The drive was fine by the way, it's the card. And still haven't gotten a SPDIF cable, can't find one in euroland and kinda stupid to pay 20€ shipping + taxes for a $2 cable 😐

I use jumper cables for that purpose. Never had a problem with them.

It looks like the gold plated SB0240 Audigy 2 cards can be had very cheaply. I will grab one of those and test the vxd drivers on a fresh install of Windows 98 and post my results with the CD Digital option.

Hey all, I just wanted to provide a quick update. I just did a fresh install of 98SE with the SB0240 Audigy 2 and used Joseph_Joestar's guide to installing DOS (vxd) drivers.

I was pleased to see that after the process was completed, the "CD Digital" volume slider is exposed and functional! Moreover, the SB0240 Audigy 2 works just fine with the (SB0250) Audigy 2 ZS front IO panel.

So, it seems that the issue with CD Digital not appearing with the vxd drivers is a limitation of the Audigy 2 ZS (SB0350).

Very nice! Thanks for confirming this.

It's also good to know that the ZS front panel is compatible with the normal Audigy2 as well.
