    SB Z Sound Card Software Question

    I'm currently using a Sound Blaster Z Sound Card in my PC. Creative has recently released a new set of drivers for my card. What is the best way to install the new software? It's been awhile since I've done this. Is it best to uninstall the old drivers first and the install the new ones or can you just install over the old ones.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    In general I prefer to uninstall/re-install, but its probably unnecessary. I think the days of crazy sound drivers breaking everything have gone, so you can probably just overwrite and if you have issues go back a do it fresh

    You can always upgrade your current software from their website. If that doesn't work, it's no big deal, you always have the install/uninstall option.

    I have always uninstalled drivers and then installed the new drivers. Never had any problems that way.
