To listen to CD audio, make sure that "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device" is checked for the CD-ROM drive.

If audio sounds distorted when watching a DVD, make sure DMA mode is selected for the Primary and Secondary IDE channels. (These can be set in the Device Manager.)

The Revolution driver may not be able to be dynamically loaded/unloaded without rebooting on some systems. Rebooting the system will restart the driver.

X2 and X3 Gamers please note that if you are using X2 or X3 while in Game Mode, re-opening the Control Panel shows circle surround enabled (when in fact it is X2 or X3). Check or re-set your settings.

Step 2 - Install Your Driver

Once you have downloaded your new driver, you'll need to install it. In Windows, use a built-in utility called Device Manager, which allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.

How to Open Device Manager

  • In Windows 11, Windows 10 & Windows 8.1, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager

  • In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager

  • In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager

  • In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button

How to Install a driver from Device Manager

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
