ok, back in the day i bought my first computer. was in 99, a dell. i decided today that i could prolly use some of its old components with my old but newer computer. i haven't used the dell in like 4 years cuz it stopped working, most likely due to hard drive failure. well, the first part i decided to work with, was the old sound blaster live card. looking at the sound blaster site, it seems to be a Sound Blaster Live! Value, model # CT4780. now, since its been such a long time, i don't remember what cords came with it, though i can easily figure out where to put them. i do have a black cord, and i'm betting there is a green one too, since there is a green insert in the card ;-), though i don't see one anywhere(i'm a packrat at times). so i'm also wondering, is it plausible to get such an old card into a newer xp system? currently i just have an onboard nvidia nforce audio, and i'd have to take out the drivers for that, but i also couldn't find any drivers for this card on the sound blaster site. i did hook up the card however, and my comp was "plug and play" ready for it and had its own drivers i guess. though my cpu's fan started making a weird sound after i plugged in the card. well, tell me what ya think, way past my bedtime so sorry if i'm not coherent!
