    SB Audigy 2 : EAX Console, Surround Mixer and other software, how to get it without CD?

    hi,

    I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2, I bought my PC almost 2 years ago and I had everything installed on it, I didn't had any CD's. I installed the Sound Blaster Audigy 2 drivers but I can't find the application software such as the Surround Mixer, SoundFonts, EAX Console and other software, there only is.

    I have found the http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/download.asp and installed the drivers, however I can't install any applications from that site because it does only contain Updates for Applications, so I need the 'original' software, which I don't have. So I was wondering if somebody know a way how to get / install this software to get the most out of my PC?

    Thank you,

    well one good thing about creative is(it exists) they do allow sharing cd iso's of installation discs AS LONG AS THE IMAGE IS ORIGINAL. So not edited.

    So get a decent P2P program and search for the name of your card and words like Audigy 2 ? installation cd or iso img (CD image file extensions). You'll find it , download it and burn it on a CD-R and you've your cd. be shure to download the correct cd image.
    ( you need more info of your cardtype for what iso you need just Audigy2 is not enough, theire're a lot of different kinda A2's.(with or without Dolby DTS etc. etc.)Message Edited by www_96KHz_tk on 06-6-2005 07:29 AM

    You can install those eax4 advanced hd driver and once that's installed, search for this filename - ctpanel.exe and you can configure most of those setting of the sound card without those full version program with that file. Also, I have the iso of the CD and I can upload it to you. It's around 400mb so you need to provide me ftp option. PM me if you have those detail

    Well i do see that you use a Dutch windows.
    so...

    Hey gebruik gewoon een P2p programma. en ga zoeken op "Audigy 2 cd" . Download er een waarvan je vermoed dat ie overeenkomt met type van je geluidskaart en brand de gedownloade cd-image op een cd-rom. Dan heb je je eigen Audigy2 installation CD. (het is legaal om via P2P soundblaster installaties cd's aan te bieden als image, als ze maar origineel zijn en niet bewerkt).

    succes...

    p.s. hier vind je zo'n P2P programma(vraag ervaren gebruiker om het goed in te stellen als je het niet begrijpt)-> http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/emuleplus/eMulePlus-.d. Installer.exe?download

    Re: SB Audigy 2 : EAX Console, Surround Mixer and other software, how to get it without CD?

    www_96KHz_tk : I have downloaded eMule, and set it up correctly. I have downloaded the ISO's:
    "Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Zs Driver And Application Cd Multilanguage"
    and
    "Creative_Audigy_and_Li've_Driver_CD_(04.07.20 02_-_v5.2..244)"

    I tryed to install both of them, but I had an error:

    -----
    Setup could not detect any Sound Blaster Audio card on your system.

    Please ensure that your Sound Blaster hardware is properly installed before running this Setup program.

    Setup will now exit.
    ----

    everything is connected properly and I am certainly sure that I have a SB Audigy 2, I just don't know the exact type of it.

    Any suggestions how to fix this problem?
