Why should I use Driver Robot to enable SPDIF?
Your sound card's SPDIF functionality requires the latest official sound card drivers
The surest way to enable advanced features on your sound card like SPDIF is by running the latest official drivers that are compatible with your sound card - and Driver Robot is the best tool for automatically downloading and installing the latest drivers. (Driver Robot's database has more than 2,000,000 official drivers!)
Automatically avoid compatibility issues between your hardware and SPDIF
Different versions of the SPDIF functionality work with different versions of your hardware. You also need to find the correct SPDIF driver for your Windows version (like XP or Vista). Doing this manually is a huge pain, especially when there's a tool like Driver Robot that can do it all for you in 2 minutes.
Unlock other hidden features and functionality on your sound card
You already know you need a driver update for your SPDIF functionality to work correctly - what about the other features on your sound card? Often, new drivers from the manufacturer will unlock more technology on the device - it's like a free hardware upgrade! Driver Robot is always getting the latest drivers direct from the manufacturer, so you'll be the first to know when this happens.
Watch how Driver Robot automatically updates your sound card driver (with SPDIF)
After downloading Driver Robot, it will begin a brief scan of your system, finding all devices that are currently attached to your computer.
As soon as the 2-minute scan is complete, Driver Robot contacts its driver database and finds any updates that are available for your hardware.
Driver scan results
Once Driver Robot is finished getting results from the driver database, it will show you official updates for your device. You have the option of selecting which drivers you want to install on your system.
It's here that you'll be presented with the option of updating your sound card with new drivers that include SPDIF functionality. (You'll probably also find a few other drivers that need to be updated.)
Automatic driver download/installation
Once you choose to update your sound card with the new drivers that contain the SPDIF functionality, Driver Robot will automatically download and install the new drivers. The driver downloads are served from huge server farms all around the world, so they're usually really fast.
These drivers are always official drivers, direct from the manufacturer - no need to worry about compatibility issues or crashes! They're also always the most up-to-date version of the driver, since Driver Robot updates its database every day.

Using Driver Robot to enable your sound card's SPDIF functionality
To begin updating your sound card's drivers to enable its SPDIF functionality, you first need to download and install the Driver Robot software. Following this, you may wish to uninstall Driver Robot.
Installing Driver Robot on your computer
To begin the installation process, you must download the Driver Robot setup file first. Get it here: Driver Robot setup file. If you are asked whether you want to save the file or open it, choose "Save".
When the file is finished downloading on to your computer (about 30 seconds for most people), run it by double-clicking on it. You will see the Driver Robot splash screen, welcoming you to the installer and telling you that it is going to install itself on to your computer.
Press "Next" (at the bottom of the installer window) to continue to the End User License Agreement. Agree to the license before press "Next" again.
Driver Robot will now un-pack on to your system, and set itself up specifically for your computer. The process is very quick. In 15 seconds or less, Driver Robot should be running on your computer. Press "Start Scan" to begin searching for sound card drivers.
How to uninstall Driver Robot
Uninstalling Driver Robot is even easier than installing it. Open your Start menu (using the "Start" button in Windows XP, and the "Orb" in Vista and Windows 7) and click "All Programs". In this list, find the folder titled "Driver Robot" and click on it to open it.
Inside the "Driver Robot" folder should be a link labeled "Uninstall" (or maybe "Uninstall Driver Robot"). Clicking this link will run Driver Robot's uninstaller.
If you are asked if you're sure that you want to get rid of Driver Robot, press "Yes" to proceed. The uninstaller will now reverse all changes made to your system during the original installation process, as well as remove any trace of Driver Robot.
