Creative Web Cam NX Pro End Of Life Experiments

Q: Creative Web Cam NX Pro End Of Life Experiments

Hello I have been experimenting with the Creative Web Cam NX Pro a product listed as having reached quot end of life quot I felt that this obsolete camera merits continued discussion as a great many were made are available very cheaply on Ebay etc and because at least Some versions of the bit version of Windows as well as several older Linux distros will still work with the NX Pro despite the quot XP Only quot driver First the good news After acquiring three of these cameras Pro Cam Web Life Of Creative Experiments NX End for cheap on Ebay I installed two of them on professionally refurbished model year H-P DC computers that I acquired from NewEgg Creative Web Cam NX Pro End Of Life Experiments com The computers were used quot off-lease quot units supplied with the professional refurbisher s Creative Web Cam NX Pro End Of Life Experiments version of Windows bit operating system but they had been originally built for Windows XP I chose to try an install from the original disk than came with the camera but you Creative Web Cam NX Pro End Of Life Experiments can also Google for a file named quot wcnx pcdrv exe quot it is the last driver Creative released for it There is also an earlier driver circulating that works fine quot WCNP PCDrv US quot and an app pack with driver WCC PCApp US quot Try pasting these file names into Google to get right to the downloads The installation was not smooth it threw up many extra dialog boxes and repeatedly asked for permission to continue Some of the dialog was hidden by the old style Creative install screen and could only be brought up by waving the mouse cursor around near the bottom of the screen However I did find them and clicked yes OK as needed The software also tried to install a badly outdated version of Adobe Reader that I aborted The abort did not stop the rest of the install Also in my case I had the camera plugged in before installing They tell you not to do that but I got away with it When it was over I clicked the Creative web cam monitor applet and the NX Pro camera and it s microphone were working I installed the latest Skype software and Skype found the camera and mike Good to go Now the bad news I also tested an install on a year old Dell Dimension laptop that was loaded with the BIT version of Windows DON T DO IT Unless of course you know exactly what you are doing In my case it damaged Windows enough that I had to roll back windows to a previous restore point Had that not worked I would have had to pull my files off of the machine and reinstall Windows Doable but time consuming So if you have some basic computer ability are sure you have bit Windows and know how to rescue your files in a worst case situation I use a live linux disk and an empty USB drive then go for it and keep those adequate web cams out of the landfill Good Luck and enjoy your experimenting nbsp

Dipping PC parts into a vat of oil sounds scary at first, but it's actually a great way to cool components, and surprisingly safe to boot. You may recall that back in 2008, we played with an oil immersed system from Hardcore PC, and while the idea hasn't quite gone mainstream, it's making headway. Puget Systems sells a DIY oil kit (which we highlighted in 2010), and now Intel is experimenting with the idea, albeit on the server side.

Hello I am going to be purchasing a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro sound card and a Creative GigaWorks S Speaker System and I was wondering if the X-Fi Elite Pro comes with its own control and in out console box and if I connect the sound card to the console box how exactly do I connect the console box to the GigaWorks S subwoofer so I could have the full surround sound feel to my room And Creative Elite to a X-Fi Creative How GigaWorks Blaster Pro a Sound to connect Solved: S750? do I need the console box connected Solved: How to connect a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro to a Creative GigaWorks S750? to the sound card at all to get the surround sound quality Thanks These are good reviews of the X-Fi Elite Pro sound card -These reviews also show you and explain to you what the connections are and what cables come with the Sound Card http www nvnews net reviews creative sb xfi index shtml http lifestyle hexus net content item php item amp page This is a good reviews of the GigaWorks S Speaker System -This review shows you the connections at the back of the subwoofer http www xbitlabs com articles multimedia display creative-gigaworks-s html nbsp

A:Solved: How to connect a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro to a Creative GigaWorks S750?

I've had a couple of Creative sound cards with the console. They have been the internal models, but I don't think the setup of the external console would be any different. I apologize if I am not correct with what follows since I don't have personal experience with your setup. However, the general arrangement is that your satellites plug into the subwoofer and the subwoofer connects to plugs on the back of the sound card (which is 7.1). And that's it. Speaker controls are done with a utility within Windows. The external console has a headphone jack with a volume control for that. All the other plugs and controls are for things other than your speakers. In fact for most individuals the console is not a necessary item.

Edit: I went to the Creative Web site and I found this line "Easy control of Sound Blaster X-Fi through the convenient, external break-out-box". So I guess it does more than the usual consoles. Hard to tell from the picture. Speaker setup should be the same.

I recently bought this combination (Creative Inspire 5.1 Digital 5500+Creative Audigy LS). I hear the front speakers and the subwoofer but back speakers are not detected even by the diagnostic. I tried everything from installing the latest driver to uninstalling the old sound card. The stereo sound is fine but I can never get the 5.1 surround sound even with DVDs. Could someone please suggest a solution??

A:Can't hear back speakers (Creative Inspire 5.1 Digital 5500+Creative Audigy LS)

Some Suggestions

Check your Audigy HQ settings to see if the speaker modes are in 2 Speaker or 5.1 surround. Or you can go to Control Panel -> Sounds (multimedia settings) -> Speaker Settings and try setting it to 5.1 surround. I have Sound Blaster Audigy and I didn't know how to activate the 5.1 at first and what I had to do was go to the Audigy HQ in the Creative Folder in the Start -> Programs menu and had to set it to 5.1 in the speaker settings. If all else fails, double check your connections at the back and see if you reversed any of it and what not. Hope this helps!

Now, ON some DVD movies, the audio is not synched to the video, sometimes it's as off as a second. Is this memory problem (I have 96 megs ram) HArd drive space ( I have over a gig free) or a set up problem?? Has ANyone experienced this problem??? Thank you, please email.

A:Creative PC-DVD

A friend of mine has a stand alone DVD player (for his TV, not a computer model) that does the same thing sometimes.

He has to turn the player off, then start it again to get the synch back. If you stop the movie and restart does it synch back up?

I have a Creative Zen mp player - probably - years old I am having a problem getting files onto the player I drag them to the player and it quot goes through the motions of transferring the files But after it completes the files are not on the player I updated the firmware to and still have the same problem The files just aren t there I m old and stuck in my ways - I never had a problem on the old computer using XP and the software that came with the Zen I used the software and never ever had a problem getting files to the player Now I have a new computer with and apparently the software is not compatible with Windows When I try to install the software on the computer it says Windows OS running on this computer is not supported by this product Is there anything I can do to solve this or is there another program I should be using preferably something very simple Thanks so much for your help nbsp

A:Creative Zen

Try running the Creative Zen software in compatibility mode:

Right-click the Creative Zen application shortcut and choose "Troubleshoot compatibility".
Choose the option "Troubleshoot program"

Now tick the first option "The program worked in earlier versions of Windows etc......".
Choose the Windows version it used to work on, then click "Next".
The program should shortly open with compatibility setting applied.
That setting will remain for future use of the program in subsequent Windows sessions, so you only need do it once.

If still no joy, check this Creative Zen web page for a newer version of the supplied software which runs on Windows 7:

If your model is not shown there, click the link at bottom-centre where it says "If your model is not listed above, please click here"

One final thing. I would uninstall the incompatible version before installing any new version of the Creative Zen software.

Good luck and I hope you get it sorted!

Hi there!!

I'm now in my spending months where I buy all kinds of stuff till I run out of money again

I was tired of my bulky conventional cd player so I bought a creative zen:

It's got 30 gigs of space and it's sound is very good.

The thing is that, as you may know, It saves the mp3 files in a hdd disk, not in a memory device. I'm now going to the gym and I run about 30 minutes every day. Thats a lot of movement and I'm afraid that the HDD will get damaged or it will eventually fail.

Should I turn of the Zen player while I'm running?

Exactly what set up do you have? Usually, the HDMI port is on the video card. Some Video cards have their own on board audio (e.g. the HD4850 video card I have) and some pickup S/PDIF from a connector on the motherboard.

Me and 1 of my friends think that Creative speakers are the way to go but a few of my friends have bought the Logitech X-530's and went around saying they were good, but being a creative man i went out and bought the Creative I-Trigue 3400's. i finally heard the supposed great audio quality of the logitechs and personally thought it sounded like crap, my creatives were alot better and i was just wondering what people thought Creative or Logitech

A:Creative vs Logitech

6 things determines how good a speaker sounds:

-Power output
-Frequency range/response
-the Room its in/where its located
-whats played through them
-what you can hear.

But thats just me nitpicking

Seriously.. some of my friends use Logitech z530 speakers and they do sound alright but unfortunately i don't know anyone in my imediate circle that has any creatives so i don't really have much of an idea of comparison, but i'm sure they're well made..

If you want some real sound and have the cash, go for some JBL or Alto speakers...

HP Creative Scrapbook Assistant is software that was recommened in a quilting book. Where can I buy it? And...will it work with Windows Vista 32 bit?Leslie

A:creative scrapbook

@LeslieM1? I did find the Drivers page for the Software Updates. Unfortunately, even though you are running Vista, it appears that even Vista is too new for the Scrapbook Assistant.  Last driver Updates were issued for XP 32 bit. Having said that, Amazon carries the program (one left in stock); price is about $8 US. Will it run on Vista?  Perhaps in compatibility mode?  Maybe.  It does not cost a lot to find out. Various reviewers mention that the software is not for "newbies" -- I suspect this means the program does function well and provides a nice output (final product) ... if you can figure out how to complete your project. It might be worth looking at the User Guide so you can see whether the program is worth pursuing. HP Creative Scrapbook Assistant  Good Luck! When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Click my Answer Accept as Solution to help others find Answers.

I'm looking for some simple, yet creative backgrounds to be used as a DVD label that will have text on it. I'd like just some basic background colors, preferably darks, filled with brightly colored shapes, swirls, lines, spheres, shapes etc.

I don't want anything psychedelic or a pattern or anything like that. I know they are out there. I used to just use Google Images but I'm just not running across anything I like. Believe it or not, when you visit sites like and others like it, they do not have what I'm looking for.

I installed vista and the newest drivers for my Soundblaster X-Fi Xtremegamer. Now if I play music in WMP, iTunes, or Winamp I hear lots of, skipping, I guess you would call it. It like jumps. Yet when I listen to music and video on Youtube while running CPU intensive programs I have ZERO interference. Is there something I'm missing?

In the audio console for creative I turned it to the fastest settings I could think of, yet it does nothing.

Also a side note, I had a big sound problem, like all I heard was fuzz until I turned the bass adjustments in sound control panel down by half and it was good. Would that be related?

A:Vista and Creative

Is it the Vista version of WMP? I know iTunes had compatibility problems, i'm betting winamp does too - you're sure they're the Vista drivers? Do you have onboard Realtek sound you can use in the meantime?

I am planning to buy a new creative 5.1 speaker system.
Plz dont recommend me other speakers as they are not availiable in my city.

Which speaker is better :-
1) creative 5.1 m5300
2) creative 5.1 5200

A:Which Creative 5.1 Speaker Is better

I know you said those are the only available, which is very hard to believe, but the specs are very similar the only reason i voted for the m5300 is they are probably slightly newer, you sure there isn't like a staples or anything close to that where you can get a descent logitech setup or anything with more power, 50 watts of total power really isn't work getting 5.1.

I recently acquired Creative's new mp3 player, the zen v. At the very beginning of the installion manual a warning is given not to connect the device prior to installing its complementary software. I read this too late and connected the zen v before installing. Now with the programs installed my comp detects the zen but its own software doesn't. Any suggestions?

A:creative zen v problem

usually connecting the device before you are told to will simply result in windows being unable to find a driver. try reinstalling the creative software. all you really need is the media explorer. at any rate, you can still add music to your device thru windows explorer, it's as simple as copy and paste.

[Our Advice
If your card is working fine in Windows, but doesn't work in Windows 9x Dos Mode, try the following:

Restart your system in DOS Mode and type the following:

CD c:\progra~1\creative\sblive\dosdrv and press Enter
From here, you will be able to run a number of DOS utilities:
To initialize the card for use in DOS Mode, run SBEINIT.COM]

At this point I get the following error message...

(ERROR Config File is incomplete
Creative SB16 Emulation Driver NOT loading)

I assume I have to add a line to config.sys...but I do not know what...

A:Trying to get my Creative SBlive 5.1 to run in dos...Help!

In DOS mode open your config.sys file in edit if there is rem preceding any command lines remove them, before you exit from edit save changes (don't rename the file) chances are that the cards software installed all the proper files and windows deactivated them in config.sys with the remark switch.

1. THe sound through my headphone (sony mdr xd200) is very, very low even with full volume!

2. The soundblaster tab in speaker properties has different options; viz: bass boost, cmss, eq etc. I want to change the eq, but when I double click on the eq nothing happens! Same with other options (bass boost, cmss..)

I tried everything. If I dl drivers from the creative site, it always says 'unsupported product, setup will now exit'!

I have the pci-e creative x-fi titanium. I have the optical cable hooked up to my receiver and the receiver is showing all 5 channels and the sub as being active.

So... the receiver is definitely saying it is receiving a 5.1 signal, however..... When cycle through the speakers with test tones this is what happens:

Left Channel is played by the left speaker,
the center channel is played by the left and right speakers,
the right channel is played by the right speaker,
the rear right is played by the right speakers,
and the rear left is played by the left speaker.

I cant figure it out. At the surface everything should be working... if my receiver was showing it was only receiving stereo audio I could understand.

I have updated to the latest driver. No luck.

my mp3 was on a low battery and died so I put it on the charger and it charges for a couple of seconds then becomes unresponsive andf it wont turn on what should I do..?

A:creative mp3 problem

I have a Creative Zen Microphoto model player. I have found that removing the battery for a minute and then putting it back will let me power up the player normally when it would not power up otherwise.

You may also want to check the Creative web site to see if they have any software that will reset the player when connected to a computer. Resetting may or may not cause all of the saved files on the unit to be erased.

EDIT: Are you using a charger that came with your player or is recommended by Creative for that model player? Chargers with a USB jack made to recharge an Apple iPod did not put out enough current to charge my player when using the USB cable that came with the player. Learned that the hard way.

Different strokes, I guess. I installed Vista Beta 2 build 5384 about a week ago, and I've had fairly trouble-free experience. All but my creative SB Audigy2 ZS were recognized right away, and creative and nvidia both had Vista-ready drivers that work just fine. So far everything I've installed works normally (with minor exceptions due to XP/Vista differences).

Oh, and definitely disable UAC in the Control Panel > User Accounts section ASAP. It blew my mind how many times I had to approve just the deletion of a single file. With UAC off it's just like XP was, I say delete, it asks, then deletes, just like that. My only qualm now is that there's no way I can get the security monitor taskbar icon to go away (it's complaining about a lack of anti-virus software, and the disabled UAC bit).

See if this will help you out. I couldn't get the direct link to Creative to work.

You may disable the splash screen on startup as follows:

Click on Start - Programs - Creative.

Select the audio card installed in your system, for example, Sound Blaster Audigy 2, then select Creative Splash Screen,or Creative EAX, depending on the audio card and versions of drivers installed

Click on the settings icon (the little circle).

Uncheck the Load on Startup option.

If the Creative Splash Screen or Creative EAX is not listed under Start menu, you can disable it with the procedure stated below. Note these steps do not apply to the Sound Blaster Live 5.1 drivers installed under Win 95/98.

Open My Computer and browse to C:\Program Files\Creative\Splash Screen\demo32.exe.

A DemoShield Player window will open asking which Database to use, choose CTEax.dbd.

It should load at the lower right hand corner, click the smaller circle on the bottom.

This will give you an option that says "Load on Startup". Uncheck this to disable the splash screen on startup.Click to expand...

What kind of sound card do you have? I know that Creative has a utility that auto-detects line-in, line-out and mic. You might want to see if your card has one of those utilities and make sure it's detecting it correctly. Or maybe even reinstall your sound card, or update the driver.

i think you'll be happy with either card... the Xonar series is one of the best X-Fi alternatives other than the supreme FX cards. i have a X-Fi titanium and it's great for gaming, but i've also used Xonar cards in a few customer builds and they too sound fantastic. i guess it boils down to features and software. creative cards typically ship with a lot of bloatware, which doesn't need to be installed, but there is some decent control software in there as well. both cards will sound great with either games or music when connected to a good sound system.

The problem with that webcam is age.... It's too old for Windows 7 driver support. Though you may have some functionality, it's not going to work like it did in XP.

In short, there are no Windows 7 drivers for it. The best you could do is replace it with something more modern that has support for Windows 7.

If I an internal creative soundblaster soundcard, do I have to uninstall it and pull it from my pc and reenable the realtek sound before changing from windows 7 home premuium to windows 10 ?

A:creative soundblaster

Depends on the age of the SoundBlaster and if its compatible. Generally, if its Windows 8.1 compatible then it will be Windows 10 compatible.

But, if you want to use the on-board Realtek, either uninstall it from the PC or disable the SoundBlaster in the Device Manager. Enable the on-board in the BIOS (if its been disabled) and install the Realtek drivers BEFORE upgrading.

A side note, based on your My System Specs. You list Win 7 64 bit but only 4GB of RAM. The main plus with a 64 bit OS is that it will address and use more than 4GB of RAM. In addition, a 64 bit OS uses more memory than a 32 bit thus you have less of the 4GB of memory left for programs.

I've been using Audacity to record audio through my sound card (creative sound blaster fx) for a while with success. The default windows driver was all that was installed.

I have now installed the creative drivers for the card to boost sound quality on playback (which has worked) but now I can't record any audio. Audactiy says "error opening sound device" and there's no stereo mix in the recording devices any more.

How can I solve this? I assume I can un-install the Creative drivers, but I want them installed still for the sound quality/crystaliser.

Many thanks in advance! (This is beyond the level of my current knowledge sadly.)

A:Creative RM1500

I have the RM-1800 and its working fine with my card (Check specs for ref). I have a SB Live! External and it comes with an RM1500, if I can still find it, I'll test it out and tell you what the results are.

Perhaps try using the kx drivers: Official kX Project Site -- News
I didn't have much luck using Creative's Win 7 drivers for my Audigy 2 - lots of snap-crackle-pop - really disappointing. However, installing the kx drivers saved me from ditching my card all together.

Yesterday Microsoft provided us with a roadmap essentially for the coming year with Windows Is value there Update Win Creative in 10 development After watching for the full hours my overall impression was that Microsoft has set it's focus entirely on a very narrow marketplace gamers and perhaps artistic talent The two new devices aimed at that audience are very expensive I realize there is money to be made in this marketplace but for how long How many people will spend for an AIO desktop How many will spend for a notebook Trends at Microsoft have been away from Is there value in Win 10 Creative Update consumers dropping the Win Phone Band Surface and usefull software tools and not supportive of businesses who want a stable error free connected OS that will handle their operations applications reliably I've been in the tech field as a developer of small business management systems since all PC based Are Is there value in Win 10 Creative Update my perceptions wrong Did I miss something yesterday Is Is there value in Win 10 Creative Update this really the road to further greatness for Microsoft Please no snarky responses This is a legit question and I'd love to hear your perceptions

A:Is there value in Win 10 Creative Update

Eh, I guess I'm still going to stay on 8.1.
Anyways, I believe Microsoft isn't on the best course. It's not a bad one, but I don't like it and I think we're only going to see more glimpses of cool stuff like this countered with them kneecapping something else. I'm tempted to say I want Ballmer back in some way.
To be fair, the Studio is probably going to be a hit in the professional art arena for a while. My parents aren't getting it of course but I think it struck a good balance of being pre-built, a company supported device, and the display for designers and other people where that kind of stuff is their livelihood. I'm talking art people who are part of an organization with its own IT department.
As for the Book, I don't know. It does tick boxes but not my cup of tea.

Any ideas or skills ?

Hi, edkis, and welcome to the forums.

Creative has been lax when it comes to supporting 64bit and newer OSs - but have you tried the (equivalent) Vista driver? For instance, I have several pieces of hardware (Hauppauge PVR-1800 TV tuner, Logitech MX Revolution, my Acer X213W monitors, all of which I had to use the Vista drivers for. Also, I am using the Vista drivers for my RealTek HD Audio and nVidia GTX 260s as well....

Well I bought a creative zen mp3 a few months ago, haven't had any problems with it, I just added about 30 songs, after that, I couldn't play any tracks, I turned it off, and turned it back on and like 100 tracks got deleted.
can any one help plz?
Only reason this might be happening, It's cus I took out the memory card yesterday by accident, I didn't even knew it had one, but I was holding my mp3 and pressed on it and it popped out, I put it right back in, but after that It kept working fine.
Until this morning it just stopped.
Can any one plz help??? I listen to it like 20 hours a day, 24 If I had the chance to, and I'm really gonna be bored with out it, until I buy a new one, which might take weeks

A:Creative Zen MP3 problems, help plz

Hi, welcome to TSG.

Try the Creative MP3 Player Recovery Tool.

There's a good possibility that the music files currently on the player and expansion chip will be lost, so hopefully you have backup copies.
