    I was doing driver updates today and have run into a major issue!. I
    updated my SB Audigy 2 drivers to the latest version rebooted... no
    problem. I then flashed my bios to the latest version which is ic15..
    rebooted and I no longer had a hard drive! In the end I reformatted my
    hard drive and got it back up and running with Windows XP Pro... no
    problem. Installed the sound card drivers and the same issue came up
    again... no hard drive. I went to a second system and created a boot
    disk with the ic14 version of the BIOS and flashed it back. The
    system came back up with no problems. So just a warning do NOT go to
    version 15 of the bios.

    are you talking about the IC7 board and version 1.5 of the bios? this is
    the first report I have heard of with respect to this issue... I have an
    Audigy (not the 2) and have had no issues and I have a hard time figuring
    how sound drivers would interfere with the hard drive detection in the bios
    but anything is possible...

    I have an Audigy 2 on an IC7-G with BIOS 15 and no problems at all.
    Latest drivers on everything and even O/C to 3.26GHZ, Stable as anything.
    Maybe you have other issues with your setup as I have had absolutely no
    problems with this board in anyway.
    Even my temps are good too.
    Did you pull the power lead and clear the CMOS? Have you checked the BIOS
    I agree with Tom I can't see how a soundcard can cause a problem like yours
    so there must be something your not doing.
    Good luck :)

    Firewire and usb and other associated busses maybe?

    Bad drivers?

    Audigy Classic :) here, IC-7G and 1.5 - no problems
