Creative Dxr3 decoder card and Win2K
Does anyone know if there are drivers out for this card yet for Windows 2000? I've checked on Creative's web site but I just want to make sure I didn't overlook something.
Yes but they are in beta form. I cant seem to find the link. Let me look for it.
Here it is
DVD w/dxr3 drviers
...just what I was lookin for...thanks!!!
A little word of advice. The beta DXR3 drivers are very unstable in Win2k. I installed them just a few weeks ago without any inital problems. It wasn't until I tried playing MPG files that I noticed my system would crash and hang because windows was trying to use my decoder card to play the MPGs. I tried uninstalling the software/drivers for the card and Encore 5x DVD drive, but some parts stayed on my system. (overlay controls app in my control panel crashed when I clicked it) My MPGs would never play and after about three days, I couldn't play any games that involved a movie playback (quake 3 intro, starcraft, etc etc etc, all games basicly) because the system would hang.
I know it's a bummber not having DVD for your Win2k system. I'd just wait until they are finalized unless you are willing to reinstall your OS and apps in case something goes wrong.
