GA-X58A-UD3R MB - Where do I find the Dolby GUI Home Theater software?

Installed 64 bit Windows 7 and support software from MB CD including Realtek Audio drivers. Manual says to install Dolby GUI software to get more than just 2 speakers. Can't find it anywhere on the MB CD or the Gigabyte website. Where can I find it or download it?

  1. Should be in Control panel
    Hardware and Sound
    Realtek HD Audio Manager
    and the R2.51 audio drivers 59.38 MB 2010/08/13 are listed under downloads for your mobo
  2. Best answer
    Look for a Folder "Dolby" - {dvd}:\Utility\Dolby - Install the correct version DCC_x64 (64-bit) or DCC_x86 (32-bit)

    BTW - I have not found it necessary to use the audio setup allows for 7.1.

  4. Thanks for the REAL ANSWER. Gigabyte support not only didn't answer the question it replied the Dolby software isn't licensed under Windows 7.
    Some technical support. Software seems to work correctly under Windows 7.
    STRANGE: When serching the DVD Win 7 DID NOT FIND the Dolby directory using the search function on the root directory. Not sure why. XP would have found it immediately. THANKS BIGHANK

    WIN 7/Vista doesn't index those drives or system folders; you need to run Search Companion ~ XP. Regarding licensing - MS does license. Glad to hear it's running - Good Luck!
  7. It's a real problem that technology manufacturers just simply neglect to properly document important technical features. This mobo is highly advertised with it's Dolby Digital capabilities and they reference the "Dolby GUI Software" in the mobo manual. Yet it's nowhere to be found in the CD's interface application. Instead it's buried on the CD with no reference to the specific folder anywhere in their documentation. And the application itself is called cryptically named DCC_x64. Unless your a savvy technical person, it would be difficult to get Dolby working on this mobo. :??:
  8. Geez....upon further investigation, it turns out that you don't even need the Dolby GUI Software. Use the Realtek HD Audio Manager found in your quick link icons (right side of the windows status bar at the bottom of your screen). It's got everything to manage the speaker, effects and in/out's of your system. :pt1cable:
  9. Thanks to Jaquith, your answer is totally correct. Your help is greatly appreciated.
