So, I got this card from a Dell 4600.There doesn't seem to be much support from Creative for the drivers for Windows 7.Sound hardware hasn't changed by magnitudes like chipsets or video cards yet Creative cant make available or write some simple drivers for Windows 7.Search the net for SB0200 and Dell 4600 and you'll find my drivers for Windows 7 (x32)!
