(more) Sound Card Questions *sigh* - Page 4

post #31 of 38
Hmm, instead of using old methods of saving things, why not just have 2 hdds: one for Program Files and Windows, and the other for My Documents, Desktop, Setup Files, Driver setup files, saved games, etc.

When I first discovered this method, it made reformatting a breeze. I could reformat right now, and be back to where I am right now in a matter of like a few hours. I don't have to save very much: I just save my saved games on the D: hdd as well as my e-mails (Outlook XP data files), and then I make a screenshot of Services.msc, Add/Remove programs, and I'm off.

Oh, I also use TweakUI XP to change the default location of My Documents, and all subfolders, and also the Desktop. Then I use Regedit to change the default location of the folder in My Computer called "[Username]'s Documents", which still points to the C:\\ drive after using TweakUI XP.


Anyway, I'm rambling.

Woooooooooah Zombie thread tiiime...

So, i tried doing this earlier, attatching my front panel to my soundcard via the proprietry connector.. and basicallyfailed.

My case pins are much longer than the ones on the soundcard.. Anybody worked around this before, with minimal hassle? Are there any adapters or anything out there?

Well, I saw some workarounds when I used Google to help out, but they didn't look like minimal hassle kind of deals. But they did say that it wasn't hard. I can't find it now, but all I Googled was xtrememusic front panel connector.

From the looks of things, nobody makes a straight up adapter.. So it looks like i'll be using the headphone port on my volume hub for a while.. Cos i'll be damned if i'm climbing down behind my pc every time i want to use my headphones.

hmph.

Is this the best bet for a budget of around £50 ?
just wanted to let you know, thats an OEM card. It means does not come with any software. Whether or not you can use other software thats made for it and whatnot, I am not sure of. I was looking at the same card from geeks.com (xtreme music for $37) and am trying to figure out whether or not I can use software with it and if the software is important.

It's all gravy, baby. I knew what i was getting myself into.

It came in an envelope, with your standard driver discs (one for XP and one for Vista) and a sticker. Everything went fine. Nothing to worry about.


Re: my own little issue: i keep ending up with the same black and yellow webpage alongside the same old grainy image of a homebrew connector build instruction, which is all well and good, but at the moment i don't have the tools do takcle such a project. Will have to try when i'm not in uni any more.
