    Technically it's a Gameshark flashed with the AR Max Software. I haven't used it in several years and when I did I had to use Windows XP to properly use it.

    Does anyone know where there are Windows 7 compliant drivers for it?

    Just install the XP drivers for it manually in Device Manager.

    If you have Windows 7 Professional or better, you can try XP Mode.

    I've tried this, however there's still a difference between 32 and 64 bit drivers.
    I've even tracked down Datel's DS drivers (which have 64-bit versions) and tried to use them. No dice. Odd because it's the same driver.

    I'm going to try this next. I forgot XP Mode existed.

    XP Mode makes my systems run too hot. VirtualBox or VMware with a MiniXP install is a far better choice.
