How make work an extigy with windows 7? It is possible?

O.K., I solved this problem and got my SoundBlaster Extigy to work with Win 7 (64-bit machine). Here is what to do:

Easy part:
1. Search your system for the old USBAUDIO.sys driver:

2. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) to usb or floppy

Trickypart :

3. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
Rightclick USBAUDIO.sys (d.19-04-2008)> Unlocker >Choose Delete

4. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) from usb or floppy to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers

5. Reboot.

6. At reboot, Windows will block the Extigy from starting "because the manufacturer's software was known to cause problems." Go into Device Manager (Right click Start button, Click Control Panel, Click Hardware and Sound, Click Devices Manager (under Devices and Printers section). You should see the Sound Blaster Extigy listed under Sound, video and game controllers

7. Uninstall the Soundblaster Extigy in Device Manager (right click the device) Uninstall

8. Close Device Manager

9. Remove Extigy USB connector from laptop/computer for at least 10 secs. and Turn off Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers

10. Now reconnectthe USB,

11. Turn on Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers.....

12. Windows will now install the July 13 2009 device driver

13. Right click on Speaker icon in taskbar....Click Playback Devices...Extigy should appear in the window along with any other playback devices installed on your computer.

14. Click on Extigy...make it the Default Device

15. Then, disable the internal speakers (in my case it was RealTech) and any other playback devices.

16. Right click Extigy, select works!!

If you don't have the Nov 2, 2006 driver, email me and we'll figure out a way to get it to you.

Good luck!!

Driver cd is currepted

You could always download the drivers from the creative site, here is a link to a navigation menu of their products.

I gave you a general link because I'm not sure exactly which card is yours but if I am correct and its a Sound Blaster Audigy LS ev1938 then this is your page.

If this isn't you card or none of the drivers on here work for you please let me know and I'll search for the correct drivers for you.
