Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

According to the Win7 compatibility site:

Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs and Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, and Downloads

both 32 and 64 bit versions of Win7 contain drivers for the C67.

Do any other USB devices work when plugged into the same port on the HP laptop?
