Topic: [REQ] sound blaster live (old) not supported in DriverPack Sound A 907rc1 (or later)

system: Win XP Pro SP3
only regular packs included no 3rd party packs
I found out the sound packs 907rc1 and also the newest nightlies 90903 dont work with Sound Blaster Live. But the release Sound A 805 does.
I didnt have internet access on this machine to get your hwid tool so I just wrote the IDs down:

PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0002&SUBSYS_80271102&REV_06
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0002&SUBSYS_80271102
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0002&CC_040100
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0002&CC_0401

Also for another pc wil you add drivers for the following devices to the new sound release please? Some time ago I tried the 8.05 releases but didnt work.

============
HDA Audio
============
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10DE&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_10DE0101&REV_1001\4&3927532E&0&0301: NVIDIA High Definition Audio
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_1106&DEV_0397&SUBSYS_18490397&REV_1000\4&3927532E&0&0001: VIA High Definition Audio

Ah crap!  That old Live card isn't supported by creative anymore either.  They only have the older driver from 2003.
These sound DriverPacks are getting so big, we may need to create a third C DriverPacks to handle all the "end-of-life" devices.
And both the nvidia/Via HDaudio HWIDs are supported by the latest nightly sound DriverPacks.

I changed your thread title to better reflect the issue.

I will keep watching and testing.
Big thank you.

Yeah I think that Sound C and making the Physx and language packs official is probably the next thing to be fixed for BASE... I have almost fixed the timeout issue on the update checker page and am kind of waiting on MD5 support on the server side before I "finish with that section of the code... BUT... i think it will be jsut as easy to add 3 packs as to add one... unfortuanately it is very difficult to add even one wink.

Re: [REQ] sound blaster live (old) not supported in DriverPack Sound A 907rc1 (or later)

Is there no driver for the old SB Live cards in DP_sound?
I miss the old v6.0.01.1304 (2.15.0004.4) driver from DP_Sound_A_wnt5_x86-32_805, it worked well.
I tried modding the inf for the latest audigy driver v6.0.01.1377 (2.18.0017.7), yet couldn't get it to work cold on one machine.  I tried it on another, that had an audigy already on it, removed the audigy, then installed the sb live with a modded inf & lo & behold, I had sound!
I wonder why.
If it could be made to work, wouldn't this be an elegant solution to combine audigy & sb live support in one driver - separate inf's?

Just a note that this is still not fixed in release 11.08.
...working on a better solution.

This should be fixed in a future version DriverPack Sound A 11.09b1
I restored the missing files to D\S\CR3 (closest match).
