    I've looked high low for the links for the install CD for these drivers, and am unable to find any good working links.

    As far as the drivers go...by themselves I hear/see little or no improvement with sound quality or performance in games. Honestly the "golden" reason for having these is for the EQ & the added features in AudioHQ. If you read the Creative Audigy newsgroup there has been a number of people having issues with these drivers taking out EAX functions in games. So beware you are risking hosing your install using these drivers.

    Thanks for the info Necrosis.

    Are the issues card-specific or random, from system to system?

    I'm uncertain..how it seems mainly to be with Audigy 1 users. However, doing a roll back to the 383's seems to solve the problem.

    Could be the problem that Necrosis mentioned.

    I might be able to try it at a friend who has Audigy1, so I can verify that.

    I have EAX in my games (SOFII, UT2003, Thief 2, etc. etc.)

    Where should I see if EAX is truly enabled or not?

    In game options (in UT2k3 for example, it's in Audio/Sound options or something like that - I can't verify because I don't have it installed).

    If you play Warcraft III, it's under Options/Sound; If you play Diablo 2, it's under Audio Options. Every game should have it und some Audio/Sound options thing :)

    You can give them a try, but look at Necrosis's post - these drivers have some problems with Audigy1 (but who knows, you might get lucky:)).

    Hey guys please read my post in this forum. These drivers work and the sound is much better than what comes from Audigy 1 and or 2. Mr. Necrosis seems to have a problem. If you just want the newest drivers of ZS to run on Audigy, just unpack it to a seperate folder and patch it with 'ctcomp' that's it .

    I don't have a problem Purush, and these drivers work fine for me as well. However, if you had read the Creative Newsgroup you would know there is a quite a few people have issues with these drivers.

    There is so much talk about Audigy ZS fixed CD installation, but none seems to have a good link to download. Could someone give us a link please. There is a link in the 3D Sound Surge web site, but the download speed is too slow and cuts of after spending 8 hrs trying to download the file which appears to around 400MB. I am sure there are a lot of us waiting to install this fix over Audigy 1 or 2. Get cracking guys and help us

    I have a link

    Connect to FTP://156.17.42.175. The login is SB and no password required. The speed is arround 35-36 Kb/s and it takes 4-5 hours to get but has the entire CD. I instaled it on my Audigy 2 and it works fine, except the graphic equalizer and the DTS decodind function. If anybody can help me with thatI would apreciate. Thank You.

    Many users reported Graphic EQ not working. Perhaps it's a bug in the drivers or intended limitation.

    I am not sure about the other thing.
