Yeah thats what I heard.. I used the new drivers on the Creative site and it all seems to be working good now. It was a must because of I wanted to hook up my speakers to it and the headphone jack wont do....lol
Understand completely. If it is working good for you now - I may be going this route. Depends as I am about to pick up a smart card reader (CAC style) and if this uses my PCMCIA bay - I may have to go with one of the USB style sound cards - or vice versa.
Will continue to watch your responses as well as a thread in the Sager area.
