Daniel K. drivers are not going to make that old sound card work in Windows 7 64 bit. The cards still have a 2GB memory limitation. If you have more than 2GB of memory in your system (which the poster does), you will have problems. The card will work with the KXProject driver, but onboard audio is capable of producing sound quality as good as the SB Live! card. Even the SB Live's gaming effects are outdated as is the interface, so you are lucky if it works at all to produce basic windows' sounds let alone work for gaming and movies.
The SB Live! drivers and applications were created for Windows 98 when hardware accelerated audio was still available. 15 years later should be long enough to tell the op to move on to something modern.
And like everyone else that mentions them, Daniel Kawakami's drivers are not going to make a crappy sound card sound great. They are not magic drivers, they simply make the card able to function under Vista and Windows 7 64 bit when they would not without crashing before.
Reminds me of people that say, "Oh yeah, well I know a guy back home that could fix that up real quick and do it cheaper, too! Well, except that guy ain't here."

If you can find them, the Daniel K driver will improve the sound and enable hidden features in those cards..
