  1. I seem to have misplaced my CD for installing my sound blaster audigy drivers. :( And the soundblaster site doesnt have the drivers.. only the update tp the CD.. which i dont have. :(

    Is there any place i can get these drivers. (not all the programs that come on the CD.. just the drivers.) Is there anywhere i can get it?

    You help is greatly appreciated
    :)

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello =),

    It is not fun when you don't have drivers for hardware =/.

    What sound card do you have ?

    - Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer
    - Sound Blaster Audigy MP3
    - Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum
    - Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX

    creative.com does not have the right drivers ?

    hello =),

    I see what you mean . . . by base drivers . . .

    what operating system are you using ?

    I'll do my best to help you find the right drivers =)


    Windows does not detect the card and install its own auto
    drivers ?

    You will most likely find your answer in past posts . . .

    Drivers for SBLive 5.1 Player

    AND

    On new Audigy
    Drivers


    Hope I am helping !

    Re: :mad:

    I've searched for the installation drivers on the net and if they are out there, they're not easy to find. Seems like you should 1) Contact the shop/guy from where you bought the card, 2) Contact Creative and get a replacement CD or 3) Borrow one from a friend who as Audigy.
    Strange choice by Creative I think. I mean - if you have bought the card and your dog trashes the CD, you should be able to use your card without having to wait for a replacement CD.

    Extract the files in the zip you download & run the ctzap.exe file.
