Unknown Devices doesn't like Vista (yes, another one!).
Personally, I don't like drivers from Windows Update - Both Windows Update and HP messed up my system with their video drivers for my HP 750n - it wasn't until I went to nVidia.com that I got a working driver. Since then I recommend getting the driver from the manufacturer of the chipset of the device rather than Windows Update (although I have had some success' with it in Vista).
If the device shows up in Device Manager, try looking at the Details tab of the Properties of that device to see if you can find anything. Google a lot of the unfamiliar terms and you'll start to get an idea of what the device is. Here's a database to help with the search for drivers: http://www.pcidatabase.com/
Finally, I recall hearing that the SoundBlaster has issues with Vista - and this could have caused the misidentification of the device(s). I'd suggest (if available) trying the SoundBlaster drivers for Vista to see if it picks up the questionable devices. Yanking the Creative card and rebooting will tell you if these other devices are associated with the card or not.
