Im using P4 2.4 ASUS MB (Via chipset VT8237)
256MB
60GB HD
52x Asus CDrom
SB Live 24 bit
Hard disk is primary IDE, CD rom is secondary IDE masters

I have used old creative and Ectiva sound cards very wel in last years. I gat a SB Live 24bit new card.

I have a dual boot sys, I installed SB drivers in win98se and it worked well. no problem (although sound card specs didnot said its compatible with win98)

then I installed drivers to winXP sp2, it worked well untill i used cd rom.
whenever cd rom is reading data sound gets very distorted (sound is from Hard disk files; mp3 wav, ..). I used different players problem remain,in games the sound distorts when cd runs.
cant play a Audio CD, sound is too distorted.

I have changed the Sb's PCI slot and booted first the problem was gone, then restarted and problem remained.

try with and without that 4pin cable to sound card, no hope

I have questined creative support but no answer.

Please help me !!

I had the same problem with that card, Delete drivers, and boot normally. Its a PCI Plug/Play so you dont need to install any sound drivers. =)
