THIS IS ONLY MEANT FOR CREATIVE SOUNDBLASTER LIVE USER IN WINDOWS 2000!!


I had just download a file that enable AC3 passthrough in Windows 2000. I had just found out this afternoon when I exploring Creative's newsgroup. If you are using Windows 2000 and want to enjoy AC3 with your home-theater, this file is right for you. It is like a dream came true! There is 2 versions of it, PowerDVD 3.0 and Cinemaster 2000. Remember, you cannot have the AC3 passthrough if you are using DirectX 8.0! This is only meant for DirectX 7.0! Well I haven't try to install DirectX8.0 to see whether it works or not, just use DirectX 7.0! Be safe than sorry :-)

You can get this file at http://www.angelfire.com/movies/trix/bin/


Hope it can help you! Good Luck!

Also available here. I have tested it out using PowerDVD using Chicken Run. Both DD and DTS tracks went through fine.

Does not work with WinDVD 2.3 (and probably earlier versions as well).
