    Hi -

    I have the Sound Blaster Live for Mac in an old G3.
    I'm thinking about putting it in my G5 but I know they never made OS X drivers for it, just for OS 9.

    I came across this Its independent development project making sound card drivers for Mac and Windows.

    Has anyone tried this and would it work for the Mac Sound Blaster live card ?

    As far as I know, no.

    kX Project's Mac drivers only work on Intel Macs, not PowerPC Macs.

    Creative Labs never made much headway on the Mac, people either used the Mac's built-in sound (which was quite good,) or a much higher end (usually external FireWire) audio interface.

    I see.

    Would you happen to know if those external usb sound cards (5.1/7.1) are any good (and work with Mac's) ?
