Sound Blaster Live OEM Model # SB0220

I am having a heck of a time trying to find the drivers for this card. I have taken the card out of the computer and visually inspected it to be sure of the model number. Card was purchased from Newegg a few weeks ago and was described as a Sound Blaster Live 5.1 OEM (SB0222). After inspection of the card,  the model # SB0220 was found easily and is a different number from the Newegg description of SB0222. Creative web site can't find any drivers for it using their driver search engine. I also believe the card is an audigy card but an Audigy Live 5.1 also is not listed on their driver page. What do I have and what drivers should I be looking for? TIA I have a creative sound blaster live 5.1 dolby digital pci sound card, The modle # is sb0220. I have a problem to find the drive.

Pci input device and mulitimedia audio controller please help


Hello michael_bilb

This is what comes up in device manager under "other devices" in windows xp.

The reason is that your computer uses creative sound blaster live 24bit sound card.

To get read of that you need to install the sound card driver. It can be downloaded from Dell support on their web site.

If you can not get it from dell try this link
http://support.creative.com/Products/product_list.aspx?catID=1&CatName=Sound+Blaster#

on the screen click on "live"
in the "archive products" column click on the last item "sound blaster lave value"
you should be able to download your driver from their.

Good luck

Every time my computer downloads updates the sound quits working


This is a fairly common problem, in particular with older machines.
Perhaps ones that have OEM sound cards (like Dell, HP, etc) that might be more or slightly different then the common retail versions.
(The same can happen with similar OEM video cards too).

What happens is that Windows Update incorrectly thinks it found a better sound driver for you. And will probably install it automatically for you if you chose the "Express" setting at the update web screen.
Instead run the "Custom" option and only install the important/urgent updates but don't check the "Hardware" update for the sound card.

To get your old sound card working again you might have to uninstall the sound driver that the update installed previously.
Go to "Control Pannel", "Add or Remove Programs" and check the box "Show Updates".
Find the sound driver and uninstall it.

If this still doesn't fix the problem go to the Computer manufacture's web site and down load the latest/last official sound card driver for your machine.
Some times this is complicated as a particular model can have more then one sound card offering.
If this is the case, download all of them.
Install the driver. If you get a message about "unsupported sound card" or similar, then try one of the other drivers (assuming there were multiple choices).

Hopefully you will be hearing sweet music again..

Sound Blaster Audigy Prob


Dear


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.

Enableing 2 sound cards


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.
