I had installed the latest downloaded WinXP drivers usinng AUDDRVPACK.exe. AUDDRVPACK installs a low latency ASIO setting in Cubase. This is the Creative ASIO option in Audio settings.

However, I had also followed up this upgrade by also then installing ADGXPDrvUpdate.exe. ADGXPDrvUpdate installs another ASIO setting, namely. EMU10k ASIO. EMU10k ASIO seems to compete with Creative ASIO for resources and conflict.

The solution was to remove the the hardware driver by selecting:-

START > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Hardware > Creative SB >Audigy > Properties > Driver > Uninstall

I then ran AUDDRVPACK.exe. This installs the Creative ASIO setting only and works very well.

I hope this is of some help. I know how frustrating it can be. Incidentally, I now have this card connected to my old Live! Drive II and it works brilliantly.

PS. As usual, I had loads of help from Creative. They were very good.
