Re: m3a audio driver for mediacenter MCE 2005

Hi Foice whats the audio chip on it you could try going to the manufacturers website instead of Asus as i have found all of their drivers are old and outdated . If it's a realtek hd audio chip there are drivers out for it at version 1.95 from their site
