I did, yeah. The above didn't work also :\ it installs normally as by your instructions, but it still doesn't recognize any audio devices..
Alright, apply this:

1. Open cmd.exe with Administrator rights
2. Type in:
"secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose"
3. Restart your computer when the process completes

-----------

Not sure if any of those infs are proper for you, but try them all again after applying the above fix from this post, if necessary.

Try any combinations of installing the driver, then applying the command. Rebooting. Trial and error type of thing. It should go one way or another.

Win 8 64 bit
Asus MB
Core i7 930

Sound card Creative SB X-fi
Drivers = SBXF_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0013.exe

-------------------------------------------------

Problem:

The drivers install and play fine. BUT, every once in a while, the sound stops. I've tried to look into the issue with troubleshooting but nothing is apparently wrong. I have to re install the drivers for the sound in the PC to work.

This has happened at least 4 times sine I began experimenting with Win 8 a few weeks ago. Again, I can't put my finger on the problem.

It is also not an issue of installing a new program that may or may not affect the drivers because the last time it happened, nothing had been installed when the sound went out.

Perhaps it is a driver issue, since these drivers were/are not for Win 8.

mcquiker, do you have a wireless adapter installed? If so, which is the exact name in the device manager?

Cool, I hear that. Just grasping at straws for ya. Does the sound stop all on its own?

And why do you have to re-install the driver?...meaning, what is the error if you don't? Does it make any crazy sounds, just not play, throw up an error box at all?

Actually, I do have a keyboard K350 /mouse M510 from Logitech with a wireless unifying USB receiver.

No, it just stops working.

I had the same set up under Win 7 and never had a problem.

Hey ya, that M510 is a good one. I'm using it right now too. I don't think that has anything to do with it since the latest driver is very good and has no issues at all.

Hi GMan, I apologize for not replying earlier, but the sound is fixed with the cmd entry you provided! Even though just 2 out of 3 speakers work, but regardless thank you very much for your help!

Hi,
Another hi-jacker here :)
I have just upgraded to Win 8 CP (32 bit) from Win XP (32 bit) and can't get my sound blaster x-fi xtreme audio card working...
I tried following the steps earlier in the thread but no success. I have tried the latest drivers but get the same error message as the original poster.
Is there anything you can suggest Gman?
Many thanks for any response in advance! :)

Did you run the command above in the elevated prompt? If so, tell me your hardware id info as others have.

If your Windows Audio service is not starting, you never ran the command to fix it, like I asked above.

The link I gave you will absolutely not have an issues whatsoever in the least, to install. If it doesn't run well straight off after install, run the command and you're set.

Oh. I thought I did. So if I missed that then you're saying all I have to do is make sure I have gone through the whole process and it will definitely work? That is great if so :)

Hi Gman,
after reading this thread, you seem to be the man to talk to regarding these matters.
I tried the Creative.zip and both .inf files to no avail, but my Hardware ID is different from others (I think I have the Xtreme Music). The info for my card is

PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&SUBSYS_00331102&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&SUBSYS_00331102
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&CC_040100
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&CC_0401

Could you work your magic on this card as well?

Thanks a lot

Hello and welcome. Yes, I've already checked on it and can. But before I do anything, I need to know if you're running 32 or 64 bit Windows.

If 64 bit, still can be done, but there will be hoops to jump through. I'll explain if necessary.

Ah yes of course, it's 32 bit. Thanks!

Download from the link, then extract it to a folder.

Open device manager, right click on the Creative needing the driver (or "Unknown Device") and choose Update driver software...Browse my computer...Let me pick...Have Disk...Browse

Now navigate to the extracted folder and double click on wdma_emu.inf.

Hit ok then next and it will install. It's good because the drivers are all from 5/5/2010 - you don't want to be dealing with very old Creative drivers on 7 or 8. By the way, this will also work well for XP, Vista and 7.

Any issues at all, let me know and I'll fix it up.

Enjoy! You're welcome.
