    Sound Blaster X-FI MB issues


    I recently installed Windows 8. My Creative suite is seen in the start screen, however when I try to initialize the console or anything else..nothing happens. The upgrader indicates I have the most recent version. I've been to Creatives site but cant find drivers for the X-FI MB. Anyone else have this issue?

    The Xfi MB is a software "enhancement" to the integrated sound module in your PC. Do you have the install program, to reinstall it? If you have a Dell, the My Dell Downloads should have the download for it. I had this on one of my PC's (provided by the motherboard vendor) but I didn't try to reinstall it on the PC that I upgraded to Win 8 as I never used the features.

Greetings everyone, I just received my new sound card and I'm excited to try it out. I've hooked it up and connected my headphones into the proper jack. I try out the audio and it's bloody awful, worse than on-board audio (which is not too bad). I don't know what's wrong, this (I hope) shouldn't...
