Default Sound Card Help

So, I found this laying around my house. This was in an unopened box. I thought, why not. I downloaded the drivers for my card. It keeps saying install failed. I downloaded the Vista drivers. I have a DIAMOND XtremeSound XS51

Are you running 32 bit Vista or 64 bit Vista?

They don't have 64-bit drivers for that card. Therefore it may not work.

They have 32 bit drivers. I'm using a lot of 32 bit drivers right now.

Not all 32-bit drivers will work with a 64 bit OS. So if it didn't work when you tried it with the 32 bit drivers it probably isn't going to work.

Directly from Microsoft's website:

Can I run 32-bit programs on a 64-bit computer?


Many programs designed for a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows will work on a computer running 64-bit versions of Windows without any changes. However, in some cases there might be differences in performance. If a 32-bit program uses embedded drivers, the drivers might not work in the 64-bit environment. If you have a 64-bit computer, it's best to run programs designed to run on a 64-bit computer.
