    Hi,
    before I intall the WinXP upgrade, the report indicated to me that I have a hardware that might need additional files in order to work with Windows XP. Under the "Sound, video and game controllers" category, the hardware listed is CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device. I don't know what this device is and don't know if it is neccessary to have this device to work on windows Xp. If I need this, how do I make it compatible?
    Thanks for your help.

    hi,
    thanks. I found the driver on this website. But I am not sure how to update this driver. Please tell me what to do. Should I install it now or I have to wait after I upgraded to windowxp?

    Install it now, but keep the file around incase you need to reinstall it for some reason.
