hi robert, after trial and error, i manage to install part of the driver for my xtrememusic. However, it is still not working as it is giving me this error in device manager under device status. Any idea? "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system." edit : i've disabled my onboard sound , and in device manager, my card is showing as "Creative X-Fi Audio Processor (WDM)"
