And what if the drivers are not updated?
then you lose!
whether PCI, PCIe, Firewire or USB2/3..
or a new product line with new drivers is available
and the old products will be no longer supported ..
i has had this sh*t with one Audio-Card and 2 Midi (8x8) Interfaces..
and i can tell you: it sucks!!!!!!!!!!!
The RME 9632 driver is since 2003 up to date
look at their page: Driverupdate for Windows XP, XP64, Vista, Vista 64, Windows 7/8 32/64 & MAC
Date: 12/16/2013 !
or a company is thinking like Creamware (Sonic Core)
it will cost you 159€ to have the new Scope-Platform that is compatible with Win7 64bit!
Otherwise, you can use this card only for win xp...
the only thing I can personally recommend with good conscience is to buy a RME.
