Hi there!

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!

 In my limited experience Creative Labs has very good tech support.  I'd go to their web site, put in the details including serial no., and ask them.  When I bought a bluetooth speaker from them, I got good answers for all my questions I asked them.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
