Creative now insists on making you pay for updated software. Just another way to screw over the people who pay their salary.

My recommendation is to pick up a Muse XL from Newegg for $16.

Are they really doing that? I didn't see anything like that on their website. Why would you want to pay for an upgrade for software that doesn't work to begin with?

I can't think of a good signature so I'll use this one.

I have a SB Live! card that does the same thing, locks with a constant tone. It happens to me when I am moving or accessing large files or running multimedia (WMP & WinAMP). I think it might be my IBM Deskstar 30GB 34GXP HDD. You don't by any chance have one of these HDDs or another IBM HDD?

First, Creative does not charge for updates, they will only charge you for a new CD if you want it shipped and do not want to download it!!!! If you need the new player it comes in an update that you can get from <A HREF="http://www.americas.creative.com/support/files/download..." target="_new">Creative</A>. Just select the programs that you need and you should be on your way.

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

Apparently they stopped that. I know it was like that a while ago.
