I got a sounblaster 1054live! value (CT4830) As far as I am aware this is not supported by win XP.

so...I am using the on-board audio on my 3k3a+. Only problem is the SB has 2 outputs 1 for front and 1 for rear channels and the on board has just the 1.

If I get a double adapter will that allow me to use all 4 speakers?

Any help appreciated
Go to www.creative.com pick any region, Europe, Asia, US - punch in CT4830 under download and you get drivers for XP. I would settle for driver package not all those programs.

Onboard might support more than 1 output, depends on what chip you have. Works with Realtek 650 anyway. You can check that too, www.realtek.com.tw , manual or Epox sites - Realtek update drivers often but since you have a sblive you should use that for best result I think.

I have the same speaker setup, just changed from Realtek 650 to an old sblive 1024Player as you (CT4760) Onboard really good, close to sblive - but a few issues with older games made me change.

I was being a bit dum-*** when I posted this one! I had downloaded the XP drivers from creative, XP was just not responding well to the soundcard and refused to allow me to install them. Anyway I got around it last night and it's all working fine.

thanks anyway mate
