So, earlier today, the little door covering the optical-out port of my (Yeah... I know...) Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty card broke, and now there is absolutely no way to get a TOSlink cable to stay plugged in. On their site reads the following line:


"Damage caused by normal wear and tear, abnormal use or conditions, misuse, neglect, abuse, accident ... " - blah blah blah, that stuff is NOT covered by warranty.

Given that my situation isn't normal wear and tear, the conditions are completely standard (abnormal use/conditions), that I wasn't rough with it (misuse/neglect/abuse) and didn't drop it or anything (accident), I would THINK I'm good to RMA it. I just would rather not spend a few bucks and waste my time shipping it to find out this kind of thing isn't covered.

Assuming I get an RMA, I'll likely sell whatever I get to some other unfortunate soul and pick up an HT Omega Striker (or any other good card for ~100 with an optical out port). Feel free to recommend a card anyway, just don't bother with the Xonar STX - I don't feel like dropping $200 on a sound card at the moment. It would be used for music (wide variety of genre's), games and Ventrillo - VERY little to no content creation/etc.

So, in the end, does anyone think I'd be good to send it in? Or would I just be wasting my time and money? Thanks
