I bought an sb0160 off Ebay without drivers, and can't find any: Creative doesn't supply OEM drivers, and I haven't been able to identify the system vendor (although I think it's probably Compaq or HP) to get one from it. I notice Directron is selling the SB0160 OERM and hoed I could beg, borrow, steal or buy a set from the company or a customer. HELP!

You should be able to use the retail drivers from creativelabs.com with your oem sound card.

The basic Audigy drivers do not work. Creative does not carry OEM drivers: all they do is provide the card and basic driver set to the system vendor, who modifies the basic set to match the system the OEM card goes in.

i often use OEM creative / sound blaster cards to build systems -- i use downloaded driver / software from www.creative.com or www.soundblaster.com websites and works just execellent

Here is a link to the drivers thaI use they are free from the KX Project: http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/kX-Project-Audio-Driver--Beta-Download-309.html
They are superior to those at www.soundblaster.com because they allow me to have a HQ type inviroment. I installed these and they found my card and it works great.

zmopar1 thanks.
Your suggestion solved my OEM driver problem.
I have the SB0160 i my machine and every time I rebooted the sound stopped working. The kX Project drivers work just fine now.
Thanks again.

Just registered just to say THANK YOU!

The link to the KX audio drivers saved me a ton of wasted time of sifting through website after website for a solution for my customer.

Is there a story behind this project? Did someone like myself get tired of looking for old creative drivers for products that they simply decide to not support any longer?

Again, THANK YOU zmopar1, today you win the internet!
