Soundblaster live 5.1 digital drivers?

Hi,
I need some help before my soundblaster live 5.1 digital goes out in the rubbish! Bought this soundcard as an oem version and I can't get any drivers for it. I have managed to install a set which gets the front speakers working, but no joy with the centre, rears or sub. I've tried various driver packs from creative but I just keep getting the same message:

"set up cannot find any soundblaster products installed on your system. Please ensure your device is installed correctly.

Setup will now exit"

I know the card is installed correctly as the front speakers are working and I've disabled the onboard sound in the bios. I can't even find and use the mixer program to change the speaker settings.... I think this is missing from the driver. I've tried a google search under the model number which is.... SB0220 and that's got me to the stage I'm at now.

I'm running windows XP on the following system:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.35Ghz
K8S8X Mobo (SIS 755 chipset)
512mb 400Mhz Ram
160Gb 7200 rpm SATA
Sapphire Atlantis 9800 pro 128 mb flashed to xt @450/392
Piece of crap sound card I can't get any drivers for

Any help appreciated#Thanks

you must use the cd that came with the card... i have one of those as well, and they are pulled from DELL machines... and, unfortunately, the driver from the dell site will only install on DELL machines...i have a copy of the software.. let mek now and maybe i can send it tot you somehow.

leekirlew...... A year ago or so I installed a patch (I don't remember what it was called) from M$ that was supposed to help with Creative Labs sound cards (it didn't). All I could find it did was keep kicking my 5.1's back to desktop (2) speakers and loosing the Creative drivers. The patch had no uninstall so I ended up reformatting.
Have you installed any M$ patch that sounds like the above?

got it going by sending him a cd that i had for the dell cards. any SB 5.1 that says SB0220 on the pcb is not a Live 5.1, but a Dell 5.1. Any motherboard other than a Dell prevents driver installation, even if you try the Dell drivers. The CD i have is the only way that i know of to get these cards to work, other than KDX, which does not work very well with these cards.
