Contraband Creative Drivers

After witnessing the recent events over at the Creative user forums, I have decided to help the cause and spread the drivers that Creative doesn't want their customers to use, I copied a post a found just before the moderators deleted it:


"Creative may have been wiped these drivers off the forums because they don't want us to have them, but simply searching will produce a few download links:

Dolby Digital Live for Creative X-Fi *(Beta 1)
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=796S73C8

Creative Alchemy for Audigy Cards 1.00.8 Universal
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JXYJA885


Download them and spread them far and wide."


Share them and if you have any of the other files that Creative has removed, please let me know and I will post them here :)

In Vista doesn't works for me :-(
Did i do something wrong?

JoeZ said...

nope it only works for XP at the moment. Hopefully they will do something about Vista soon.

has this daniel_k surfaced elsewhere yet? I'd be more than willing to donate towards a working DDL + X-Fi + Vista solution if he'd accept. It's something I've really needed and I cannot give up the i/o module so a Prelude is not an option.

Creative Petition said...

There's now a petition to demand that Creative provide better driver quality, stop selling mislabeled products, leave Daniel_K alone and support open source development.

Hi, I have a thread in an Italian Hardware forum where I linked all Vista's Daniel_K drivers and support pack with readme.. I dont'have only the "Crystalizer driver", where can I find them?

A huge thanks to all,

I've passed a link to this blog to everyone I know with a SB Live and later, and am personally archiving everything I can for prosperity (and potential distribution to those I run into in need).

I really didn't realize there were issues with Vista, as I refuse to upgrade to it (linux seems the better bet--I "tested" ultimate for less then 8 hours then wiped the HD).

This will likely be the only comment I leave publicly on this issue--other then signing the petition. Thanks again to all for trying to help keep these files available.
