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.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
