Finally found a driver that work in XP, I now have sound on headphones and on laptop speakers.

If I replace the WRT.ini in the modded drivers with the INI that worked for me, will that work ? I mean, will that enable the extra CPL options ?

The INF may also be needed, but will be fiddlier to work with depending how far apart they are versions wise.

IDT now uses a different format then Sigmatel.

But give the INI replacement a go first.

Here it goes, spent some time making these.

WinXP doesn't quite have the modability of Vista and Win7 but this should keep you guys happy.

IDT 6162.0 for WinXP x32/x64

idt_xp.jpg

INF v1.010 INI v1.031

This INI is specialised for the Dell Inspiron i9400

But with the same kind of PIN and \filter\ swap from original driver you should be able to customise it for your setup.

This may be a stupid question, but I am having a :) of a time with my onboard driver. I have a Dell XPS M1710 (Inspiron) with STAC9200. I have the Creative Audio Suite that came with the set up so I already have access to EQ, mixer, EAX (biggie for me), speaker selection. I don't like that I can't have access to an audio control panel that really does anything. Initially, I had this computer built to work with video and since then have decided that I am actually more interested in music production. I am especially trying to use the computer as a virtual pipe organ and have various programs for that. I recently purchased GigaStudio 3 Orchestra to use for a virtual theatre pipe organ. My problem is that GS3 needs an SPDIF compatible sound card or it is forced into ReWire mode. I would prefer to use stand-alone, or at least have that as an option and not have to load up a sequencer when I am just playing around.

I downloaded this file last night, but got the error 10... :) so I uninstalled and went back to my original set up. I really need an option for room size (reverb) that comes with EAX. I now have Dox forceware 185.68 installed. I tried different IDT drivers but when I install them I get an error message that says I have the incorrect hardware, etc.

My question is this: Can I find a better driver that my system WILL allow me to install AND will it be SPDIF compatible? I have partitioned my main HD so GS3 can have its own system free of driver conflicts, but without a real sound card the software has limitations. I bought a USB Audigy X-Fi sound card, but that made the sound horrible with all the snaps, crackles and pops. From reading several forums that is a known issue. As I have a laptop I am rather restricted in what I can do to get proper sound. I'd rather not have to buy a desktop with a real sound card if I can get away with some work around.

I have XP Pro, SP3 for GS3, and Media Center Edition (which after microsoft updates shows up as professional, SP3) on my main system.

Machine has nVidea GeForce Go 7900 GS Dox optimized which shows PCI/VEN_10DE&DEV_0298&SUBSYS_019B1028&REV_A1C9EC08. I know that the system is using sthda.sys but there are so many .ini files and I'm at a loss as to what to check in which .inf file. Just when I think I have it sort of figured out, ouch, I realize just how much I don't understand.

Any direction will be appreciated.

EDIT: Just wanted to add that I have XP 32 bit. Sigmatel HD CODEC, Driver Ver: 5.10.0.5515, dated 5/10/07

HDAUDIO/FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7690&DUBSYS_102801CE&REV_1022\4&32D619F9&0&0001

Also, I noted that when I look at the sigmatel high def codec, there are like 12 different drivers listed. Is this normal?

Thanks for all the work as this installed and works fine on my Dell E1505. One question though. Does it have an ASIO driver with it? There appears to be one in the tools window but it is cut off on the right and possible settings for it are not visible. Like this:

He

Mu

ASI

I'm assuming ASI is ASIO with the "O" cut off along with the options there.

Thanks again.

Hey Guys I finally got IDT audio to work on my HP DV7-2185dx

i used this driver st-idt_v6225

even though the audio seems to work i have no mixer

i just have the crappy windows default volume controls when you double click the speaker icon.

How do I get a specialized IDT audio mixer?

thanks

For me, only 5.10.6146 version from HP site have worked, and by worked I mean they have installed, started the device, but sound comes only from subwoofer. Speakers are dead, headphones are dead. I have no idea how to fiddle with the INIs, because I am pretty sure the problem lies with the pin assignments, since the same drivers work just fine in Vista.

Hi, I realize this is an old thread, but if the OP is still reading this, I have a couple questions...

1) is there a user-friendly guide on how to "mod" driver files?

2) If not, can someone "mod" the IDT driver file for an HP dm1z-2100 that I'm looking to downgrade from Windows 7 Professional x64 to Windows XP x64?

What specifications should I put in my request? Thanks in advance! :)
