Problem with a SB live 5.1 digital and Windows XP

  1. Can somebody help me plz.

    I recently buy a Creative SB live! 5.1 digital, and when i install it on my computer, and WINXP detects it, it doesn't know what kind of card it is... so ..i put on the CD with the original drivers... and when i try to install them, The installation program tells me " There Are no Creative Products" installed on your system"...

    Then i try to "re-install" the drivers, but this time, without the "auto.run" program and seeking the drivers directly from the CD ..and then it work...

    But ... i can't install any of the programas embedded with the card :confused:

    Anybody knows why this is happening??

    PS: i have Winxp pro with sp1 ...Amd athlon 2.5+, mobo Abit nf7, 512 corsair ram and so... :( )

    Thankx..i have this doubt...

    Sorry. I didnt know those links would time out. It just said that there can be problems installing the SB Live software because whats on the CD came out before XP. Im assuming you're using XP. Go to the Creative site and download the latest drivers.
