I am trying to install drivers for my old Soundblaster Audigy2 ZS card on my WindowsXP installation. I’ve tried a downloaded version as well as the original CD that came with the card but I keep getting the error: “Setup could not detect any Sound Blaster Audigy 2 on your system.” Although the card is there (I’ve tried moving it to other slots) and has been for years.
In Device Manager, under Other devices (with yellow question mark) shows Multimedia Audio Controller (with Yellow question mark). Clicking on the latter, Device status indicates, “The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)”. So it looks like Windows sees the device but not the installer, or?
I was doing some hard drive swapping earlier, but when I put in the original HD, with which the sound card had been working fine, the issue arose.
Why won’t the installer recognize the card?
