    Could someone give me a working link to (daniel_k's support pack 3.6 for audigy). Everyone I find is either a pay site or a BS site that tries to trick you into downloading some BS software.

    That's not the program, if you go to the bottom of the page there is a link to a pay site.

    Windows Security warning during driver installation
    ---------------------------------------------------

    When prompted with:
    "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software"

    choose "Install this driver software anyway".



    OpenAL 2D benchmark in RightMark 3DSound crashes your system
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Due to a driver bug, your system will crash if you run the OpenAL 2D
    benchmark using 63 buffers. No problem With 62 or fewer buffers.

    OpenAL 3D and OpenAL 3D + EAX benchmarks are not affected.

    Details: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0x000000D1) - ctoss2k.sys



    There is no DirectSound hardware acceleration on Windows XP 64-bit (x64)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Audigy driver does not support 64-bit addressing, disabling the
    DirectSound hardware acceleration and causing multichannel sound to be
    played only in the stereo channels (front left/right).

    Workarounds:

    - install the 32-bit (x86) version of Windows XP.
    - limit to less than 4GB the amount of RAM available to Windows.
    - enable the "Memory Hole" setting in the BIOS Setup, if your motherboard
    supports it.



    Microphone issues on Windows 7 / Vista 64-bit (x64) with 4GB or more RAM
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Audigy driver does not support 64-bit addressing, resulting in random
    issues with the Microphone (static, robotic or distorted voice, white noise).

    Workarounds:

    - install the 32-bit (x86) version of Windows.
    - limit to less than 4GB the amount of RAM available to Windows.
    - enable the "Memory Hole" setting in the BIOS Setup, if your motherboard
    supports it.



    MediaSource DVD-Audio Player system requirements
    ------------------------------------------------

    - 32-bit edition of Windows 7 / Vista / XP

    - any Audigy 2, Audigy 2 ZS or Audigy 4 card



    Built-in Decoder on Windows 7 / Vista
    -------------------------------------

    To use the built-in decoder, make sure it is enabled in Audio Console.

    Select "SPDIF Out (Creative SB Audigy (WDM))" as the output device of
    your player and then configure the AC3/DTS filter to send the stream
    through SPDIF.

    When you restart your computer, the Tone settings (Bass and Treble)
    are not applied.

    Just readjust one of the controls one time per boot.



    Advanced EQ and Special FX not available on Windows 7 / Vista
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    These presets don't work on Windows 7 / Vista.



    There is no sound in games with OpenAL support on Windows XP
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Disable Advanced EQ and Special FX selecting "No effect" before running
    the game or program.



    Equalizer settings are lost
    ---------------------------

    When you run a game with OpenAL support or using Creative ALchemy, the
    Equalizer settings are lost.

    Just run Equalizer and the saved setting is loaded automatically.



    Tone settings are lost when speaker configuration is changed
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Bass and treble settings reset to their default values when speaker
    configuration is changed.



    CMSS Headphone on Windows 7 / Vista
    -----------------------------------

    To use the hardware CMSS you need to select "Disable all enhancements"
    in the "Enhancements" tab on:

    Playback Devices -> Speaker Properties

    Now check the Speaker configuration in "Playback devices".

    If it is Stereo, run Audio Console and change it to 4.1, 5.1 or 7.1
    and only after that change it to Headphones.

    This procedure ensures that CMSS(1) will work after a Windows restart,
    otherwise only CMSS2 will work.



    Microsoft Audio Home Theater Effects
    ------------------------------------

    This driver adds the following audio effects, which are available
    depending on the current speaker configuration:

    - Bass Management
    - Speaker Fill
    - Room Correction
    - Loudness Equalization
    - Bass Boost
    - Virtual Surround
    - Low Frequency Protection

    Some effects are also available for the "SPDIF Out" device.



    Windows MIDI Device Configuration Utility for Windows 7 / Vista
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Use this utility to change the MIDI playback device for 32-bit and
    64-bit applications.
