    Download the correct and current version of the audio drivers from the manufacturer s web site. Important: after you get through the installation process open the control panel for the sound card and configure your sound system setup (i.e. specify a 2 speaker system if that s what you have). It defaults to a 5.1 speaker setup setting which can produce unusual results when you are outputting to a 2.1 speaker system.

    I needed an optical output for audio because the sound circuit on the motherboard was very noisy. This card provided the outputs I needed and superb sound quality.

    Before I purchased the card after researching the Creative web site for linux drivers. The X-FI card was specifically mentioned. on the site as being usable with the drivers. When I attempted to compile the linux driver they was an error. (Note the driver should compile even without the hardware being present). When I sent I query to Creative s web site I was told that it was an oem card to contact the Computer manufacturer fro the drivers, and they only supported windows XP and vista. I am returning the card as it is useless without the drivers. In addition I will be very careful about purchasing a CREATIVE product in the future. From my response from creative customer support they neither had the desire nor the knowledge to help me.
    I must say that Amazon and the vendor are not at fault here as support should be offered by the manufacturer not the retailer. Also if they are not prepared to support the code don t put it on the website.
