    Yes, the Audigy 1 drive can be purchased separately. As far as the Audigy 2 drive, it is not available for sale on Creative's website, but I expect that to change soon.

    I dont know that the Audigy2 drive is worlds apart from the original... is it different at all? I think all the actual processing is done on the board, not in the 5 1/4 part, so I don't think they had to change anything... would be interesting to see if they are interchangible.
