I remember this. I remember freaking out because I thought I'd lost my original driver cd. Of course you needed that so you could apply the updates from their website.

Thankfully, I haven't owned an Audigy since that original Audigy1. Never fell for it again like most people.

Using my Karajan audio still. Its Azalia based, and works excellent until someone releases a worthy audio card not based on any Creative tech, nor in any way dependant on their software support.

That means, don't buy the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude.

your solutions, while fine for much, do not support hardware acceleration and eax. it is a large, permanent hit in a multiplayer game like BF2142. without it, no matter the cpu, sound will get f'd up and make you skip frames from time to time.
