Sound Blaster Live! 2003

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently got a sound blaster Live! card from the good ol year 2003 for free.. I didn't know 100% that it worked so I put it into my computer and when XP booted up it came up with the found new hardware wizard because XP didn't have the drivers I dialed to the internet (damn you dial-up!) and let it do it's thing about 25 minutes later I canceled it because it was taking too long.. So I went to creative labs website looking for drivers. Not knowing exactially what card it was I tried entering the model number into the box that allows you to do so. nothing was returned, so I went through saying it was just a normal sound blaster live! card (thats all I could gather from it) it said that the card had reached the end of it's "product life" and there was no drivers for download... Pissed.. So I hit the google looking for old drivers. I found a download.. 25 megs for soundcard drivers! As I said earlier I am on dial-up so I had a 2 hour ETA for the download.

So I want to know if anyone knows some smaller drivers that work on my card that I could download. maybe user created?

P.S. this card has the digital out on it so if you know drivers I want all the ports to work on it..

Will here is the drivers from creative site. it's 23 meg.
You can see if you have a friend that has dsl or cable. Download it and burn it on a cd.
