    The 500MB package is not only the drivers, it include all the apps, DirectX 9.0b, Acrobat reader, ect...

    Yes, there is a decent chunk of fluff in there. I sent the whole deal off to Zardon to chew on. Here's one thing that kinda (no it did) piss me off.... after installing the apps, I was bombarded with AOL shit from here to kingdom come. :x

    I think they are only updating the older ones, and that can't make it smaller.

    No, not CMSS2. Stereo sound x2 is what got me back to these drivers. I thought Creative had done away with that great feature, and once I upgraded, my experience with my Audigy 2 just got a whole lot better.

    To install the 402 drivers to my sb live do I need to install the earlier (253&383) drivers?

    madrappers: I helped my friend just today updating the drivers to the 402 and he had the original SB Live drivers and it had no problem with them. It looks like it went fine for him. On the other hand my update I had the 383 drivers and had no problem too.

    Just wondering, is there any place hosting the application files yet. I heard that some still won't work on the SB Live series and that people are having troubles with their Audigy ones too but I'm hoping somebody has had some luck and that there is a place to get them. So far the only things I've seen listed is off of Edonkey and suff like that but those types of programs won't work fo me where I'm at right now even though I have a fast connection. It seems like Creative is slowly getting better with their drivers and things like that, I'm just glad its written for the most part as unified drivers and it can help a great card like the SB Live. The Audigy 2 383s help my card out and I think these 402s are even better, hope the rest of you are seeing a improvement also.

    greets.
    well, in my rig the new drivers don't work very well: it gives me a sound with excess chorus, even if chorus is set to 0%.

    btw:
    no one of you that got the apps wanna share it? bittorrent or something? maybe u should help the others just like others had helped you

    I am currently working on getting full installation, and I will hopefully have it and be able to to test it in a few days.
    Until then, I can only think of solutions from my head, can't try them.

    @Fire_Angel: I am glad to hear that. Did they work without patching?

    @HeartbreakKid: Do you have Audigy2 OEM or Retail (are the connectors on the back colored or golden)?

    @madrappers: Some people already answered this, but I will too. These drivers are totally different thing compared to previous, so:
    1. if you got the whole cd, you can uninstall older ones and install these
    2. if you got only the drivers, you should keep older apps

    @erickmOrillo: Which soundcard?

    If I have missed someone who wants to try it, please repost your question in this thread. Thanks to everyone posting their expiriences. With more testing we will have more sucessful installation guide and FAQ! :)

    Perhaps the guys who hacked this CD forgot about Audigy2 OEM PCI ID... But it's not all lost :)
    You can try to install drivers by using CTZAPXX.exe and apps one by one. Does any of that work?

    I dont know if they were patched, so I just ran ctcomp.exe in audio/setup folder, burned everything on a cd, and installed Drivers, AudioHQ, EaxConsole, SpeakerSetting, Mixer.
    Everything works fine.

    P.S.: Some one here put they whole CD up somewhere, rar-ed and splitted in 4 parts, and i downloaded them there, but know it looks like the links/the post are gone. :duh:
