So I got this new Audigy 2 and it is not installing drivers at all. I am running XP Pro. This is what I have done.
The two drivers not wanting to install are PCI Input and media controller. I have gotten them to install in safe mode but when i go to boot normal windows it locks at the splash screen. I have reinstalled windows and even updated to SP1 all a nogo. It is saying that the drivers are not "windows authenticated". Normal install using the Software provided only locks down at 95%, Hard lock or restart with nothing changed. I have integrated sound which has been disabled in the bios. Please if anyone has a clue or has heard of this issue let me know. Thanks
throw out that audigy2 and save your money. they do sound "nice" i guess..but i really dont think creative SB is cutting it anymore for their price to performance\quality ratio. even the people ive talked to that have gotten it installed on xp, crashes in simple mp3 playback and other operations editing operations and game play.. im sure they will fix this with updated drivers tho. but yea..i dont think they are worth it and i would take it back, get your money and get a tb santa cruz or fortissimo III for a third the price. plus creative now installs spyware with their drivers. so they def wont ever exist in my computer.
