Yeah WinXP sees it but just says the device won't start. Hey FB I was wondering which did you install first the Gametheater or WinXP this may be my problem but I am afraid to reinstall XP since it is a legit copy and has been activated I dont know what will happen if I try to activate it again after reinstalling it.
BTW what mobo you using? I was thinking it could be some conflict with the 686b. From what I've seen a lot of ppl are having problems with this card and KG7's or Radeon's. I'm not saying there is a definite conflict cuz these are kinda popular components, but I'd like to narrow it down a bit.
I just upgraded to the new GTXP 6.1 setup this afternoon (yes, i'm gonna post a comparison this week, said i would).
In Windows XP Pro.
I pulled the audigy, booted up, removed all software and drivers related to it. Powered down. Plugged in the GTXP hardware. Powered up. Ran the install on the cd. Rebooted. Windows installed the drivers i installed last boot. Rebooted. Got a perfectly working card with the only exception being i had to go into MAD and knock the settings down from 24bit to 16bit in order to get anything but fuzz from winamp-). This is with included drivers....version 184.108.40.20657 dated 2/4/2002. Like i said, its the new one with 6.1 support. I'd say you've probably just got a bad board man.
Side note, so far so good on quality, but i'm not ready to dencounce the audigy yet, FatBurger. My tests are gonna be on Sony MDR-V700DJ headphones and Logitech Z-560 speakers. Yea...i know...but i bought the headphones when i was clueless...soon i'll be able to afford Seinhauser 600's...

I'm on my second GTXP on WinXP Home. I called Hercules Tech Support at 1-877-484-5536 (it's a bitch to get a tech) when I had a problem with my first one. One of the things that the tech had me do was uninstall all drivers and then install the latest drivers (4.10). After that and other steps, I RMA'd it to them and received a replacement in a couple of weeks. Doing pretty good since then, especially with the new drivers.
On a Hercules support note:
1. Their website has been down for a week.
2. When it was up a week ago, I could not find any way to email or fill out an online form for a problem I'm having. There used to be an online form, but I couldn't find it.
