System spec:

AMD Athlon 1.33GHz
Asus A7M266 Mobo
512MB PC2100 RAM
Creative 3D Blaster GeForce2 Pro 64MB v/c
Creative Soundblaster Live! 5.1 s/c
Adaptec 2940 SCSI card

plus other bits and pieces

First problem was when I tried to install the driver. It took several attempts to get the damn PC to cop-operate, but finally I managed to get the drive in an working.

Then, I thought I'd try to install LiveWare 3. But, whenever I try to install it, all I get is an empty dialogue box with YES/NO buttons.

Also, if I try to update the driver, I get "CAN'T FIND A LIVE 5.1 CARD", yet under Device Manager, I apparently have one.

What is going on?

(PS I have all the latest drivers/fixes for my MOBO - VIA 4-in-1, W98 Miniport driver, 1004a BIOS revison).

Try taking you card out, putting in to PCI Slot # 3 then reinstalling the drivers.

If it works for you then don't fix it.

The best way to get rid of all your present, as well as future, problems is to sell you card in Ebay and buy a Philips Acoustics Edge.

I have to agree with sticky mouse on this one, the Live sucks, I've known that for a while, but these other guys are just starting to realize it.

I'm so tired of cookies I'd settle for spam!
