Win7 ready Soundcard with Gameport

Hi All, i just installed Win7 Ultimate on my rig the other day and my Creative Soundblaster 5.1 live! wasn't recognised. No real suprise there, but i was wondering are there any Creative or other brand sound cards that are Win 7 ready and have a game port? I have a joystick which i use for Retro gaming which connects via my soundcards' gameport.

Any recommendations?


PS My mobo's (Asus P5KC) onboard sound card works fine so i have sound just no joystick :-(

When I first installed Win7 it recognized neither the sound card (SB PCI512) nor the gameport attached to it. I switched temporarily to mobo (Asus P5B) sound. Eventually a driver for the card arrived via Windows Update and I switched back to the SB. Unfortunately it appears that there is no support for the gameport. My joystick is shot anyway. Looking for a cheap USB joystick.

I bought a Logitech Attack 3 joystick ($20) to replace my old Gravis joystick.
