Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio- Problems

I have a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio (PCIe) and the latest driver (as far as i know). Ive had it for more than 8months now and just out of the blue, very randomly, sometimes it crashes while im playing music, through internet or itunes/media player.

Have you guys heard of a case like this? Does this happen to you too?
Whats wrong with my sound card- drivers or the actual card?
Has Creative always had this problem with their sound cards?

Thanks in advanced

Common. The ExtremeAudio is really a re-branded Audigy 2 card, and has ALWAYS had significant driver problems. Nevermind Creative isn't exactly known for its driver stability to begin with...
