    Hi all,

    I'm trying to get WIN 7 x64 working with this sound card DIAMOND Xtreme Sound 7.1/24 bit Sound Card. They dont have any drivers for win 7 only Vista x86. I had this card working with Vista x64 fine but havent been abl to with Win7 x64. Tried installing in compatability mode with both XP and Vista drivers. drivers install fine and it acts like the sound is working but nothing. I have the sound going through the optical SPDIF Out to a reciever. any ideas or help would be appreciated. thanks.

    The card uses a Cmedia 8768 chipset.

    There are beta Win7 drivers for that:

    C-Media Company Information

    They may be worth a try.

    At the least, it makes it appear likely that there will be Win7 drivers released by Diamond at some time.

    I downloaded and installed that C-media beta.

    Windows 7 still does not recognize my diamond extreme 7.1 as even being there.

    I am willing to wait about a week for a driver, if it is not out by then, I will find another sound card from a different manufacturer.

    These companies have known about Windows 7 long enough to have drivers available by now.

    Okay, I sit corrected.

    It works on the 7.1 after install and reboot. You then have to go into the Xear 3D to get all of the speakers working.
    This is a good download as long as you have the RAR archive tools to unzip the files.

    Nice card, do you have a 7.1 channel home theater system to hook it up to?
