OS X Mavericks / Sound Blaster driver

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I installed OS X Mavericks on my PC, everything works fine, except my sound card, which is Creative Sound Blaster Xtreme Gamer. I mean, i have no sound at all.

Would you, please, help me ? I searched with Google, but couldn't find a driver for OS X.

Thanks in advance.

There are two ways to get certain models of X-Fi cards working on OS X. I don't remember anymore what the requirements are but I do remember that only a few specific X-Fi models will work.


If the kxproject driver doesn't work for you there is a small chance that VoodooHDA will work.


If you can't get it working then enable your on board audio in the BIOS and use that for OS X (you can keep it disabled in Windows via the device manager).

Of course this means you'll have to either buy a small mixing console or I/O switchbox, or switch plugs every time you boot OS X.
