Vista no longer supports a number of older technologies owing to fundamental changes in it's internal design.

i) The best solution is to replace the sound card with a device which IS supported in Windows Vista

ii) The alternative would to be evaluate your software use, and consider if Linux and Crossover products
(based on Wine) meet your needs. Linux continues to support the chipset used by the Live 5.1 Card.

Creative doesn't have Vista drivers for that video card so unless you use some hacked drivers it probably wont work.

I need driver sound card Creative Blaster Live! 5.1 series (WDM) for Windows 7? Thx


I found this information, copied it from the Vista Forums, but the post was copied from Creative's site .... so its 3rd hand information, at best!
=========================
(from the Creative forums - I just copied/pasted - jh)

For those of you with live 5.1 problems, here you go!! Worked for me!

From the post @ http://neosmart.net/blog/archives/104:

Creative Sound Blaster Live! Series
This applies to all Live! products, including OEM Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. editions, 24-bit, 5.1, and the rest. Vista 5308 may or may not find drivers on Windows Update, but even if it does, they will not support Digital Audio.

1. Grab the ngoHQ modded drivers from

http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=Files&a...e&dwn_id=20

2. Run the installer in XP compatibility mode.
3. Restart your computer.
4. In the audio properties in the Control Panel, to enable digital audio go to the Other tab and check digital output.
5. Play with the Format tab to get the audio quality to your liking.
6. You may need to restart to ensure that digital audio works after changing that option.




I'm not 100% sure if creative is going to be upset that I posted this, but since they have no plans to support the card in Vista, I can't see a big problem with it.

BTW, I tried the KX driver and I couldn't get it to work, so for anyone with that problem this should be your solution.

I cant find creative sb live card for vista


Sorry, this is not really a solution, but it appears Creative considered these products to be 'End of Life' in early 2008, and never developed a driver for Vista. Good luck!
