Up until last year (2020) you could still download drivers for SB16, AWE64 and such from Creative's website. However, it seems that they are no longer available now.

For example, this is the AWE64 Gold page. Last year, it was still possible to download DOS and Win95/98 drivers from there. But now, only the "Getting Started" guide is available.

PC#1: Pentium MMX 166 / Soyo SY-5BT / S3 Trio64V+ / Voodoo1 / OPTi 82C930 / AWE64
PC#2: Celeron 466 / Abit ZM6 / Voodoo3 / AWE64 Gold / YMF744 / SC-155
PC#3: AthlonXP 1700+ / Abit KT7A / GeForce4 / SBLive / ALS100
PC#4: Athlon64 3700+ / DFI LanParty / 9600GT / X-Fi Titanium

Just downloaded the NT4 and 9x drivers from there as a test. I guess we could archive them at some point. (Note: they're going to do maintenance on their site next week, however.)

Computer in my collection that had too much work done is... Compaq Armada 1573DM!

- Original DSTN panel replaced with an HPA panel (now gone)
- Left hinge repaired twice
- Front panel replaced thrice
- Replaced busted inverter
- Chassis replacement

Ok this is weird. I can't see any drivers when I open that page from Safari on my iPad.

But if I go to the page using Firefox on my Android phone, the drivers do show up.
