I believe I got my Viper GC Extreme from console source back when they still had them.

But that's the non-extreme version (e.g, no USB) that they have for sale at $29.99.

Not sure if this will help anyone, but I was re-flashing my Viper GC Extreme to 2.1 from a bad theme (and it was my own :oops: ) a while back and I put a Windows 7 driver together using the most current FTDI drivers I could find and editing the .inf file. I know it works in Windows 7 64-bit, not sure about others. Should be recognized as 'Viper USB Adapter'.

This way you guys don't have to go install Windows XP mode or another VM in Windows 7. I could never get XP mode to recognize my Viper USB adapter properly anyway.
