There is a new beta driver for this soundcard for windows 7:
It works also on xp and vista.
Did someone already tried it ?

Did the installation updated the microcode in the soundcard ? (like the current stable driver did) I'd like to try this driver but only if it doesn't update the soundcard microcode.
tym: Not sure about the microcode. Is there are way to check?
xnor: my system should handle usb streaming just fine. Core 2 Duo, 2.4 GHz and 4 gigs of ram. Not a stellar system, but at least should be able to stream audio without glitches. I know you have posted in other threads about the 0404, but do you have any suggestions for exactly how my system should be configured. Im running foobar with ASIO4all.
When I updated to the last stable driver, there was a screen that shows the current microcode version, the version of the new microcode and proposed to update it in the soundcard. So probably, if it updated the microcode, it was shown somewhere in the installation process. If you saw nothing like this, probably the microcode did not change.
Tried the beta driver, it doesn't update the soundcard microcode.
With the current stable driver, the sound quality had slightly decline compared to the previous driver (this has been noticed by other users), I feel the best quality is back with this beta driver. Hope it will continue with the next stable release.
