I am having trouble installing a Creative Live Drive. There are two parts one being the soundcard SB0060 and the Live Drive is SB0010. I searched on driverguide.com and got the Live drive IR which is 'Full remote center for live drive ir'. This did not install fully so I am not sure what to get now. I know this is a legacy device but would be nice to use the front live drive panel. The soundcard itself is working nicely previous to me installing the live drive. Ultimately i do not know if i have installed it correctly. I do have the user guide that i downloaded but i am not sure the data cable is correct. The previous owner of this gave me all the bits without a driver and not much detail. The driver i got does not state which OS this is for.

Yep I have been through this page before and can't remember how but i got nowhere. Very confusing. Anyway trying again but not getting very far. So far if i have the right page there are nothing but updates/patches so far.....
OK one does say it can work independantly so i will try that. It is the Live drive uni pack...will let you know :0)

Well it seemed to install fine but no sound. I hope the cable was given is right as it seems too wide for the pins. I am talking about the ribbon cable.

Is there something wrong with the onboard sound? Make sure you have it disabled in the BIOS.

The sound hardware you're working with is fairly old. I'm surprised XP doesn't have built in drivers for it. The 1st thing you need to do is get the sound card to work properly. Don't worry about the Live Drive for the time being...leave it disconnected.

No nothing is wrong with the onboard sound. I just find for what i want which is some audio production that onboard sound is no good. Also i like the i/o on the front with the Live Drive part. Easy to put the mic into and headphones rather than reaching round the back and putting adapters on because they don't fit.
Soundonboard is disabled in the bios. Not long after i got this machine years back i had a pci soundcard so i am used to doing that. Much better sound.

The soundcard does work properly. It is just the front thing that is not. I have been using the soundcard on it's own for a month maybe as i didn't have the ribbon cable to connect them together til the other day.
