It has pin-outs for HDMI and can do DTS interactive encoding, so I though PERFECT! Pop this into my media PC, connect the HDMI pinout to my GPU and I should be able to get true surround sound in games on my home theater!
Well, the good news, the hardware appears to be fine. (Connected the SDIF cable, and get signal) but the software side is NOT. I cannot get this card to properly install.
I have spent the last 2 nights trying everything I can think of to get the drivers to properly install, but no luck.
The problem is, none of the creative control software will detect the card. The card shows up in device manager. In Playback devices it only shows the digital outputs. (SPDIF & HDMI) but neither work. The card does not show its analog outputs.
Here is what I have tried:
Latest drivers from Creative's website.
PID detection fix pack from Creatives site. (Claims I dont have the card installed)
PAX drivers. (found topics suggesting this would work)
Dell drivers. (Dell has an older package listed on there site)
Disable on-board audio
clean off all drivers with Driver cleaner pro and try again.
All end in the exact same situation.
I have found many topics on Google of people having the same problem, but most end without a solution or end with the person using the original CD that came with the card and it somehow working.
Anybody have an X-Fi Titanium working on Windows 7 x64?
If so, what did you have to do to make it work? (Please don't say use the driver CD!! )
I have tried searching for an ISO of the drivers CD, but been unsucessful!
Any help would be appreciated! Would be great to get this thing working. Just glad I did NOT pay for this! Was considering putting it in my main rig first! Glad I stuck with the D2
