16 - 24 bit recording

I have just upgraded from a Creative audio audigy to a Creative audio X-Fi Xtreme audio soundcard. However the Setting - audio devices box in n- track only sees the MME drivers for the new card, not the asio or WDM. I can therefore not set the recording quality to 24 bit. i only loaded the basic driver for the sound card as I am not interested in all the other software that comes with it.
Any suggestions??

What operating system are you using? This will make a difference in your setup.


You may need to install the rest of the softwae and select ‘Audio Creation Mode’ from
Start/Programs/Creative/Sound Blaster X-Fi/Creative Mode Switcher.
