    you mean x-fi sound cards? and no not all juust the first batch so to speak where affected im not shure who was to blame for the prob but the probem can be ficke via a system bios update or getting a x-fi with a newer firmware version on it i have one of the ones with the upated firmware

    btw i believe only the 2mb x-fis are affected by that incompatability :)

    edit: it's been a while sisnce i updated my sig lol

    I Never Cared For Any Nvidia Products!!

    I Can Only Guess At This,,but Ill Bet The Reason Theres A Incompatibility Issue With Audigy X-fi And Nvidia Sound Chips/nforce 4 Is Soley Due To Nvidia's Lust And Greed To Push Others Out Of There Way. The New Creative Audigy X-fi Is A Direct Threat To The New N-force4 Boards With Onboard Sound. That Means Less Money In Nvidia's Pocket.and After The Big "pissad Lies"nvidia Told To All There Geforce Series 6&7 Video Card Owners That There The Only Ones Who Supports Pixel Shader 3.0. And Every Single One Of There Series 6&7 Cards Failed Microsoft's Pixel Shader 3.0 Tests,,extremely Miserably!! A.t.i. Was Laughing In There Face. So Was I. I Don't Trust Anything Nvidia Says. And I Definitely Wouldn't Own Any Of There Products..even If You Paid Me 1000x The Value In Cash Of The Most Expensive 7800gtx 512,and Gave Me 3 Of Em To Boot.the Only Thing I Find Useful For Any Nvidia Video Card,,is A Hockey Puck!!
    I Hope Someday Us A.t.i. Fanatics Like Myself Will One Day See The Demise Of Nvidia. Too Add Insult To Injury,i'd Like To See A.t.i. Buy Em Out Of The Industry.
    Let Them Go Make Tower Cases.it's About The Only Thing I Think There Competent Enough To Do. I Hope That The Sales From The Creative Audigy X-fi Is So Overwhelmingly Good..it Forces Nvidia To Go To An Outside Source To Make The Silicone For There N-force Chipsets. Besides I Hear From Inside Sourcesi Have In The Industry,nvidia Uses 2nd & 3rd Choice Silicone&semi-conductors Sony,samsung,motorola.and Toshiba Wont Buy.no Wonder The Audio Quality Is At Best,miserable. The T.h.d. In The Last Series Of Chips From Nvidia Yeilded Some Rather Luaghable Audio Quality Reports. But Nvidia Doesn't Want Us,joe Blow Consumer To Know This. They Want To Pull The Wool Over Our Eyes,and Tell Us There Chipsets Is The Best In The Industry. Well When An Audigy 1 Sound Card Has A Better Signalto Noise Ratio To The New N-force 4 Boards,any Audioiphile's Ear's Will Hear It.mine Did. So Here Ill Just Stop Ranting About How Much Little Or No Respect Nvidia Has For The Consumer's That Pays There Bills. I'm Totally An A.t.i. Man. Ill Never Own No Video Card But Ati Or Sapphire. I Simply Despise Nvidia To Death After That Big Lie They Told In October Of 2005 When They Said There The Only Video Card Company To Have Pixel Shader 3.0 Support,then Microsoft And A Few 3rd Party Web Pages Ran The Tests And Every Single Nvidia Card Failed Every Single Individual Test In Microsoft's Whql Labs. After This, I Hope Someone Just Tells Nvidia To Get Out Of The Industry. I Have Never Despised Any Pc Company In My 25 Years Of Pc'ing Like I Do Nvidia!!! Besides A Hockey Puck,if You Tie 10 7800gtx's Together,you Can Safely Anchor A 25 Foot Cabin Cruiser Out At Sea. I'm Suprised Someone Hasn't Yet Sued Nvidia Over There Agp/pci-e Slot Snapping Out Of The Soldier Sockets From All There Weight. Sorry Folks. But I Had To Get This Off My Chest!! My Favorite Quote Is This-----"pha-q Nvidia!!!!" :) :)

    the incompatability is just that dude an incompatability i dont believe there has been any evidance of foul play here and it has been fixed already

    btw the nforce 4 chipset uses a 3rd party audio codec from realtek
