Uploader Notes

This took me for ever to find. It it does actually work. This is straight off of Creative Labs web site. There are several downloads, but this one is needed 1st. I couldn't get any of the patches to work, but this is all I ever needed anyway. I wanted to share this because it took me so long to find it. This is one of the few models that was not already uploaded. Enjoy!!!! DrcJr77

"Reviewing the comments I found most people didn't have a problem. So I tried it. Very easy to install, and it works perfect. Many thanks to whoever uploaded it. And for those wondering if they should try it. Do it if your model # maches."

"I can't believe that there has been so many downloads. I uploaded this file back in 2004 and thought noone would ever download it. I'm really glad this has helped so many people. I actually put together an old system for my sister the other day and used this same card and of course this driver. Kinda funny how things work. DrcJr77 @ everywhere"
