Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

Spdif pins Hello, I?m trying to hook up SPDIF to my Asus motherboard P4S533. Problem is, the SPDIF connection on my mother board uses a 3 pin connector. And the SPDIF connection on my Sound Blaster Audigy sound card uses a 4 pin connector but only seems to use 3 pins?. Can I hook these 2 up? But I need to know what these pins are. Which is SPDIF in? out? And which is carrying volts? I couldn?t find this info anywhere on your website. Please let me know.

First of all when you got these pictures were they from *********** board?If they were did you wear a wrist bracelet to prevent Electro Static Discharge (ESD)? If not you may have just ruined your computer. But there is a chance you didn't. Next I am not positive but you might need to get a three pin SPDIF connector from Radio Shack. But I would try the one you have. See if it works. But I must warn you going inside your computer if you are not a technician can be very harmful to your computer. So if you take my advice Touch some part of metal on the outside edge so you are grounded to your computer.

P.S. Damage from ESD may not be right away. It can be months from when the computer was shocked. If my advice doesn't work tell me and i will give you much more help.

Hope this Helps.

I want sb0220 sound card


Hi

For Installing & Software purpose you can follow below steps provided by me

1. Removed RAM until I had left 2gb
2. Installed Daniel K driver (vers 1.5 google it)
3. Installed Kx driver (3550-x86 google it)
4. Added the rest of the RAM.
5. Soundcard works good with more the 2GB of RAM on WIN 7 x86

If you have kx driver and you don't get 5.1 sound go to control panel -> sounds -> chose "SPDIF/AC3 Output -> press Set as Default

& u can Download the best software if you have installedhardware from below link too.

Problems with audio controller


Hi,

To my knowledge there are five versions of this motherboard (P4S533, E, MX, VM & X), pls verify your particular board. In any case, for the sound driver of an Asus P4S533 in Windows XP, pls start here. In Select the Product, choose Motherboard, in Select Series, scroll down and select Socket 478 and in the Select Models, go down till your motherboard model is displayed. Click on the SEARCH button. You would then be prompted for what Operating System. Clicking on the SEARCH button would display all the drivers, expand Audio.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

RECORDING GUITAR USING AUDIOPHILE FIREWIRE AND GUITAR RIG 3


I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.
