Okay...I pulled out the SBLive and tossed it on the shelf. Creative insists that the Audigy is rock-solid under Win XP.
I\'m using a Gina20 for Giga, but I still need to do GM development, so I want to be able to have a wavetable card onboard. I installed the Audigy, disabled the game port and the Firewire port.
I still get lockups. The Audiogy is sharing IRQ 10 with the USB controller, but IRQ 5 is unused. Any way I can get one of these devices moved to IRQ 5 so there\'s no sharing? Of course, I\'m ASSUMING the IRQ -sharing is the culprit...I may be way off-base.
Creative declines to answer email. A little strange, considering they GAVE me the Audigy because they know I\'m developing for PC products, and they knew I was having problems with the SBLive.
