post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
in my creative SB live 24bit (7.1ch.) sound card there is, a white port with about 12 pins. at a corner of the card ( along with ic and transisters)
they have said nothing about it in the manual.
I have seen this port in many of Audigy cards also.

.What is this port ??

Thanks.

Users of Audigy might know whats this port.

How Audigy4 or other models with front panel plug to the card ??

Is it the one I circled below?

Well if it is, its a Creative Proprietary connector, which makes a proprietary connection to other creative devices. But I really don't know what its used for. Most of the Front I/O panels use the IDE looking cable. I think they just put it there for fun I guess, or maybe a way they can load the programming to the cards in the manufacturing plant. I havn't seen anything that uses it thus far.
