*sigh* Some people just don't get it. Is it a waste as you took offense to it? Is it a waste as you assumed I was talking about you? Or, it is just a waste as it isn't something you don't agree with? Lets see, 4 posts that they think it is a valid point and one that doesn't. (and didn't even take the time to read it.) Thanks for backing up my argument.

Not a great idea as a new user to come in a thread and post random nonsense and expect to not get called on it. There doesn't seem to be much issues with other drivers for other soudcards or hardware out there, my opinion.
Microsoft gave Creative Labs plenty of time to work through this with Betas and RC1 of Vista, FACT.

I have owned 4 times that many Creative products with nary a problem. Does that make me right or you?? Neither. It just means you have had some bad luck or I have had some good luck or both.

I dont tear into AMD and start a AMD hate thread because I have had some bad luck with their procs and motherboards. I especially dont rewrite their code and try to sell it to other consumers, thats lunacy.
did you bother to go look at the creative forums?? Look at how many people are pissed off at creative. And from what I can tell they are asking for money to download a driver set in order to get full functonality of their cards. Daniel_K is just a person who was trying to help a few people with his drivers. How would you feel if you bought a sound card but creative said you have to pay us 20$ extra to get optical sound and two types of 5.1 surround sound to work? My friend has one of the cards in question and as soon as he read this he downloaded Daniel_K's drivers because they allow him to use his card to its fullest.

Onboard sound, while it is lackluster compared to an x-fi (sound wise) onboard sound drivers WORK, and other sound card companies' drivers work, it's creatives' that suck. I've been wanting to get rid of my sound card for a while now. This whole daniel_k thing was the final straw for me.
As it is integrated of course it will work.

In basic words:

DirectSound is gone in Directx10 and Creative is trying to re use it.

There wasnt that many hate threads until yesterday my friend..once agian, a bunch of coattail riders.

You cannot steal, package up the stolen product as original, charge for said stollen product, and expect the offendee not to be ticked off.

Whether he was right or wrong with this drivers he has no right to steal, which is essentially what happened.

What are you talking about, pay 20 bucks?? My X-Fi works spectacularly.

If you are suppose to pay for some functionality then pay for it. Dont cry about it. All dan k did was upload a *torrent* because people didnt want to pay for a *game*.

I hope they throw him in jail for starting the pre teen uprising over nothing.

So you are saying you dont pay for games either because no one LIKES to fork out 50 bucks.

I didnt know it was Ok to steal because I was unhappy

I think that alot of people here have the wrong idea. Daniel_k was NOT selling the drivers as his own or anyone elses. He was however, accepting voulentary contributions.

The monies he may or may not have recieved, should not even be mentioned in this whole episode because they are of no consequence. He is not charging people for the drivers.
If people want to give him money, they can.
Working on the assumptions creative appear to be working on, an example would be " i just gave my mate 20 quid, and now the bank of england is telling him he cant accept it."
thats just retarded at best.

The reason that people are pissed off, is that this is a problem that has been simmering for a while.
like gas escaping from a pipe, it just needed a spark for the whole thing to blow up.

I have OpenAL and I don't get any noises with it. Will have you thought that those sound cards are different then creative.

I really don't understand why all these people are saying their soundcards don't work.....my X-fi extreme audio works PERFECTLY fine. I get 5.1 when watching movies, bluray and dvd alike, and i also get 5.1 in games.........what am i missing here?! the drivers work, i get sound, and its much better than my onboard......really really really i'm so effing confused right now.
