Re: JFW and soundBlaster live cards

Hello folks.

I, too, am a long-time fan and user of SoundBlaster Live cards. However, 
however, take care. When putting Jaws 6 on one of my computers the other 
day, Eloquence made a rather obscene noise after each word or phrase, 
reminding me of something best not discussed here. Try as I might, I was 
unable to correct the problem. When calling tech support at FS, the first 
thing they asked me was whether or not I was, per chance, running an older 
SoundBlaster Live card. I confirmed that I was. They told me that 
SoundBlaster was to have upgraded some of their drivers for that card but 
hadn't, causing much misery for a lot of folks. I bought another 
SoundBlaster, this time the audigy platinum, a lot more than I needed but 
fantastic in quality. I still use SoundBlaster Live cards in most of my 
machines and have no troubles at all. If you buy a new card, be sure you are 
able to return it, not often the case with opened software, in the event you 
experience what I and, according to FS, a lot of people do.

All the best.

Jerry
