Creative Labs' SoundBlaster Still MIA
11:28 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Although PC peripheral maker Creative Labs announced on March 21st that their Mac version of the SoundBlaster Live! audio card was shipping, these cards have yet to arrive at retailers or at the warehouses of online resellers. IMG continues to receive various reports from readers on their contact with Creative Labs and various stores over the whereabouts of these cards, many of which contradict each other.


According to the latest report we received, the cards have not even gone into duplication yet, though they should do so sometime this week. An IMG reader reported that when he called Creative on March 30th, he was told that the cards should be manufactured sometime this week and might ship to retailers as soon as this coming weekend.


We'll continue to track the progress of these long-awaited cards as they reach the Mac platform. On a related note, Brian Souder has posted several times in our Hardware forum emphasizing that the Mac card drivers for the SB Live! will not work with any of the PC cards on the market, and no one should expect to be able to "flash" a PC SoundBlaster and get it to work. Watch for more details on this card soon; read through our preview for an in-depth look at what this sound card has to offer.
