As to the issues, unsure. I've always loathed Creative's drivers. Maybe go back and try some older versions? See if those will work?
Thank you. Unfortunately, I am afraid that's what I am going to have to do eventually. The reason I am trying so hard to hang on to this sound card is because I listen to a ton of music, and it sounds SO much better with the soundcard. Really like night and day. The clarity and "sharpness" of it is something I would really like not to lose.
