Windows 7: Other devices; PCI Input Device. No driver in Win 7

Windows 7 64-bit
 
 
[SOLVED] Other devices; PCI Input Device. No driver in Win 7

I've had this error since installing Windows 7 64-Bit (see pic). I know it has something to do (driver) with a game port on my Creative Audigy SB card. I never use this port but see this error in Device Manager & curious how to detect & install whatever it needs.

Any ideas?

Found the answer. No supported on Windows 7 64-bit.

Why not just "disable" it (right-click on it, and select "disable").

That way it won't cause a problem (i.e. it will not show up with the yellow exclamation mark) and will simply be ignored by Windows 7, never looking for drivers that don't exist.


Actually, I'm quite surprised there are now Windows 7 drivers for the Audigy/2. I had a bunch of these in my former WinXP machines, because I loved the sound they put out. When I first installed Windows 7 (back in December 2009) with an Audigy/2 installed in a PCI slot, I was informed there were no Windows 7 drivers.

I then tried the onboard Realtek ALC1200 chip, but didn't like the sound. I ended up buying an X-Fi Titanium PCI-e card, which has been very satisfying.

I didn't know that apparently the sound card portion is now supported in Windows 7. I have no need for the game port, so the loss of that wouldn't bother me.

I may take advantage of this next time I need a basic sound card for a basic 2-speaker machine using a PCI slot.

I've never used the game port, even in XP. Apparently, Creative has a driver for Win 7 32 bit but not 64 bit. When I 1st saw the yellow exclamation mark I didn't know what it was for so I felt the need to solve it. But, seeing it's a game port... never use it so no big deal.

Got it down to a question mark, now.
