View Full Version : X-Fi extreme Music Microphone Problem -Please Help Me!

01-24-07, 10:53 AM
Hi all,

i have just purchased an OEM X-Fi extreme Music card, i'm having major problems getting the mic to work, i cannot find anywhere on the console to switch between mic input or digital i/o, the audio console is very basic & gives me no flashy options like mixers etc.

The card came with no drivers & the creative ones from the website only give me a very basic console setup.

The mic will not work at all & as i use voip every day it's driving me nuts, is there more software i can download to get full control of the i/o port?

I really love the sound quality of this card & i don't want to go back to my Audigy card just so i can use the mic!

Thansk in advance for any help you can give me, i've spent hours searching the net without success.

Have you tried the autoupdate @ soundblaster.com ? I have the x-fi extreme gamer and it worked flawlessly for me,you gotta use IE though since the update function doesnt support firefox yet.Or try this link,its a updated driver from the version off the cd (wich you oddly enough didnt get) Hope it works for you


EDIT: Found a manual for your card:


And this is the quickstart version :

To get my mic to work I had to go to Control Panel/Sound, Speech and Audio Devices/Sounds and Audio Devices, then click on 'Voice', then click on 'Volume', then switch from 'Line In' to 'Mic In'.

You could check there and see what your's is set at.
