Windows 7: Gearhead headset drivers for Win 7

Gearhead headset drivers for Win 7

Hi all, I recently built a new machine (full specs in my profile). It's running great, except for one issue that I'm having. I have a pair of Gearhead Headset AU6000 that I was using for gaming on my other XP machine. This headset came with an installation disk for XP and was plug and play for Vista. It won't install in Win 7, if I use the disk it acts like it's going to install, but just stops there. I've been to Gearhead's website looking for drivers, but in a word what a joke that was. I have also been unsuccessful finding any drivers in my web searches. Does anyone know if there are drivers for this device that will work in Win 7, or I'm beating a dead horse here?

You can try a Windows XP compatibility mode and see if that will work. Otherwise you may be "up the creek".

Wouldn't I have to install the device and have it recognized before I could use compatibility mode?

If you right click on the icon for the driver and select Properties, one option should be compatibility mode.
