    Well, I've got a 5.1 surround system that I use with my iMac, with the assistance of FireWave.

    But, I do most of my gaming on Windows, and it's a shame to have them sit idly by due to a lack of compatible drivers as I game away with the iMac's sub-par (for gaming) speakers.

    Is there any way to remedy this?
    A hack to get the drivers to work on Windows, or maybe someone made the drivers for Windows, or something?
    Anything?

    Thanks

    It doesn't work as a generic FireWire audio device?

    Not from everything I've tried, I couldn't find a way to get it to work.

    I'm in the same boat as you. If I find something I will let you know.

    Hey dont count on finding the drivers they dont exist. Nor will they. Get some pimpin headphones and use them. Ive been reading on other forums that the drivers dont exist and they are a year old or more a lot more ppl are in our same boat.... I do believe that I read that firewave might work under vista.

    I've seen this question come up elsewhere, repeatedly, and the answers have always been the same -- there are no Windows drivers for the Firewave.

    As far a Vista drivers -- here's what Microsoft says.
