Sound problems, confused and help with NTFS
1. i have a problem with my sound now. i have both the soundblaster live 5.1 and the onboard ac97 vt8233 on the Gigabyte GA-7VAXP. well i go to the sound detection utility and when i have the ac97 set as the primary device and click play test sound nothing happens. but when i click the play test sound under the sound blaster, while the primary sound is still the ac97, it plays a the sound. and when it does this this vice versa selection. yet a couple days after i installed linux, it found new hardware defined as unkown, up to four devices, i think having to do with sound. need sound again, plz help.
2. is there any way to get my 2 other hard drives formatted in ntfs, along with the other drive partitioned in ntfs and ext3 as well, to read in linux?
