Currently, I'm using the creative audigy "value" on Windows XP. I have installed the CDROM that came /w the hardware. Although I have done so, my soundcard doesn't work properly. In soundmixer I can't save my settings (ie. speaker setting at 5.1 and it becomes 2 speakers when ever I reboot). I downloaded the new driver patch, but the problem is that I can't install it. For some reason the program keeps on asking me to install the original audigy cd install. But like I said I have done so, and it still refuses to install the driver. How can I remedy this problem? This is the message that I would get from the install pack "This web update requires you to pre-install the Sound Blaster Audigy from the original Installation Disc that is bundled with your product. Install this update only after you had done so. Update will exit now" But like I said I have done so... I think the problem here winXP. For some reason it will automatically overwrite the installed driver each time I reboot.
