I own Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium, it was working with no problems under Linux or Windows 7. It's original PCI ID is 1102:000b but now I see different within MS Windows.

  • BIOS setup: 1102:000b
  • GNU/Linux: 1102:000b
  • Windows 7: 1102:000d
  • Windows 8: 1102:000d

In last days I'm experimenting with IOMMU PCI passthrough in Xen and I tried to pass this device to virtual Windows 7 and 8. Here I found this problem. I don't know if this is just coincidence or reason of my problem but now it's wrong even in physical system.

Windows detects 1102:000d as a High Definition Audio sound device (I guess this name, I have localized Windows, but this is general name, the same was with Realtek HDA before drivers), it's playing but it's unstable (Windows speaker testing can crash that application) and I can't install Creative software. Used driver is hdaudio.sys.

Booting in BIOS or UEFI mode doesn't change anything. Nor CMOS clean. Someone met the same problem.

The solution is using original CD (even outdated) with drivers. These can be installed unlike those on the web. After installation device is shown as 1102:000b which is correct. But I can't still understand this 000d problem.
