it says no supported hardware found, when running the creative app... unless your PM fixes that too, in which case plz PM me a download link a little smaller than the source file.


P.S i found a list of supported hardware in one of the files
creative installer said:
DeviceDesc1=Sigmatel
Device1=HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8384

DeviceDesc2=ADI
Device2=HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_11D4

I'd like to chime in that this worked great for me with a less than a week old install of Server2008 x64 and the realtek 889A chipset. It is recognized as Realtek X-Fi in device manager now, and I have a noticeable increase in sound quality.

I have many mp3s on my machine and I'd be very interested in trying the Crystalizer, so if you get that going in Vista x64, I'd be happy to test it out for you!

I'll look into that tomorrow, which file did you find the info in? Shouldn't be too hard to put right, just a case of adding the device ID.

ED - just quickly tried reinstalling the ATi HDMI R2.03 driver, installed fine, no BSOD.

hardware list was under HADetect/pid.cab/HASdell.ini


I'm looking into third party modded files for Xfis (the audigy to Xfi mods) in case i can find working software there. unforutnately i cant afford to waste downloads trying every package, as i'm a poor australian with a download limit.

these drivers do nothing usefull over the stock realtek drivers under vista64, the cp apps do not work, they either refuse to install due to "lack of supported hardware" or they refuse to run for the same reasion.

These do not improove audio quility over the bumb stock realtek drivers, anybody saying they do is either experianceing the placebo effect OR has been using old ass realtek drivers and is hearing the diffrance that realtek themselves have made.

Ket if you want to get these working on vista heres a leigal FREE way to do that.

Server 2008(aka vista sp1 server) trial.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/trial-software.aspx
and
http://www.win2008workstation.com/wordpress/
http://converter.win2008workstation.com/

also you can get a valid MAK key from dreamspark with ease.

if your serious about making this work for people, then test on the os most geeks and gamers are moving to, thats now vista(server 2008 is just vista sp1 without all the pre-installed "bloat" )

well enjoy, i really dont see the value of these unless he can get the creative apps workin

Wow, these driver's are awesome, I never knew my onboard sound could sound so good, I can tell a big difference! Thanks Ket!:respect: BTW, these work perfectly on XP 64, along with the X-Fi MB utility.

the drivers do sound good and i had the latest drivers too 2.16

so unless 2.17 was a major improvement i am experiencing better sound quality and the drivers installed first time after a full uninstall of the older ones i had
