    It's always been an issue with Sound Blaster hardware, as far back as Windows 95... Sound Blaster Drivers have always been very sensitive to OS upgrades and need to be re-installed. I don't know why, but it's just always been the case with Sound Blasters.

    It seems (at least on mine) that for whatever reason they've limited the sound bitrate to 16 and you can't go higher. II hope this is fixed.

    I have the IDT High Definition Audio and had to set the bitrate to 16 for the sound to work.
