Summary: My old sound blaster was good for Win XP, but I had to upgrade for Win Se7en. I have two HDD in my PC one with XP the other Se7en. When I want to jam on the media player, and like it load. The x-tra software that comes with this sound card makes it possible.
Summary: I needed to record from my sound system to my Dell Latitude CS laptop, (a P II, 400mh, 512mb memory,without line level inputs). Having only a mono mike input, I needed a good way to get a line level input. I could not find exact machine requirements for the Audigy Sound Card so I took a chance. When received, I installed the drivers and the software supplied on the installitation disk, without a problem.
Summary: Found out hard way that the "Stereo Mix/What U hear" function is non-existent on Windows 7. Here is the Support page from Creative that explains what sound cards are: [...] Now I'm out the $8 return fee from Amazon. Sucks.
