Creative Labs CT4870 / CT4780 Sound Card - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


The CD jumper cable goes to the CD IN on the audio card. It can go to either the CD or the DVD drive; it depends on which one you'll use for most of the AV discs. If you mostly listen to audio CDs in the CD drive, connect the jumper to that device. If you watch movies on DVDs and listen to CDs, connect the jumper to the DVD drive. Just make sure to put your audio CDs into that drive and not into the CD drive. The Aux port is for connecting to an internal TV tuner or other video capture card. The TAD port is for connecting the SB Live! card to a voice modem to make the computer a telephone answering device.

Creative still has the documentation for the SB Live! audio cards on their support site. It's in the section that lists all of their devices: https://support.creative.com/Products/product_list.aspx?catID=1&CatName=Sound+Blaster . Use the menus to select Live! in the first column. Then choose Sound Blaster Live! in the third column. Click Next. Click on the link for the Quick Start Guide near the top of the page. Select one of the listed manuals to download and solve the problem given in the Captcha box. The current link to Quick Start Guide for the SB Live audio cards is https://files.creative.com/manualdn/Manuals/TSD/2389/sblive.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Hello,
The driver should come with the sound card when you purchased it. It should come with a DVD that contains the sound card driver. You can also look for the driver in the website of the sound card manufacturer.
After installing the driver, Make sure to keep it updated so that you can avoid from any issues. You can use RadarSync to automate the updating process in your computer.

Hello this is the only trusted page i could find:

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Creative-Labs/SOUND.html

Try finding the driver by the model number.

When you find the driver you have to enter a code for downloading the driver.

Here is maybe not drivers for windows 7 and vista. Only for xp.

You can try the creative support site:

http://support.creative.com/Products/product_list.aspx?catID=1&CatName=Sound+Blaster

By selecting the model.
But i don`t think you can find the driver because they do not support older products anymore.

The alternative is to buy a new souncard if you run a new windows system.

Good luck

it uses less memory if you have the cd connected to the "cd in" on the sound card, but should work fine with or without it.
