    I found C-Media's download site. It has drivers for Windows 7 & 8, but when trying to download it asks to login. Maybe you have to register first. It doesn't specify if the driver is 32-bit only, it could also be for 64-bit. Just download it and see.

    Alternatively you can find the driver in a universal driver site such as DriversCollection.com or DriverGuide.com

    Any 64-bit version, for Windows Vista 64-bit or 7 64-bit or 8 64-bit should work.

    Here is the right driver: https://www.cmedia.com.tw/support/download_center from the official site. Beware, it is named this: PCI-8768-100902-5.12.8.17.41(XP-ER-01).zip

    You need to make sure it is the XP driver. Use compatibility mode (XP latest service pack).

    I only registered for this but it's important because the advice doesn't exist in the web. I had to look around a lot and ended up just trying out any old driver. It must be an XP driver because the other versions won't install completely. You don't just need a driver, but you also need the software that comes with the drivers (even if it doesn't really show up anymore u_u).

    I've reuploaded the drivers here in case Cmedia stops maintaining their site: MEGA

    Remember that if the driver doesn't install by running the setup, you can always force-install it manually from the Device Manager. XP drivers are 32-bit and can only be used in 32-bit Windows 10 (and earlier). For 64-bit you need Windows XP x64, Vista 64-bit or newer driver (if available).
