    Are there Win 7 drivers for it? I'm using the Win 7 drivers for my Audigy 4 and it is working fine. With the default Windows drivers it sounded crackly, but the ones from Creative are fine.

    Sometimes hardware makers will stop developing drivers for the "next" windows version to get you to buy new hardware. It's happened to me with several devices over time. Hewlett Packard is a big culprit, along with some others. Best advice I can give is watch the Creative website for updated drivers, and maybe send them some nasty complaint emails.
