I own a x-fi platinum card (platinum, nothing more) (Sound Blaster), recently installed a new OS (Win7), and now the front drive bay is no longer working. Any suggestions? I installed the newest SB drivers, and the web patch update, and still no luck. Everything is plugged in securely. Do I need some sort of cord to connect the pci card to the front drive bay (besides the ide cable)???
Oh yeah, duh, my SB is right in front of me. (mine is audigy 2 zs but I believe most all the platinums have very similar hookups.) There is also a SPDIF cable, its kinda like a usb header, 4x5 pins or something. It should be right next to the longer ribbon that looks like IDE.
Still no luck. Any other suggestions? could it be the cable? i know that there are several different cables that look similar - like the one with the pink line on it, or a server cable etc... something like this.
