HL2 updating S-drivers for 5.1 Speakers ingame

  1. Hi all.

    I´ve red almost any thread refering to this "2 Speaker only" prob with HL2 and WIN XP.

    And although I have updated the latest drivers including

    Direct X ver. 9.0c
    latest Audigy Driver I was able to update Audigy-win2k_xp.zip

    it still won't work at all in HL2.

    I'd like to update my Sound Drivers to Ver. But since the .exe seems to be corrupt (1 File could not be extracted) and through the installation the file it needs "ctaud2k.sys" I do not have neither on my HDD or my SB Live 5.1 CD
    I am unable to update my SB Live 5.1 to this Version.

    Has anyone an idea how I could get my Sound Drivers updated and i mean up to date so that I am able to play HL 2 with 5.1 or at least 4 Speakers instead of lame 2 Speakers ?

    Thx a lot for your attention and I hope for lot of posts :approve: .

    My System Specs

    WIN XP Prof. without any Updates
    P4 2,6 Gig
    1 Gig DDR-RAM
    Geforce 5600 128 DDR
    SB Live 5.1
    865P Neo Sound onboard but disabled

    Try installing the latest Live 5.1 Drivers instead of Audigy Drivers.
