Wo, thanks for posting this.

I'll never advocate, buy, or push Creative ever again. I never really liked their stuff to begin with. They always had bloated driver and software installs on their hardware before they actually let you choose what you want to install, and after that point, getting their cards to function right was sometimes spotty. But if they are intentionally hamstringing their cards, and it seems to be the case to me as well, they fall into my corporate hate list.

I own both the Audigy sound card and Creative 5.1 system. That is pretty sad what they are doing. I won't toss my gear because of this, but it is sad.

That's how I've been doing it. I have an Audigy 2 sitting on my shelf because I have no use for it. Now I have no use for Creative.
