Connect Live! Drive IR to your Sound Blaster Live! audio card to get the best audio solution
available for your music, digital audio content creation, games, movies and other Internet
entertainment. The Live! Drive IR has a front panel, which allows you to connect commonly
used audio sources to external devices easily. It conveniently allows you to plug in your
microphone and headphones, and adjust the gain/volume from the front panel. Live! Drive IR
also provides MIDI, as well as, digital input and output connectors for your audio recording
and content authoring purposes. The infrared receiver on the Live! Drive IR lets you control
your PC and perform tasks (such as playing audio CDs and video CDs) remotely from the
comfort of your sofa or bed by using the Creative RemoteCenter remote control.

However, if the SPDIF Bypass
feature and Aux In 2 are both
enabled, both the SPDIF In and
Aux In 2 channels will be
available.
For details on the SPDIF Bypass
feature, see “Digital I/O” on page
14.

Troubleshooting
Problems Installing Software
Problems with Sound
The installation does not start automatically after the CD-ROM is inserted.
Cause
The AutoPlay feature in your Windows system may not be enabled.
Solution
To start the installation program through the My Computer shortcut menu:
1. Double-click the My Computer icon on your Windows desktop.
2. In the My Computer window, right-click the CD-ROM drive icon.
3. On the shortcut menu, click AutoPlay and follow the instructions on the screen.
No sound from the headphones.
Cause
The headphones may not be connected or configured properly.
Solution
Check the following:
❑ The headphones are connected to the Headphones jack.
❑ Under the Speaker view in the Main deck of Surround Mixer, make sure that
the Speaker mode selected is “Headphones”.
❑ In the Mixer deck of Surround Mixer, the recording source selected is “What U
Hear”.
❑ Jumper JP1 on the Live! Drive IR is set correctly for the type of microphone
you are using. See “Connecting Microphone” on page 5 for details.
No sound from the speakers.
Cause
The speakers may not be connected properly, the mixer settings may not be
configured properly, or the headphones are connected to the Live! Drive IR.
Solution
Check the following:
❑ The speakers are connected to your card's output.
❑ The correct source has been selected in the Mixer deck.
Live! Drive IR Quick Start SB0010 17
❑ If the above conditions have been met and you still do not get any sound, click
the red plus sign above the VOL control and check whether the Digital Output
Only check box is selected. If it is, you are in the Digital Output Only mode and
so must connect to digital speakers to hear the sound from your audio card. See
the section on Digital Output Only in Surround Mixer’s online help for more
information.
❑ If your headphones and/or the ¼" to 3.5mm adapter are connected to the Live!
Drive IR, disconnect them. Alternatively, open the Device Controls applet in
AudioHQ, click the Live! Drive tab, and then clear the Mute speakers when
using headphones check box.

object code. If you believe you require information related to the
interoperability of the Software with other programs, you shall not
decompile or disassemble the Software to obtain such information,
and you agree to request such information from Creative at the
address listed below. Upon receiving such a request, Creative shall
1. determine whether you require such information for a legitimate
purpose and, if so, Creative will provide such information to you
within a reasonable time and on reasonable conditions.
In any event, you will notify Creative of any information derived
from reverse engineering or such other activities, and the results
thereof will constitute the confidential information of Creative that
may be used only in connection with the Software.
TERMINATION
The license granted to you is effective until terminated. You may
terminate it at any time by returning the Software (including any
portions or copies thereof) to Creative. The license will also terminate
automatically without any notice from Creative if you fail to comply
with any term or condition of this Agreement. You agree upon such
termination to return the Software (including any portions or copies
thereof) to Creative. Upon termination, Creative may also enforce any

LIMITED WARRANTY
Creative warrants, as the sole warranty, that the disks on which the
Software is furnished will be free of defects, as set forth in the
Warranty Card or printed manual included with the Software. No
distributor, dealer or any other entity or person is authorized to expand
or alter this warranty or any other provisions of this Agreement. Any
representation, other than the warranties set forth in this Agreement,
will not bind Creative.
Creative does not warrant that the functions contained in the Software
will meet your requirements or that the operation of the Software will
be uninterrupted, error-free or free from malicious code. For purposes
of this paragraph, “malicious code” means any program code
designed to contaminate other computer programs or computer data,
consume computer resources, modify, destroy, record, or transmit
data, or in some other fashion usurp the normal operation of the
computer, computer system, or computer network, including viruses,
Trojan horses, droppers, worms, logic bombs, and the like. EXCEPT
AS STATED ABOVE IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE
SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED AS-IS WITHOUT WARRANTY
OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CREATIVE IS NOT
OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE ANY UPDATES, UPGRADES OR
TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THE SOFTWARE.
Further, Creative shall not be liable for the accuracy of any
information provided by Creative or third party technical support
personnel, or any damages caused, either directly or indirectly, by acts
taken or omissions made by you as a result of such technical support.
You assume full responsibility for the selection of the Software to
achieve your intended results, and for the installation, use and results
obtained from the Software. You also assume the entire risk as it
applies to the quality and performance of the Software. Should the
Software prove defective, you (and not Creative, or its distributors or
dealers) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or
correction.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have
other rights which vary from country/state to country/state. Some
countries/states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so
the above exclusion may not apply to you. Creative disclaims all
warranties of any kind if the Software was customized, repackaged or
altered in any way by any third party other than Creative.
LIMITATION OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES
THE ONLY REMEDY FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY WILL
BE THAT SET FORTH IN THE WARRANTY CARD OR

NO EVENT WILL CREATIVE OR ITS LICENSORS BE
LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR FOR ANY LOST
PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, LOST REVENUES OR LOST
DATA ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE
OR THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF CREATIVE OR ITS
LICENSORS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY
OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL CREATIVE’S
LIABILITY OR DAMAGES TO YOU OR ANY OTHER
PERSON EVER EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO
USE THE SOFTWARE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF
THE CLAIM.
Some countries/states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of
liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

If you must ship the software to Creative or an authorized Creative
distributor or dealer, you must prepay shipping and either insure the
software or assume all risk of loss or damage in transit.
