Hi.
I have a question. What is the difference between Sound A and Sound B driver pack?
Thank you !

Re: Sound driver pack

The contents.

Re: Sound driver pack

ROFL...

And that's what you get if you can't (or won't) read the clear, consise and readily available info we post...

on each download page there is a "Details" button 

Sound A -> http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/wind … 06/drivers
Sound B -> http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/wind … 06/drivers

there are also change-logs for each pack...

99% of our users include both (for that matter most people add all the main packs) ... and never give it a second thought.
Murphys Law must be applied here...
Whichever pack you didn't include will be the one you need for the computer you are currently working on.


Our goal has always been to include ALL drivers so they will be available for your installation... With that in mind the logical thing to do is to include ALL our packs... Then you will always have the drivers you need... If you really want to know what is in a pack that info is provided on the download pages big_smile.

Hi.

First of all, thanks for such a great work and I'm sorry but I can't even find a job here so I can't donate yet.

The man was asking a normal question... when one sees two things labeled A and B one thinks they are separated like that for a reason. Maybe they are grouped like that because you don't want a single archive to get too large, or maybe the second pack comprises drivers that are needed more rarely ?

DP Graphics separation has a decent explanation on the About page, maybe Sound can have one too. I've looked through the driver lists and can't figure out, but it would be useful to know if eg. DP Sound A is for dedicated sound boards and DP Sound B for integrated chips.

Have a nice day!

No, the sound DriverPacks don't follow that kind of pattern.  But I love the idea. smile
Sound A for "Add-in" cards and Sound B for "Built-in" chips.
Hmmm, I wonder what the file separation would be...

For now, DriverPack Sound A has Creative, Realtek & Via.  DriverPack Sound B supports all others.  It seemed appropriate at the time.

Re: Sound driver pack

Thank you for taking the time to answer although I know it's not a prioritary question on the forum. Now I understand better what the two sound driver packs contain and why many people choose to integrate both.

Re: Sound driver pack

The combo driver combines those two drivers into the one package and adds support for the new VT8235 southbridge. In addition further improvements have been made in subsequent release. Please refer to the file under installation instructions" in the table below for further information.

thanks overflow...quite a good explanation.

Re: Sound driver pack

Could you add the short piece of info regarding the separation of sound drivers you wrote in this thread http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic. … 315#p41315 to the about page which describes the history of the driverpacks and explains each of them, so that people who will have the same question will get the answer more quickly than by analyzing the driver listings ?

Re: Sound driver pack

the main reason, as you have already guessed, is to keep any one pack from getting huge...

the logic is two fold... your bandwith and ours ;D
