Hi, I recently bought windows 7 for a Boot Camp to run ArcSoft ShowBiz. It runs perfectly but my sharkoon x tatic sp headphones for PC and Mac that Work on my mac aren't being read when I plug the usb part in. However, when I plug the audio jack part in it lets me hear out of them. I am also having the same problem with my x-box usb guitar hero guitar, it won't be read in the usb. Can anyone help me? Thank you

G'day and welcome to the forums.

If you are using Lion or Mountain Lion, did you follow the guide instructions and download drivers prior to installing Windows 7, and burn to a CD. If so pop the CD in and let it run. If you are running Snow Leopard pop in that system disc and let it run. Remember when in Windows 7 to regularly use the Apple System Updater.

If still no joy try the equipment manufacturers for drivers.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Hi, I am using Mountain Lion and I actually took it to a shop to install all the drivers needed because I was too lazy. I didn't receive a CD when I got my laptop back so...

Windows 7 is very fussy about USB hardware devices and will not install general drivers as was done in XP. It's likely your devices are not being recognized by Windows 7. Unless you find Windows 7 drivers for them, you'll have to live with it. I had the same problem with several USB devices in Windows 7 both of which were recognized immediately by OS X and Windows XP.
