In case anyone else has same problems go to the sound drop down from control panel. Make the usb speaker the default device and click the properties button. Under 'enhancements' make sure the 'disable enhancements' button is checked then click okay. Speaker should work.

I'm trying to move files from old computer to new computer.


The easiest way is to use an USB memory stick, plug this USB memory stick into the XP computer and copy the files from the XP computer to the USB memory stick, then remove the USB memory stick and plug it into the Windows 7 computer and copy the files from the USB memory stick to the Windows 7 computer.

USB Mouse works, keyboard does not


You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

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:
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\wdma_usb.inf_9ce240de

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)...click 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 Test....it 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!!

I have the cosmi 20,000 recipies perogram in my old computer and the hard drive went out. I got a new Acer with Windows 7 and cannot get the old disk to load. The former computer was running Windows XP...


i think u are probably out of luck. this software looks like it came from the late 90s and will work with anything up to xp, but vista & win7 are a whole different ballgame. best solution, buy an old laptop with win98 or 2000 or xp super cheap on ebay, or beg one from a friend, and use ur software on it there in the kitchen. that's what i do with my old laptop. works great if u have room in the kitchen lol

also transfer ur fave recipes from 20,000 recipes to a recipe organizer program like mastercook, it's much much better for searching plus u can enter 1000s of new recipes from anywhere. u can get older versions of mastercook for $5 on ebay. version 8 works just great for me with winxp. (WARNING if ur interested in mastercook on ur NEW computer, get version 11, the older ones DON'T work w/Vista or win7.)
