    Creative has released the Beta 2.18.0001 driver for the majority of the SoundBlaster Audigy series under Windows XP and Vista. Confusingly titled with the same version number as the last official release, these drivers fix the missing Microphone option in the Surround Mixer which occurs as of the previous 2.18.0001 drivers.

    Creative has released the Beta 2.18.0006 driver for the majority of the SoundBlaster X-Fi series under Windows XP and Vista. These drivers fix several bugs, and also add Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect functionality, however these new features require the purchase of the Dolby Digital Live Pack.
