    I am running RC-1. I downloaded the sound blaster 24-bit driver from the
    creative site that is designed for RC-1. The driver says it installs fine
    but when checking the sound properties there are no playback devices, only
    recording devices. I've tried installing the drivers through Device Manager
    by extracing the soundblaster installer, but that did not work either. I
    also tried the XP drivers. The only drivers that work are the ones from
    November for build 5231 on the creative site, but they are a little sketchy
    still. ANY IDEAS?!!

    I am using the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum SLI motherboard with onboard
    Soundblaster 24-bit audio.

    This, from Creative, may be of some use...

    Microsoft's Windows Vista is currently a "beta" operating system. As
    such, Creative is unable to provide email or telephone support before
    its official release.

    We invite you to consult our Windows Vista FAQ:,Kb=ww_english_add,U={B8F60310-DA4F-11D3-94F4-00500463020E},Company={CEAE216D-8719-4C00-AC9F-03BC258F7B70},d=1130251443648,VARSET=ws:,case=7369

    for further information on Creative's support plans. This information

    James, I was able to get some functionality by starting in safe mode and
    then pointing device manager to the installer. Hope it works for you

    Ya, I just tried installing in safe mode and it recognized the drivers, but
    upon restarting into normal mode it gives me, no audio output device
