Then I installed both patches (which according to many they are the same patch) but only one of the patches ever worked for me. I haven't had any issues with my Zx card in well over a year I believe.
What patches? o.o

"sbx_fix" was one and the other was "Patch_110200xx_H10 (SB Zx)". I will attach them to this post.

I believe it was one of those patches that worked for me but I am not entirely definite.

It is interesting to note that those patches do the same exact thing, but only one of them works for me. I don't understand why one works and the other doesn't. I do know you have to restart your PC a few times before the patch takes effect though.

I believe sbx_fix is the proper one as the other one is not properly formatted. They both do the same thing and in my case i can import both to registry

If you do not game you are crazy

Oh! Thank you. I'll try.

But I would like to know, what exactly were these patches released for? Are they official? What is their purpose?

These patches are a few years old. I first implemented them like 3 or 4 years ago. I believe they were an "unofficial" release by someone who was once involved with Creative labs for an issue that plagued the Zx cards shortly after they first came out. But whatever the issue was or whatever they did these patches still work for many people.

That is strange. Almost 2020 and the problems aren't fixed with new drivers... x_x

I am not sure it is an issue with the Creative Drivers. Someone on one of these forums a while back explained the issues with sound cards and Windows, and it has more to do with Windows and the way they change the way with each update. It seems like every sound card manufacturer out there goes through issues with sound every so often.
