Dear all,
The official drivers off the Creative Labs:


Does not seem to work under Windows 2000 Professional SP4 (retail), as I still get Yellow Exclamation mark. I have tried the Sound Blaster Live! Value/PCI 512/5.1 Sept 2001 WDM which is CT4780.ZIP file, if Iextract it and use the find driver through the path option, it will install the drivers and can see the yellow exclamation marks disappear, but I wanted to know if there is a "proper" driver for this OS for my Sound Blaster Live! (SB0220).
Is this model considered OEM?

p.s. I am using the following system:
Abit BH6: Upgrade CPU or put a faster GPU?
Although I have replaced the ATi card with a GeForce2 card.

PIII-800E | Abit BH-6 | GeForce FX 5200 | 256MB SD-RAM PC100 | AWE64 Gold | Sound Canvas 55 MKII | SoftMPU | 16GBGB Transcend CF as C:\ and 64GB Transcend CF D:\ (Games) | OS: MS-DOS 7.1-Win98SE-WinME-Win2K Pro (multi-OS menu Using System Commander 2K)

Try this driver CD.

Yes, it was usually sold by Dell. I think it used to be called "Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital" or something.
