There are no 64 bit drivers for usb connections. What you may be able to do is upgrade to Windows 7 Professional which can run Virtual Windows XP mode

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... ws-xp-mode

The USBDRVEN installer will work in Virtual Windows XP and
install the drivers properly, and also link the installation to
Windows 7 with a USB Virtualization Connector Driver.

What I don't know is if this will work properly with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, as I have a 32 bit computer ( IBM T60P
Thinkpad running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit )

Contact Microsoft and ask about your particular
computer first before you upgrade.
