    The creative site mentions this problem. It could be in the Q & A section, not sure but I saw it somewhere on their site.

    You may want to try the 'latency patch' for VIA chipsets. It seems to have helped many with crackling Creatives.

    But it seems odd that both SC's would be exhibiting the same problems.

    Jz1397-4 is absolutely correct.

    this is a driver issue. d/l the new ones and your problem will be fixed.

    update your creative drivers and chipset drivers...should be fine after that
