    Cool Audigy 2ZS Platinum Pro Need Installation CD Software & Drv... Pre 2009 XP.sp3

    I have lost sound after trying to fix my headphone no sound problem. After installing what I thought was the correct drivers/software from here

    http://support.creative.com/Products...=Sound+Blaster

    Now I have no sound at all all. I tried system restore, but no luck. I probably installed the wrong drivers and software. The outside box shows its getting power but no sound or headphone. I installed this sound card after a fresh install of windows in August 2008 with this SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0011.exe and CMS5_PCAPP_5_25_02.exe because I saw it in my program downloads. I also probably had the original install disk. I moved and haven't been able to find my original install disc. After reinstalling these two downloads yesterday I still can't get the Audigy to work. In the Past., The only thing I used from Creative was the Creative Graphic Equalizer Icon on desktop (No mediasource stuff). Now when I click on it I get this "The audio device supported by this application is not detected. The application will exit. Click on OK Box". I can go in the programs and get into Programs/Creative/Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS/Creative sound Mixer and get this error "Unable to change the sound device to your selected device.". In Device manager I see the Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM). When I go to programs/Creative (Its always highlighted).
    I somehow did get to some THX Setup console Box and its greyed out and I can bullet Digital output or Analog output but nothing happens. There is no Speaker in the Speaker selection box which is empty. When I go to Programs/accessories/entertainment/volume control... I only get WAVE/CD Player/MDI Synth in the Play control box (with SB Audigy 2 ZS Audigy [D880] in the id on the bottom of the play control box). I used to get many more before. In Adobe Audition I do see the Audigy D880 in the device menu/order. So something seems like its right!

    I basically need to get the install disk prior to August 2008 (Or one that I know will work). I don't need the mediasource stuff because it wasn't on my computer anyway and some sort of directions. I need this to work because for the time being I still use this computer for everything. In the next month or so I will start to build my first computer and with your help I hope I can do it... In the meantime, I need to get this old Dell Dimension 8200 (upgraded many times over the years) to give me sound again. I know with the proper drivers along with the correct software I can get sound again. I've been digging through move boxes, but so far have not found the original install disk.

    Please help someone! Thank you... and Mahalo.

    As far as drivers for XP...

    You should do a search for "daniel k" + the model of your sound card.

    Before you do the install, I'd recommend removing all instances of creative drivers.
