So today i bought a new Headset, its the Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3d Rage USB version. Its awesome but I've got a problem with windows 7 and the driver.
I got Windows 7 Ultimate and when i plug in the headset, i can hear the sound from my PC just fine, the mic works too. the only problem is that when i try to open up the Sound Blaster Control Panel, there comes an error message which says: The Audio device supported by this application cannot be detected. This application will not close.
That is strange, since the device is already plugged in and working. when i open up the sound mixer, i can see a pic of the headset, so the pc knows its plugged in, its just not specified. I've tried numerous things like:
Plugging in the USB in another socket, front and backside. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and restarted my pc like 4 times.
I have gone to the control panel, In to the device manager, and deleted the Host controller so everything that is plugged in by USB had to reinstall. and i tried the headset on my laptop, which has windows 8 on it, and it just worked fine. the driver panel opened up with no problem whatsoever.
something else to notice, is that when i go to devices and printers, i can see that the headset is listed under ''Unspecified''. so my PC doesn't recognize is at all. I know that the problem is 100% my pc.
If you know a solution, i would very much appreciate it!
