Uploader Notes

I spent a lot of time looking for a Maestro 2E driver for Win2000 only to find out it was the same as the ES1978. I was having problems with a couple of newer games. The sound would become eratic and mostly unrecognizable. This driver cleared it up for me hope you have some luck also.

"Thank you! I can't say that enough! I got so sick of Microsh*t's Win2K driver for my built-in sound card (Toshiba 1555CDS). I know this thing has great speakers, but 9 times out of 10, I'd have to hit the "play" button in Winamp 5 or more times to get it to play to where it's not all "screechy" and crackly (treble clipped, bad). Now, with this new driver, not only does it
