Re: creative audigy advanced mb ,lack of duplex function

Did you change computers and Operating systems? Ifso does it have the same soundcard? are you monitoring with the hardware mixer or with software in the computer?

Re: creative audigy advanced mb ,lack of duplex function

Creative is a BAD company. They don't do full working audio drivers. (For Example Audigy4 and Windows Vista) Never buy Creative sound cards. They will not support the next operation system.

No Power to Control Center, Line inputs no longer appear in mixer

It's 80% from the AD_link cable between the internal driver and the Hub

Hope this helps

I paid 19.99$ for downloading Sound Blaster Audigy ADVANCED MB; I got no dot exe file to install. How do I get it?

It is possible that the files you got are all you need. They are probably in a driver directory and when you tell the computer to update the driver, point it to that directory and it will install.
If the card is already in your machine, in device manager, click on update driver. If you haven't yet installed the card, install it and when the computer starts it will ask for the driver. Point it to the directory where you downloaded the files.
Hope that works for you.
