    I've got an OEM Soundblaster live 24 bit card WITH driver CD that seems to
    work alright but a friend of mine is not so lucky.

    I'd hate to snail mail him the CD but I only have a phone modem so I need
    some help to find out which files I need to mail him for minimum driver
    functionality.

    Exploring the SB_INSTALL CD there are 4 files in the root directory, a
    'AUTORUN' text file with setup info, a 'Setup' text file with configuration
    settings, a 'disk.id' text file and a 'Setup' application file. There are
    also 12 folders, called 'AOD', 'Audio', 'Cms', 'CTEngine', 'CTRun',
    'CTShared', 'DirectX', 'FCC', 'Leaflets', 'License', 'Manual' and
    'Register'.

    So, where is the driver then? There is a 'Drivers' folder within 'Audio'
    but I don't know enough about these things to recognise what's needed.
    There is no '.inf' file there and I don't know what Win XP needs these days
    to recognise and use an audio driver.

    Any help much appreciated - judging by usenet postings / forum queries lots
    of people all over the planet who don't have the driver CD can't seem to get
    their Soundblaster OEM cards to work as Creative don't offer downloadable
    drivers.

    The drivers ARE there on Creatives website but it requires you to take
    the card out and note down the CT number (i.e CT1640) on the card as
    there are a few variants of each card with at least one vairant being a
    rebadged ESS soundchip rather than a Creative one.

    Is this the setup he needs?
