  • Hi Juergen

    Unfortunately, this can happen when a hardware maker decides to end support for a product. If there was no compatible driver already installed by Windows Update, then you can try using the latest driver from Creative.

    Download the Windows XP SP3 driver and install this driver using the XP compatibility mode in Windows 7.

    Let us know the results.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for testing Windows 7

    I doubt that Microsoft will ever write drivers for an old proprietary sound card, or generic drivers that could support it.

    All that I can suggest is continuing to look for a work-around to get the drivers to install, or hacked drivers that would support Win7.

    (Or, stay with XP. Or buy an inexpensive new sound card that has Vista support, which would probably carry over to Win7.)

  •      www.kxproject.com  I found these drivers and they worked for me.  I installed Windows 7 and found out that I had the same issue.
