On reading specs, use of the USB is NOT supported on a MAC or on other than the 32 bit version of Vista. If you happen to have the 64 bit Vista, it won't work. All the other versions of Windows seem to be supported..
SOMETIMES one must install the software BEFORE connecting the USB cable to the unit. SOMETIMES one must install the drivers in SAFE MODE. These things are ridiculous, but some of the quirks of Windows are stupid.

The keyboard should stand alone and NOT require any driver. Drivers are for PC's,
Now if you are trying to connect the keyboard to a PC, then that is a different story. You did not mention that.
For tying a keyboard into a PC there are both USB and MIDI connections. You haven't mentioned using either.
When talking to a keyboard you will need music editing software, not a driver. That software you purchase SHOULD have what you need as part of it. There are also editors for the parameters in the keyboard. MOST of that software has to be purchased, although you sometimes can find shareware. Some can be quite expensive.

Try downloading MidiOx and troubleshooting with it. It will show you if you have any midi activity and which channel your Casio is transmitting on etc.

You need a midi to usb interface, otherwise it is quite simple. I personally have an M-Audio interface that plugs into my midi out and plugs into your usb port on your computer. Once done, you can create a profile in Reason for your CTK. Windows 7 will notice the M-Audio device and then you will be able to use midi. You may have to install a specific driver for the particular M-AUdio device (or another midi to usb interface) but that is simple. You do not have to worry about a driver for the keyboard.
In my experience, M-Audio makes about the best midi/usb interface, and they come in all popular configurations. I use a very small 1-to-1 interface, though there are multi port interfaces one can buy. I purchased mine on eBay, though you can find them at Guitar Center if you have one in your City, or alternately Musiciansfriend.com web site. Many online stores sell them though. You amy want to use Amazon or a price comparison web site to find your best deal.
Thank you for using FixYa, and good luck.

The Casio support site has a page to download the latest driver and software; once you download it you can install the file (and save to external media):
I hope this helps.
