    im a bit confused... i recently got a new motherboard and cpu. And after its all put in and good for some reason my Audigy 2 is showing as a audigy 1.. as well as i cant install the drivers for a audigy 2 because it says it cant find the audigy 2.

    on the old motherboard the audigy 2 showed up.

    I emailed Creative about the X-Fi enhanced (fancy) control center and how it isn't available when you use the drivers off the site. What they said I had to do was install off the CD and then upgrade the drivers. Have you tried this?

    EDIT: If memory serves me correctly, I had a similiar issue on a client's comp. I think I ended up upgrading the drivers myself through device manager or something (been a while). I have to admit creative's drivers off the site seem to have issues.

    Now that I think of it maybe it can't find your Audigy 2 is becuase it's looking for the creative drivers and you have the windows ones (correct me if Im wrong).

    not sure. It works fine off the drivers of the cd.. so i havent messed with it too much. But i have tried using a driver off the web a few months ago and still didnt work to update it.
