    When I was looking for the same I compared a few and Cool Edit came up trumps. Very easy to use and very versatile. Better option than Sound Forge IMHO.

    I never found liveware of any value with the Plat 5.1 since all the software was supplied with the card.

    When I did try it once it screwed every 5.1 driver I had in place. I resolved it by...

    Agree with OLI it's probably a ground loop if it's 60hz (in your case). The chances of it being an intrinsic card problem are almost nill since the power supply is well sheilded and filtered. If...

    I've used one of each for my two drives and to be honest the difference is almost imperceptable. For a single drive I would go for SPDIF.

    The AWE32 came with 1meg of on board but could be expanded to 32 meg with aditional SIMMs (the onbard was disabled when the SIMMs were added).

    This forum is fairly divided on which is best but I'll say my bit.
    I've got a SB Live Platinum 5.1 which is the bees knees. It has a "Live Drive" which is a front mounted I/O panel and has an infra...

    I've had a Plat 5.1 for a while and can speak very highly of it. I do some live recording for a group of classical musos and I use the card as part of the editing process (among other things).

    Platinum 5.1 CD Ripper

    I know I'm a bit slow sometimes but I discovered the bundled software which came with my Plat 5.1 has a CD ripper built in. For those who have the card it's in the media player. Just change to Juke...

    I'll upset K6III now by saying my SB Live Platinum 5.1 (with it's IR remote), never looked like giving me any grief when I was installing it.

    Yep the Plat 5.1 does decode Dolby dig and AC3, irrelevant of the DVD software.
    My speakers are Altec Lansing ACS56 which have a decoder built in (via S/PDIF) but they don't support AC3, so I prefer...

    "I want to hear my mp3s in full glory"

    I think that may be a contradiction of terms. I'll stick with 16bit WAV's in full glory. Hang the disk space.

    Without knowing more detail, it could be an impedence mismatch. The "line in" to your SC should be much lower than say a "mic in" but the output of your amp could be much lower still, resulting in...

    Ditto. You're going to have ongoing problems with drivers for both 2000 and ME for a while yet. I stuck with 98SE for those reasons.
