Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 Driver for Windows Vista Download

Posted by David  •  Apr 22nd, 2007 10:41:41 am - Subscribe | Mood: tired | Music: No Music at this time

For all of you guys that have had no luck installing your Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 Driver on Windows Vista, here is a resolution that works!

After I installed Windows Vista I noticed that windows update did not support my Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 so I decided to look for an alternative driver. I tried the following programs that did NOT work.

  • SBL51_W9xME.exe - This download is a standalone package of Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 software meant for existing 5.1 card users who have lost their installation CD. It also includes the following Creative Audio software suite

  • ngocmd.exe - This applies to all Live! products, including OEM Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. editions, 24-bit, 5.1, and the rest. Vista 5308 may or may not find drivers on Windows Update, but even if it does, they will not support Digital Audio.

    So I went straight to my manufacture...Dell. I begain looking for my computer type, then by its model. I noticed that a old driver was avaliable.

    Direct Download from Dell Servers
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital

    (Note - You do not need a Dell to download this Driver, its from Creative)

    So I downloaded it - Right Clicked on it > Properties > Windows XP Compatibility > Apply > Ok. Then I double clicked and installed.

    Luckly, after 2 hours of searching I found a resolution to my audio problems window Sound Blaster Live 5.1 for Windows Vista. All of you that have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2, this should also work for you.

    Direct Download from Dell Servers
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2

    Be sure to follow the directions strictly as they are written in blue...it's not hard

    Here's a mirror of the file you have to extract:
    SBXF_PCDVT_LB_2_13_0012.exe

    And this WORKS FOR EVERYONE that has a Sound Blaster 5.1 Digital on Vista

    I tried the driver in XP Compatible mode and it told me that it could not find a SB Card inthe system, although there is one installed and loaded with the vista driver that only gives stero sound....any hints? sad.gif

    My recommendation would be to uninstall any audio drivers that may already be present from a past installation. Then proceed with the steps listed above.

    anonymous Says:
    May 14th, 2007

    hi David,

    Thanks for the response. On my first attempt, there was no drivers loaded. The card appeared in Device Manager with a yellow !

    avatar

    david Says:
    May 14th, 2007

    Ok try this, unless you already figured it out. Go to the device manager and uninstall any present drivers. Once that is complete, give the PC a reboot. One that is done make sure that you are installing the correct sound card driver. I've been through many installations of different sound cards in the past, and not all sound blasters are the same. Once that is done proceed. If possible, give me a full name of your soundcard.

    anonymous Says:
    May 15th, 2007

    Hi dude! Thanx but it's not working for me. I downlaoded this exe file and ran it in Win XP compatibility mode. The files are extracted and the setup program starts. But then without showing the wizard it says that a Creative sound blaster 5.1 was not found on my system. Anything i can do for this, please? Thanx a lot!!!!

    anonymous Says:
    May 15th, 2007

    hello from Portugal, I got the same message went for the ngocmd.exe witch i had already installed without sucess so i ran it again and now its working fine. make shure the plug & play OS is set to yes in your bios.

    May 20th, 2007

    ok so this is what i did:

    first i went to device manager and under other devices i uninstalled the "multimidea audio device". it didnt even recognize it as a sblive at this point. then i downloaded Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital driver and put it on xp compatability. then i installed. nothing happened though. i didnt get any errors. it never really asked me anything. it just extracted and then installed but my card still isnt recognized.

    anonymous Says:
    June 01st, 2007

    Okey,this is what I've done lately,but the problem still persists and this seems to be getting out-of-hand,and Microsoft & Creative should really spend a huge time & effort for fixing this huge problem.What I did was install a fresh copy of Vista Ultimate on my PC.After installing I've noticed immediately that my PC has no sound whatsoever,after investigating a bit in device manager (Which showed my sound device having that yellow thing.),and attempting to install my Sound Blaster Live! driver from the original cd (Which would not recognise the driver.).I have aslo tried you're suggestion of installing the driver posted in you're blog and putting it in XP mode compatible,but the problem still persists saying: "Setup could not detect any sound blaster audio card in your system."Any posts concerning this problem is a BIG thanks..

    david Says:

    Be sure to uninstall any existing driver that may have been installed prior, once that is done it should work.

    Hi!

    David, great work that you are at least making the effort. Unfortunately I have the same problem that it mentions a Soundblaster sound card could not be found.
    How can I determine the exact make and model of my card? I'm pretty sure it's a Live 5.1, but I'm afraid I'll have to pull it out of the machine first.

    I've also tried extracting the files to a folder and by installing the new drivers navigate to that folder. Didn't work either.
    When I did that while internet drivers (by MS I presume) where installed through "Update drivers" and then navigated to the unpacked information it mentioned that the drivers installed where up to date. (However the sound was still crap.)

    Any other ideas? Thanks!

    anonymous Says:

    Are you able to get 5.1 surround working?

    I'm using the KXproject drivers and after messing around for about an hour they're working okay.

    hey, thanks for your efforts, but im getting the same message: "setup was unable to detect and sound blaster card installed on your system"

    its a Sound blaster live! 5.1 and im running windows vista home edition

    any help would be appreciated.

    anonymous Says:
    June 08th, 2007

    Thanks for the tip at the top. I tried the steps that you outlined. Found that I had to do two more things for the driver to finally get installed:
    1) I made sure to uninstall the audio entry in Device Manager before installing the CD Driver
    2) I made sure that I went to the Dell/Drivers/R69382 folder and made sure that the file SBLA05W.exe was set to run in XP compatibility mode.
    Thanks again.

    anonymous Says:
    November 10th, 2007

    If you get the "unable to detect" error message, here's the fix (this has been a known fix for years - even for Windows XP):

    Install a program like WINRAR so you can right-click the downloaded .EXE and extract it to a folder. In the folder is another compressed folder called DRIVERS - extract that one too. Inside THAT folder is a program called "CTZAPXX". Run it - it will ask if you want to install the drivers (gee, you think we do after all this?). Once you accept the install, it will ask for a reboot. You should already have sound as it plays the Windows shut-down sound as it reboots. This has always worked for me on all machines!

    rapidshare.com/files/64356124/SBAX_2_12_0001_20.zip

    YOU CAN READ ALL INSTRUCTION AND PROBLEM SOLUTION ON MY ORIGINAL POST HERE:
    http://forums.creative.com/creativelabs/board/message?board.id=Vista&message.id=26559

    If you hear distortion sound, change speakers to 4 or 5.1

    Sounds in Windows Vista enviroment (music, mouse sounds,theme sounds,etc.) have only two channel, this is windows vista problem not hardware sound problem, multichannel sounds work only in OpenAL games how "Bioshock", "Prey" or DVD 5.1 surround sound movies.

    Note: For multichannel sounds in windows vista environment, you have to enable Speaker Fill option in control panel - sound enhancements setting in my naimadekar driver mod.

    I test multichannel 4 and 5.1 sounds successfully in Bioshock, prey, crysis and Virtua tennis 3 games!

    You can try too, other driver how Daniel_k mod this work great and have support of CMSS and Stereo Surround too! Here:

    Windows Vista and Windows 7 Users:

    Here's a RAR containing the drivers. Just unRAR and point your Device Manager driver updater to that directory:

    Awesome fix, just decided to switch from shitty onboard to my old Live 5.1 digital, your dell driver did the trick! Saved me a lot of BSODs too!

    I would recommend to the people that are not able to install or find the correct driver to download a copy of Windows 7. The compatability mode is pretty awesome.

    Assuming that Vista recognizes your card and it works fine with distortion, then the following should work well.
    1. Go to Start > Control Panel and click on Classic
    View.
    2. Double-click on Sound and single click on
    speakers.
    3. With Speakers now hilighted, click on the
    Configure button on the bottom left.
    4. Assuming you have two speakers and subwoofer,
    choose 7.1 Surround and click next.
    5. On the next screen, uncheck everything but the
    subwoofer and click Next.
    6. This screen leave only the Front left and right
    option checked.
    7. On the next screen, click Finished and back at the
    Sound screen, just click OK.
    8. Enjoy the sound! :-))

    installing srivers for vista is very simple ...

    just insert your Sound Blaster 5.1 CD in the rom

    go to device manager and update driver of your sound card
    in the update option give the location of your cd and your drivers will be automatically installed

    i am using sond blaster 5.1 with M5300 speakers and enjoying them a lot with vista

    so give it a try and reply .....

I run the cd for it but all i get is the blue window that asks which language and after i click english I get nothing. I have tried everything to find a driver online but no sucess gggrrrr.... there is no drivers for it at all on my computer or for my speakers any sujestions? and dont tell me get a new system my bf is way to cheap to do that. lol
    oh yeah and I am moderatly computer literate so step by step directions would be a great help.

    Any idea where to get win7 drivers for my sb 5.1 card?

    p.s. I have a realtek sound card onboard of my P5Q mainboard but just when I installed Windows 7, I have not much sound. Can't look a movie is someone talks in the room, LOL!!

    yeah I checked all the sliders, mixers and 80% sound dampeners in Win7. To no avail.

    I have a SB Live! and was trying to get it working on Windows 7 (this applies to Vista as well I imagine). There are no Win 7 or Vista drivers. But the Windows XP Universal driver pack DOES work. Goto the Creative labs website (support.creative.com) and search for this " LiveDrvUni" . Download and install. This is meant for XP but I guarantee it works, I just got it working on Win7.

    Just got this working 12/12/09 using some tips above summarized:

    Goto Creative's support page and search for "LiveDrvUni-Pack(ENG)" then download to desktop.

    Single right-click the executable icon on the desktop (the one you just downloaded), then single left click "Properties". Select "Compatibality" tab in the properties box and check box "Run this program in compatability mode for:" (I selected WinXp SP2).

    Apply/OK then double click the executable to run this old Creative install program. It may not work for everyone, but this install worked for my Win7 installation and kept working after reboot.

    I am having trouble finding a working driver for Windows 7 - 64 Bit for a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Audo Card Model# SB0100

    I downloaded driver file SBL_PC64DRVBETA_LB_2_03_0005.exe which I think is a 64 Bit Sound Blaster Live! update, but Windows 7 does not allow it to be installed because it is not a digitally signed driver. It also seems Creative is no longer supporting these old cards with new driver updates.

    I love the card though. I have bought more recent sound cards and the sound of this card is still much better than the more recent sound cards I have bought. So I would like to keep using it if possible.

    Are there any driver solutions?

    For all Windows 7 64bit users. This is my sollutions. It's a non official SB Driver and is a Uneversal generic sollution. Go to:

    h**p://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Creative-Sound-Blaster-Live-Live-5-1-kX-Driver-51003548-x64-Download-82308.html

    Dun forget to replace the "http" in the link.

    Install it. And it requests u to reboot. Do so. Then Right mouse click on the speaker on ur taskbar. Select playback devices > then select 1 of the 3 or 4 choices given where it says kX. U can identify it by selecting test. U will now hear sound form ur speak or in my case, dual sound card use for DJ mixing purposes.

    Good Luck, i hope this helps.

    wow - one of the most detailed posts i've come accross and is exactly what I needed. I managed to bring to life my old sound card of which i thought was dead and not only that, my sound on my mb was dead, so this is a real life saver. I'm using Vista, and found the forum and download as mentioned above to be the one that worked for me on my soundblaster 5.1 PCI card (originally pulled from my old xp machine).

    The loans suppose to be essential for guys, which are willing to organize their own company. As a fact, it's very easy to get a collateral loan.

    Different people in all countries receive the credit loans in different banks, just because this is comfortable.

    Have no a lot of money to buy a car? You should not worry, just because it's real to get the business loans to resolve such problems. Thence take a commercial loan to buy all you require.

    www.aeonity.com seems to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It offers a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to talk about is the most important thing. Wonderful!
