Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Prob
This usually happens to a PC with an Audigy card and uses a VIA chipset. The problem seems to be worse with the use of VIA Althlon chipsets but I can not concretely confirm that. Usually this will surface during driver installation with a message saying that there is no Audigy card installed. The solution that I found to work is to first manually install the card through device manager. In Control Panel->Systems->device manager, do a driver update by specifying the directory where you have extracted the Audigy drivers. This driver update will end up with a partially working driver that says "Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)" or "EMU10k1 audio". Once this is performed reinstall the driver normally by running setup.exe. If you can get the driver to partially install then the second time around the system will be able to recognize the installed audigy card. In 2003, Creative finally releaased updated drivers for SB Live! and Audigy. The new drivers should solve the above problem for most people.

If you have the disc which came with the motherboard, use it to install the audio controller. However, you can just go to device manager by either:
For Windows Vista and 7
- Click start -> type in "devmgmt.msc" on the startsearch box -> press Enter key
Fow Windows XP
- Click start -> Run -> Type "devmgmt.msc" on the box -> press Enter key
In device manager, right click on the "Unknown devices" and select "Update driver" button. Search the web to find and automatically install the audio driver. (Make sure that you have an internet connection.)
Err not sure but i think i remember trying to use 2 similar SBL cards and having nothing but problems with device manager.
Theoretically you should only need one of them , combined with your motherboards on-board audio.
This will enable you to play the two seperate samples , each exiting via its own lead to suit your mix console.
All you will need is windows media player using the standard on-board audio device
+ another similar player (configured to use the SB card via options)
Leave the on-board device set as the default audio device.
