Yah, but the problem is the PID software does not work. It tells me I'm not running Win7 and need to install it. I'm already running Win7. Check the Creative forum on this topic - NO ONE can get it to work. Creative is running a racket - it does NOT support Win7 x64.

I just got off the phone with Creative Tech support. They are acting like no such issue exists. They are lying through their teeth by not fixing their faulty driver or providing support for their customers.

My SB X-fi is working fine.

is your soundblaster stated in the list stated above? if yes, then try the driver

My card is not detected by this patch either. I have tried 2 different PCIE-slots

This patch tells me I don't have any creative devices on my system then shuts down? But the sound works and uses the windows drivers. I can't install the creative drivers because they tell me there is no X-fi card there. Even stranger this worked perfectly before I re-installed win 7. Device manager has it labeled high definition audio device [onboard sound is disabled]. I'm thinking my life was fine until Windows Seven, XP never gave me so much crap.

I'm anonymous from comment above. I had an idea to install XP on my backup drive which would detect the X-Fi and prove Windows Seven to be rubbish ---- XP didn't see the card either! So the problem is hardware. Apologies to Windows Seven!

Jimmy Loh said...

but your sound card work before you install win 7. so its not the sound card issue too. do you have the latest driver installed?

Creative failed badly with soundblaster axx 8, 10 and 20. They gave out more review units than sold. Many mils written off. Why? because it is not portable and the USB charger is not included. And confusing about needs little power or hardly any power. There was a global launch with relatively high initial production and unfortunately hardly any sales.

Here comes sound blaster axx 200. It is initially available in the US and CES and initially the sales is good. But it was a little late as it arrives near the end of holiday season. Now sales drop to very little. It is introduced in Singapore and IT Show and sells more than the US now. A few days back, it is launched in EU and many countries. It came a bit late as the interest has subsided. Why so late? Because of sound blaster axx 8, 10 and 20 failure so don't dare to ramp up production for immediate global launch.

Same problem for sound blaster roar. Not sure about demand, so low production. Now wants to ramp up but encounters problem or possibly sabotage. US launch and global launch delayed. Out of stock even in Singapore till at least 6 may. preorder cannot be fulfilled.

At one time, zii has servers for Skype like calls. If they were innovative enough to offer free sms like whatsapp that time, they would be worth billions today. Too bad.

One word: wasted

Technical Analysis said...

Technical analysis: 1st wave consolidation over. Anytime from now 2nd wave up will start, minimum target is 3.03.

Hmmm.....what reason? Not sure.
