Yeah grab the file from American Zombie's link. Your better off getting the lastest from the manufactures site rather then the CD anyways. :)

XP has native drivers for SB Live 5.1, I got one on one of my Daughter's computers. XP will load them on it's own once ya put the card in and reboot.

Now if you're looking for the whole suite of goodies that come with the sound card, that's a different story.

What I posted then is the correct file and includes the patch.

Yeah, but no.

You need to have the Creative Play Center or Creative Disc Detector or Creative Disc Maker or Creative CD Burner, in order to use them. They are all updates.

Was this an OEM or retail box?
If yes, email creative, tell them there was no CD in the box, Best Buy treated you very poorly, and ask them to mail a CD or for a place to download an ISO you can burn. Or just return the damn thing and tell the manager your lucky you don't file business fraud charges against him. Then email Best Buy corporate with the story. Best Buy has been slammed for bad business practices by several states.

Was it a returned item on the junk table?
You're screwed, those usually sell "as is". Ask around for someone with one you can burn a copy of the CD from.

No, this is full driver install and that is why it is 23MB. My other PC has Live OEM card and this is what I install on a fresh XP install.

It says the following if you look at the package details.
This package can be installed independently and does not require other applications in the LiveDrvUni-Pack to be downloaded.

K buddy. This is what you need. It will take a little figuring out (it did for me), but eventually you'll make it work.

I did this two weeks ago, tried the SB drivers for a while, and realized why I used the KX drivers in the first place.

KX Driver Download

You'll like these better. Creative's drivers anger me, but the KX drivers are easy like Sunday. It has all the functions (and more) that the Creative Driver cd suite can cover, and there's no 300 MB downloads.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
