windows 7 is usually very good at finding drivers for most devices (at least it has been for me) there are always some that require a bit more attention to get them working though.

the easiest solution is to get the device drivers for windows 7 from the manufacters website and install it prior to connecting the device at least that way you could find out if the manufacter even supports it in windows 7.
