Uploader Notes

This is for the Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Digital sound card (OEM) that Creative Labs dont support on their website. I couldnt find the drivers on the internet but I ended up finding my installation CD and I know a lot of people have trouble finding these drivers. These drivers will work when other Creative Labs drivers say "could not detect any sound blaster card in your system".

"I was in search for a working driver for this card. A CD came with my card, too. But the driver on that is not working. So after kx drivers... Many this and many that... I found this plain driver and it works just out of the box. You are my hero!"
