I do. I tried both nvidia's, and Creative Labs. And neither of those
companies even responds to email...not even "sorry, we don't answer
that". Just no answer at all. My recommendation is that aside from the
open source supported emu10k1 for sblive, all creative labs and all
nvidia products be boycotted. Without info, their products are worthless
as a development tool.
