Live! 5.1 digital (sb0220) creative drivers

Hi! first of all, i hope this post doesnt break any rules, if it does, i apologize, and please delete it!

i'll explain my problem:
I've received a sb0220 for free, but its the model that comes with no spdif outputs. A friend of mine has a live value, so i asked him if we could switch the cards. He uses the live mainly for gaming, so he doesn't want to mess with kx drivers, just use creative's.
the problem is that i received the card with no drivers cd, and i've read that creative doesnt support these cards, and i haven't found any usable xp drivers for it too. I don't want to pass a card without drivers to my friend (probably he wouldnt want to get that) so, the final question:

does someone have any working Live! 5.1 digital (sb0220) creative drivers that works with xp, or knows where can i find them?
i'd be so grateful if anyone can help me with this : )
thanks in advance : )

Your best bet, if it is a CL retail model and not an OEM version would be to order the replacement media directly from CL (using the serial number on the card itself). There are many different sb022x models and I am not sure that they all use the same installation CD. Aside from the above, there are probably copywrite issues preventing people from being able to share the software that is on the CD (and currently there does not seem to be any other way to get the drivers for these cards).

thanks for the response : )
the problem i have is that im not sure if its worth the money nor the time to get a new cd. (anyone knows how much would it cost?)
yes, i was thinking of a less legal way to get them (i really dont think im doing any harm to CL) its like if i just lost the cd.
As it seems that there are no drivers for it around the net, maybe the only way to get them would be someone zipping the drivers and sending them to me : /
I know i have no right to ask for this, so i wont.
But maybe someone could read this, be in a good mood, and think 'hell, im gonna help him with this', it could happen, couldnt it? : )
At least im trying : )
If anyone has some more information about this, i'd be glad to read it : ).
Thanks russ! : ) (and excuse my english)

I am not sure how much the replacement media is, but I cannot imageine it costing that much. It should be easy enough to call the sales line and find out the price.

I understood what you were getting at with your original post, and agree that technically there should be no reason why someone should not be able to send you the software, but aside from this, you would need more then just the drivers. You would need the application software as well (AudioHQ, etc), alltogether you are taking about 160MB zipped up (the drivers alone are 18.7MB zipped up).

mmm i think if i can install the drivers, i could use the normal live drivers to install the application software.
In fact, it seems that the only problem with normal live drivers is that they don't allow to install them because they cant find a sb live in the computer.
when i installed the normal drivers with both cards installed, everything was ok, i had both cards working perfectly, because they found the 4832 card.
I also got i working by installing the drivers with 4832, switching off, replace the card with the 0220, and swuitching on the computer.
that makes me think that both the drivers and the software of the live! value can be used with the 5.1, just that you cant install them. (maybe losing the 5.1, but thats not relevant to me), so i think i would only need the drivers. : )
thanks again for the interest, russ : )

I found a file on the internet that claims to be the sb0220 drivers, so you may want to give that a try.

Link removed as it no longer works.

many thanks russ, they worked! : ) (i'd swear that i already tried those, but it seems i didnt)
I also found a supposed sb0220 cd on emule, if it works i suppose that's the best option, but if it doesnt, thanks to you i have some working drivers : )
he would have to install apps separately, but maybe i could make something for that : )

Good, I am glad they worked for you. I really do not understand why they are not available on Creatives website (no drivers or manual or anything for these cards). I complained about it on thier message board, but it hasn't helped as of yet. More sb022x owners need to complain I guess.

I'm not sure what the commercial name of SB0220 is, but on the creative site you can find drivers for both the Live! 5.1 and the Live! 5.1 digital

Strangely enough the region/country selected on the main creative site sometimes changes wether drivers can be downloaded for the same card models (even if you are asking for english downloads !)


As for buying a replacement driver CD, they are in the creative shop (at least in the european one, couldn't find them in the us one) at 9.90Ђ (they used to be much cheaper a few years ago when i needed one)

The Live! 5.1 Digital on CL's web site is the OEM Dell version only. None of the drivers on CL's website work with these cards (the driver installtion cannot detect the newer hardware).

A friend of mine has a SB0220 working with the Audigy2 ZS drivers that I've patched myself. You can contact me if you're interested.

pro d is on a distinguished road

I have the same style problem at first a few years ago, I've try to find original drivers for a long time and then after read on few sources the same kind information about install drivers for this sound card (sb live 5.1 digital / sb022xa 10k1 [a000]) then I following to instructions and the final part of the decision of my 'driver problem' was install kxdriver..
in that case, want to say additional thanks a lot and respect to kx team for great work..
I can only advice to try one way to fix your problem its install wdm driver from one of 'sb audigy' models and of course then install kx driver, on this sb its working on 300% better than deffault, 4sure I've tested pres. updates vers. since 2005 and prove in this personally..
p.s.
hope its help to you..
bye/

Re: Live! 5.1 digital (sb0220) creative drivers

Are you sure it does not have any digital outputs? (i.e. it does not have the orange jack?). Live! 5.1 typically has an orange jack that has (both) analog center/LFE and 3 digital outputs.

I do not know if the ISO images are still around, but you might be able to find it (there used to be links to them in the Creative Labs forum)...
Are you sure it is a retail model and not an OEM model (for OEM models (e.g. Dell), you would have to get the drivers from the OEM).

In any case, to find the correct one for your card you need the exact model number...

i.e.
If it is a retail model, then it is probably not SB0220. AFAIK, there is no SB0220 retail model. (AFAIK) There is SB0229 / SB0228 / SB0226 / SB0224 / SB0223 / SB0222 for retail models (but they say SB0220 on the board).

To find the exact model number, you need check the serial number, or use a combination of the numbers from the front of the card, and the numbers from the back of the card: Finding the Model Number of Sound Blaster Products

e.g.
I have an SB0228. It says SB0220 on the board but the serial number is C6SB0228... (and combining the numbers from front and back (as in the above link) results in SB0228 as well).

Still needed SB0220 driver? I have SBLive_SupportPack_2_0 (which works perfectly for my sound card).
