    Left speaker mid-high frequency distortion, including previous versions, but I'm not sure what caused this...if you have spare speakers try to replicate M18xR2 issue...besides drivers, Creative included all necessary IVY AW installation files...possible fixes? CPL "Device not supported" is intentional...request.

    It sounds good on this M18xR2 using internal speakers. No distortion and I am not finding any "Device not Supported" errors. Are you encountering that with external speakers and headphones?

    No errors, I meant installing without any modding.

    @Mr. Fox updated Recon3Di Win7 version Sound_Blaster_Recon3Di_Win7_M17xR4_M18xR2.7z

    v1.01.07 fixed the sound suddenly disappearing? Sound quality is better than any previous driver package, I'm currently testing the right speaker, probably not related so I'll re-upload two versions for each laptop.

    Thank you, bro. I already packed up the M18xR2 for storage last night, but I will get it out again later today and apply the second driver mod you attached today. Great work, as usual. And, yes... I have never had any more issues with disappearing sound since I started using the newer drivers mentioned earlier in this thread.

    Did you happen to see the M18xR2 BIOS mods/updates that @Swick1981 and @Raidriar have been doing? The mods work awesome. In theory, the same updates should be totally doable for your M17xR4.

    Nopes, no issues whatsoever, however I can say that THX may not be working but it's stable
