Can't upgrade to Creative Play Centre 2.5

I recorded a track into Creative Recorder today but can't get it into Play Centre to work on it or transfer it to Sound Forge. It keeps saying I need to download Play Centre 2.5 but no upgrades for SB Live 5.1 Platinum are available anymore.

    Tha link just led to another link that said page not found, then it put up another page which just led back to Creative website which has no downloads for that version of Creative Play Centre 2.5 or anything at all related to SB live! Platinum. It also seems impossible to get to their help centre too via their website. They want all kinds of information that I can't give without practically dismantling my pc. It was quite some years ago that I bought it and, since my pc was reformatted after throwing a severe wobbly, I have no information from before that time. I might just have to ring them in US and see what they have to say:-) Thanks for trying though:-)

I cannot get my Alesis ADAT HD24 to work on Windows 7. The Vista drivers do not work and I cannot find anything that will work.

There are some fundamental driver support differences between windows 7 and vista. It doesn't appear that Alesis has release a windows 7 driver for their fireport and im not sure if they will.

You can more than likely. Look it up on the internet, there should be a diagram somewhere showing you how to take it apart.

No sound coming through when recording from hi fi tape to computer

This is actually simple to do. Connect the line out on your tape player to the line in on your computer. Then download a free program, from the net called Audacity at The program is totally free and works great. Some recording studios use this program. In the middle of the main Window on Audacity set it to record from Line in. This is from the small drop down menu next to the little microphone icon. Then hit the record button on Audacity and play your tape. You can record each song individually or you can record the whole side of the tape at once and separate the tracks when you save them. You can even use this program to clean up the sound on your recordings. I have transferred many of my tapes and records to CD using this process. I hope I have been helpful and good luck
