Creative X-Fi PCI Card
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:29:39 PM »
Hey. I was just given an old X-Fi Titanium PCI sound card. I already had VoodooHDA installed for built-in audio in my hackintosh. I put in the new card and rebooted, but my options in the VoodooHDA prefpane didn't change. Then I disabled the built-in audio in the BIOS, and now the prefpane doesn't show anything. In fact, it crashes system preferences after a few seconds of error messages about a missing registry. I've read elsewhere that people have gotten the PCIe versions of this card to work. Is there some reason that my PCI card doesn't want to work? Can I do anything to get it to work?

VoodooHDA is for sound chips conforming to the Intel High Definition Audio standard.

You might try the kXAudioDriver here.

Ah, thanks for response but alas my card is on the list of things not supported by your other solution. I get what you're saying about the HDA standard, but if the PCIe versions of the card work with VoodooHDA, why wouldn't the PCI versions works? I guess I'm asking if Voodoo supports PCI cards at all or if there's some way I can finagle it.

Hello,

I'm the owner of the Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio.
And It's Not working with KxAudio driver or VoodooHDA.

Is it working finally for you ?

Hi. Unfortunately, no I have not been able to get it working. Extensive googling suggests that the PCI card simply isn't compatible because it uses a different chip than the PCI-E card. Hopefully support for it will be available in the future...
