Soundblaster Live! Drivers

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by dudemeister, Sep 5, 2002.


  1. Hi,
    Does anybody know where to find drivers and software for the Soundblaster Live! card?
    I've lost my install CD and I need to reinstall the drivers and software.
    On creatives homepage you can only find updates to drivers and programs, but not the drivers themselves!!!
    Please help me before i go postal.:mad: :D

    You can download the CD image(?) here:

    ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp20501-21000/SP20920.exe - Compaq Compact CD

    Another download link:

    http://www.softnews.ro/public/cat/13/1/2/13-1-2-6.shtml


    The download is big (377 MB), so be sure to use a download manager.

    If it doesn't work, I can get more urls.

    Or get it via edonkey - www.edonkey2000.com

    As he said, you can't use their drivers without the CD. They're just updates.

    Another example of their horrible support.
     
  5. Thanks JMX!!!
    You've saved my day!:D

    Icez, on www.creativelabs.com I can only find updates to drivers but no drivers. Sad but true.

    Wh00t! That´s news to me. Granted it´s been a while since I last downloaded SB drivers, but it I used to be able to download the full drivers without problem.

    They´ve obviously changed this since I last downloaded from there.
