Thank you for posting here.
From the post, I understand you have an audio drive is not supported by
Vista. And you want to find replacement driver for this audio card.
I have confirmed the audio drive Creative SoundBlaster in our HCL, it is
really do no in the list:
Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List
As this device is not on the HCL list, the compatibility of this device on
our system is not tested and therefore its work on the Vista is not
guaranteed. It is better for you to consult/contact the hardware
manufactory to seek the further support for it and see whether they have
replacement driver for it.
I hope the information above is helpful.
If there is anything else I can do for you, feel free to let me know.
Thanks and have a nice day!
