I was wondering if there was anyone with an ASUS A7V133 and sound blaster live platinum 5.1 that was having problems. I was thinking about purchasing soundblaster live platinum 5.1 soon, but I see that there are some posts stating that the SB cards and the 686B south bridge on this motherboard have problems? Can someone enlighten me on this subject? Are there patches to fix this? What kinds of problems exactly does it cause? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Is there another sound card out there just as good as SB live platinum 5.1 that I wouldn't have any problems with? Thanks
The latest 4-in-1's are said to fix the 686B South Bridge problem with SB Live! Soundcards, as well as the ~400 Mb file transfer bug.
