    Wow Thanks [email protected]
    That was fast!

    Getting an error when I try to run the rared file and point to the extracted AUD2DRVL11021217.exe folder.

    Extracting earlier.bat
    Extracting i6comp.exe
    Extracting ZD51145.DLL
    CRC failed in ZD51145.DLL
    Unexpected end of archive

    I don't have winrar and extracted the exe file with winzip. I'm wondering if thats the cause of the error or is it the noob behind the keyboard ?

    I think that WinZIP doesn't support RAR3 archives.
    Try WinRAR 3 instead.

    You don't need to buy WinRAR to extract. Use evalution, it is not limited on that feature.

    Aye thats what I did . I extracted the exe file with rar then your file overwrote and everything installed perfectly through the ctzapxx. Setup failed didn't detect A2. I'm going to buy rar I think winzips soo limited and doesn't compress well. These drivers plus dx9 Cat 3 and mmc8 really make a huge difference in dvd playback . Everything looks and sounds so much better:D

    Thanks for your help Riv:cool:

    Everything installed nicely. The only problem I'm running into is with the Speaker Settings. When I try to run this it says, "The selected sound card is not supported by the application".

    Another guy said he had no problem running this though, and I've been able to still run my old Audigy Speaker Settings app, but if there's a way to get the new one running that would be great!

    So, you have Audigy. Which one (OEM, Player)? Os?
    And what it says?
    And Another question - have you already installed Necrosis's Pack (Audigy2 CD)? Because these are JUST updates.

    going to catch some zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

    It's an OEM Audigy1 under XP SP1. I did a full install of Necrosis's Pack and then rebooted and did the updates and installed the new driver.

    When I click on Creative Speaker Settings it says "The selected sound card is not supported by the application", and I can only click OK.

    After installing these on an Audigy1 should Audigy2 show up on device manager, volume control, etc? It still says Audigy1 on my computer after installing.

    No your card will still show as an Audigy 1.
    Your driver date should be 11/22/2002, and your driver version should be 5.12.1.323 if yer running XP/2000.

    so what improvments would I expect from this driver update , if I installed the set for my SB Live 5.1? would I get similar to a hacked driver that turns sb live to audigy?

    Installer Patch Updated

    This is just to let everyone know after I saw some posts that
    the exe was failing I updated then re-uploaded the patch.

    When this patch was originally written I was using
    WinRar 3.10 Beta 4. The updated file has now been
    written using the final release of WinRar 3.10.

    I hope this corrects the problems.
