That sound blaster model is over 10 years old and is end of life ie: no offical drivers for new OS's.

You can try the kX Project drivers though

Time to upgrade to a new card.... 5.1 cards are pretty cheap these days.

hi there this is what i did and current setting that work great in win 7 64bit with 5.1

 Right click on KX manager and go to Multimedia properties and select the top one (SPDIF AC3 OUTPUT) then go to again to KX manager and select KX mixer in the window click on the top left speaker icon called Master in that window you can click on the top right speaker icon with the question mark next to it and that is named speaker setup... now all you have to do is select 5.1 and enjoy.

anyone else here that still have those old cards can still enjoy good sound in win7 ahahah im loving this sound and dont have to downgrade os



andy

Cheers. I have an audigy 2 ZS that I'm hoping will work with these drivers. It's a good card and I'd rather hang on to it (and use the 5.1 capability)

I'll give it a whirl

Soundblaster 5.1vx

Just wondering if you have and found them to be no good?

i have tried their drivers and did not worked quite as good as KX ones. so creativedrivers in windows 7 64 bit did not work or did not install at all... and when i managed to install vista drivers in win 7 the 5.1 setup did not work sound did not come from every speaker no matter what settings i tried but this other drivers worked like a charm.

cheers,

Cheers for the response!

I don't have a 5.1, but do have a 2zs so might look at using the KX drivers if I get around to sticking it in and stop using the realtek onboard.
