Hi Experts,

My motherboard audio died, so I installed a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI card (installed driver v1.04.0090).

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

Since changing to the new sound card MP3 files etc. play OK.

But some of my sounds are clipped.

For example, the Eudora "new mail" sound.

Here is the sound file:  http://www.freewebs.com/rexall1/newmailwav/newmail.wav

If I play that file after downloading it, it sounds fine.

But when Eudora outputs the sound it is clipped - listen to this recording (preceded by about 30 seconds of silence): https://www.yousendit.com/download/cnJqRFFkNmNCMTd2Wmc9PQ

Regards,
Leigh

hello.
its comes to either drivers or most likely audio codecs.
i'd suggest that you try updating your audio card drivers and grabbing a codec pack like k-lite found here

Hi stergium:

The driver that I installed to make the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI card work initially is the latest version (1.04.0090), i.e. the first one listed here: http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=1&CatName=sound+blaster&subCatID=208&subCatName=X-Fi&prodID=15855&prodName=X-Fi+Xtreme+Audio

I installed K-Lite Codec Pack 7.2.0 BASIC.

Sounds are still clipped.

My workaround is to use a USB Sound Blaster.

After 3 days without a solution I plugged in a USB Sound Blaster - now all sounds are fine.
