i’m using an OEM Audigy card w/1394a. i recently upgraded from Win2KPro to WinXPPro SP2. after installing a number of apps i use i realized i had not yet installed the Audigy driver. after installing the driver, i began to get all kinds of read errors from my CD-RW & DVD-RW drives. i tried the KX Project drivers and got the same result.
basically it appears that as long as i do not install drivers for the card, i have full use and functionality of my drives. as soon as i install the driver, i no longer am able to install any apps.
there is something going on w/the OS & these drivers is the best i can figure. i had the same exact system up and running using Win2kPro w/none of these issues whatsoever.
does anyone know of any viable solutions or updates that will rectify this lame issue?
