So recently I started noticing a HUGE increase in memory usage by the audiodg.exe process on my computer. From what I've gathered, it exists primarily because of the enhanced features of the X-Fi series sound cards.

There is no resolution for this issue. As it stands, the only way to prevent the high memory usage is to disable the added features in the sound properties for Windows, thereby disabling the only damn reason to use the card.

So... here is my workaround until they get it fixed.


I title this... Screw you audiodg!!!

1. Create a text file on your desktop. (right click -> New -> text document)

2. Open the file.

3. Copy and paste the lines below into the file.

Array:
net stop CTAudSvcService

net stop AudioSrv

net start AudioSrv

net start CTAudSvcService

4. Save the file. (File -> Save)

5. Rename the file whatever name you want to and change it from a .txt extension to a .bat extension.



When you double click this file, it will stop the Creative audio service, then it will stop the Windows Audio service. After they stop, it will restart the Windows Audio service and then the Creative audio service. This will release the memory used by the process.


I know it's not a permanent fix, but it will work for me until one is available.
