    Any help would really be appreciated!! I've got an SBLive! card, just downloaded the new XP drivers from the Sblive site yesterday, and everything is OK...except....*every* time I reboot I absolutely have to go into Control Panel->Sounds and re-select "Quadrophonic Speakers" in order to have my rear speakers turn on, otherwise only my 2 front speakers work. What is this BS? Is there no way to save the setting? How can I fix this, it's really really really horribly annoying!!
    P.S. Everything worked fine till i upgraded to XP.

    THanks a bunch!!!

    Have you enavled quadraphonic speakers in the Sound Blaster Control Panel too? If not, that is your problem...

    I had the same problem, here is what I did...

    Go into Windows Explorer and locate C:\Creative\Program folder. Locate and execute SpeakerPreset.exe. This will setup your speakers and will make the proper registry entries.
