Note: this article is a translation of the article in spanish: Driver Sabrent 6-Channel 5.1 PCI Windows 7 64 bits.
The Sabrent 6-Channel 5.1 PCI sound card may give a lot of trouble when installing it on Windows 7 x64. I'll share the steps I took to make it work.
The official Sabrent 32 bit driver for Windows 7 may be found here. However, this driver is not compatible with Windows 64. There are two solutions. The one given by Sabrent's technical support is to install the Windows Vista 64 bit driver. Download it from adf.ly/K1t8E.
A lot of people reported errors using this driver. If this is your case, the second option is to use the Aureon 5.1 unofficial driver:
- Download and extract Aureon 5.1 PCI driver: adf.ly/K1tSY
- Uninstall any previous driver using Windows Device Manager (right click on Computer, then Properties and Device Manager). Then restart the computer. Make sure that the driver was removed.
- Go to the extracted folder and run Setup.exe to install the driver.
- The last step is configuring the sound card. Remember that there are two input channels and six outputs.
