Short of the modded driver from #4 here,

Creative Sound Cards.

there is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that card, it is just far too old to be receiving support (last driver update of any kind is over 7 years ago).

yes im afraid so as stormy13 stated, that card is about 9 yrs old and has now become known as a legacy card so drivers will no longer be developed for it

There are always the KX drivers.

Official kX Project Site -- News

I've heard they work but have no personal experience.

Latest versions list Win-7 support.
Read and follow instructions carefully.

I used these a few years back on XP, it's a very good driver.

Ok, I just tried my Audigy Platinum card with the KX drivers and the sound is very good... full volume, just like in XP. These are better than any of the Creative drivers, by far.

Creative Live Drive II and Win 7
Hi, I understand Creative Live Drive II has no Win 7 drivers. I'm soon to do an upgrade install of Win7 over XP. What might happen to the sound... it is likely to use the existing driver or is that impossible? Thanks.

Greetings, there are threads about bad sound with the Live! Value card. My problem is that Windows 7 does not recognize the card at all. not even as unknown device. The beta did. But the current RC does not show the card at all. How can get Windows 7 RC to detect my Creative Live!...
