wanna fight about it.
Ok, that is not even true. You just *happen* to be an exception. But many here (who ACTUALLY) know what they are doing, can't even get the features they paid for to even remotely work correctly. Dan_K was doing a service, and Creative was even supporting him, untill he put Creative to shame, and then they want him to stop. So i think we all are entitled to our opinions,but if the same opinions appears numerous times throughout the internet, there is a problem. And for some unknown reason, nothing is being done about it.

It was a good post except for the "more expensive" part.

I paid 150 for my Sound Blaster Live! 24 bit about 6 or 7 years ago and almost 200 for the Audigy 2 Zs Gamer about 4 years ago.

My X-Fi Xtreme Gamer was only 80. All three were purchased about 3 months after release and all are the gamer edition.

Well, I guess getting driver updates every other week just isnt enough for some people

Well there must be more *exceptions* than noobs because I have yet to have a single problem.

Oh yeah, to the bolded part. They obviously dont know what they are doing. That is an indication of improper workings of their cards. Stop defending those who know not how to run a computer.

Creative could raise the prices at any second and there's nothing anyone could do, instead of doing that though they're making low prices and not supporting their customers at all, yes prices have gone down but you are getting **** all support, and drivers which don't work, also by the time their next product comes out, that cheap soundcard you got won't even be supported anymore. Creative are dicks man, you can't deny it.
