Usb Headset Audio Issues


I'm having a really annoying problem that developed in the past 3-4 months. I use a griffin imic2 to plug in the monaural headset i use for vent. All my gaming (primarily wow at the moment) goes through my xonar dx sound card out to my z-5500 speakers. I'm running windows 7 64-bit on a dell xps420.

What happens is, the headset works fine until i reboot. When i reboot, ventrilo can't find the output, and in windows the imic2 device doesn't show up . If i unplug the device once and plug it back in, vent finds it, but it doesn't output any audio and the volume is at 100% in the windows mixer (i usually have the volume at 80%). If i unplug it a second time, the device works perfectly and windows sets it back to 80% like nothing happened.

I get the same problem with a cheap startech usb sound card i bought to see if the problem was the imic2. My next step is to reinstall but i hate to do that on what is an otherwise perfect setup. Ny ideas? Or can someone point me to where windows stores usb device debugging/logging info so i can see what its doing with this thing on boot that doesn't happen the second time i replug it?

Logitech Usb Headset 350 Audio Issue

For the first month or so of use with windows 7, this headset worked great. It also worked well with windows xp. But, a couple of days ago, i started having issues. Whenever i try to watch a clip on youtube, the sound is very quiet, and when there are supposed to be voices, they are extremely distorted.

Also, when using ventrilo, i now have to turn everyone else in the vent server's volume up by about 500% to be able to hear them.

Cannot Play Audio From Online Streaming Video Through Headset

On my new windows 7 home premium system, i can not play audio from online streaming video (hulu) through my headset jack.

After looking around to troubleshoot, have checked here: on my taskbar beside the time, i click the speaker icon and can see the incoming signal for my hulu is coming in. On the control panel/sound i have tested the left and right sound output and it tests ok. So, why is the sound not getting to the headphone speakers? How can i make this work? Have tried both ie and firefox current releases and neither works. Was trying to watch the superbowl ads on www.Hulu.com/adzone. Video works, but have no audio getting through.

Philips Shb6111 Bluetooth Headset Audio Driver

When using philips shb6111 bluetooth headset, the khz can be 44khz in win7 beta release rc, but not in the final product. A2dp working on windows 7 beta releases. Windows 7 release candidate and final release no longer includes a bluetooth audio-class driver. [12] a2dp support is provided entirely by third-party bluetooth software. Music sounds bad at 22khz, and ffdshow doesn't solve the issue anymore. Headset still operates at 22 khz. Any suggestion for a good codec?

Usb Headset Issue To Usb Hub

I am facing a problem with the usb headset lx-3000. When i connect it onto the mobo it plays without any problem, if i connect it at any usb hub it's dead. Both mic and speakers.connecting it back to the mobo it goes on without any problem.

It even continues playing without restarting the application like in vista. Same set up was on windows windows vista home pr 32b. While now i am using windows 7 ultimate 64b after format. Same headset, same keyboard (logitech g11). Think that it's driver problem but i've installed all the latest drivers.

Front Panel Routing To Back Panel Audio With Headset Plugin

Like so many other people i've had the mic/headset problem when using analog headsets with windows 7. I'm just about to move to a usb headset because of the lack of support on your main page. This is the last area where i can find an answer. So is there anyway to default any audio to rear panel only. I do not have a front panel and i have set my on-board audio to ac97 in case you ask. Essentially i'm tired of fiddling around with my audio when vista just worked and this doesn't. Let me know

I have just bought a logitech h330 usb headset.initially it was working fine. I then disabled it and now am unable to turn it back on.

I am running the win7 rc on a custom machine. If you would like any details of my setup let me know but as i said at first it worked perfectly i am just unable to re-enable the device.

Sennheiser Pc 35 Usb Headset Problem

Problem: i have recently acquired a windows 7 pc and tried to plug a sennheiser pc 35 usb headset into it.

Attempts to fix the problem:

* Plugging it into all usb ports, result - the device remains unrecognized.

* Using the fix for the problem stated in the manufacturer's website, result - the device remains unrecognized.

* Trying to set it as default in the sound manager menu, result - the device remains unrecognized.

With this information available, any thoughts on how to correct this problem?

Ares Stereo Usb Headset Problem

Driver problem with "ares stereo usb headset"_das ger¤t kann nicht gestartet werden. (Code 10) (the device can not start. (Code 10) i have a little bit trouble with my "ares² stero usb headset" and "windows 7". The support page from my headset (speedlink.com) only told me "for vista you need no special driver, vista installs his own driver, it is called c-media usb headphone set. ".

But it didn't work for me and my windows 7. Windows fount and install the driver, but he can't initiate my headset and told me the best ting what i can try is to reinstall the driver, but this didn't resolve the problem. So i think this is maybe a problem of windows 7. I can't believe, that i need a special driver for a normal usb headset with only a function to increase and decrease the volume output.

Informations i have found:
Headset: http://www.Speedlink.com/?P=3&cat=183&pid=15862&paus=2&act_lang=en
My windows: windows 7 home premium

Usb Headset - This Device Cannot Start - Code 10

I've just bought a usb headset today and tried to use it. I got a driver error message when first plugged in. The help system proved useless. After doing some searches on this forum i checked the device manager and found that the usb audio device properties indicates that 'this device cannot start. (Code 10)'. The forum entries suggests that many people are having similar problems.

Mine is a new windows 7 64 bit install on a new hard drive, but on an older pc hardware - asus a8n sli premium. Anyone got any suggestions as to resolving the problem. Note that a normal headset worked fine yesterday (but i broke it) plugged into the jack sockets but i wanted to use a usb headset so as to avoid having to keep going around the back of the pc to change to my 2. 1 speaker system.

Razer Megalodon Usb Headset Issue

My razer megalodon is acting really weird on the link i provided where it shows the blue and red on the volume/mic controller (looks like a square box) the blue and red is to tell you how high the volume is but today it started acting weird like going up and down on its own not the volume but the blue/red bars when i play anything with volume on my laptop it's reacting to the sound levels which it is not supposed to do.

It has never done this before and i didn't do anything to make it do that + i don't ever recall anywhere in the site saying that it could do this. It just started all of a sudden so if i play something it goes up/down but when i pause it all entire bar goes down which is really weird. Anyone have any ideas? It's not a problem but just really damn weird!

Logitech Usb Headset Mic Is Not Working

My logitech usb headset mic is not working on windows. It plays sound fine, and is set as default device and default communication device, but the mic does not send my voice to the computer. I have a studio xps laptop. The troubleshooter cannot find anything wrong with it.

Usb Headset Volume Buttons Stopped Working

I have the asus travelite hs-1000w headset. It's compatible with all versions of windows. I had this particular headset for about two weeks before the volume buttons on it stopped changing the volume.

It's plug-n-play "driver free", so there are no driver updates for it - i've checked. It's always set as the default sound device to be used when it's plugged in. I don't have any intelli- products (intellitype, intellipoint; someone suggested there might be a conflict).

It worked with no problems whatsoever until one day i rebooted my laptop and only the volume buttons stopped their function for an unknown reason. It's not the usb port; changing ports doesn't make any difference. It's not the headset; the buttons work when tested with other computers, both pc and mac. Nothing was installed during the session before reboot, not even any windows updates.

Yet the volume buttons still don't move the volume slider. I've tried everything i can think of, including uninstalling the driver/rebooting/plugging the headset back in and letting it do its business. My last resorts are to do a repair install of win7, and if that doesn't work, reinstall win7 entirely.

But, as one may guess, i don't want to have to basically reinstall everything (200+ gigs) on my computer just to get one thing working again that, at this rate and based on past events with it, can't be guaranteed to stay working again for much longer after that.

What really bugs me is i seem to be the only one on the planet who is having this sort of issue.
How do i get these buttons to function again if it's something on my computer that's affecting them?

Cyber Acoustics Ac-850 Usb Headset Problem

I have a cyber acoustics ac-850 usb stereo headset which worked fine on windows 7 until i installed a new external lg dvd burner - usb driven. Now the headset is not recognized when i plug it. It works fine on another pc and the device is shown as compatible in windows 7 compatibility center. With the headset plugged in, i select the playback devices from the sound icon and only see my speakers (default), the sound card headset 3. 5mm sockets for sound, hdmi and s/pdif.

The microphone doesn't show up either. I have uninstalled the new dvd and reverted windows 7 to the state it was a few days ago - but that didn't do the trick. Oh, and the headset doesn't come with a driver. My processor is intel core2 quad cpu q8200 @ 2. 33 ghz 2. 34 ghz on dell studio 540 with 6 gb ram windows 7 - 64 bits

Logitech 250 Usb Headset - Setup Playback / Recording

I recently updated to windows 7 from xp, and when i tried to plug my logitech 250 usb headset into a usb port, windows made the usual sound, so it seems as if it recognized it. However, it didn't set the playback or recording to default to the headset. So i tried going into the sound settings in the control panel to set it, but it didn't even show up in the list of valid recording and playback devices.
 
It should be compatible, and it does show up in my regular devices menu, however i can't get it to work. Please help me.

Travelite Wireless Usb Headset Buttons Don't Work

I'm having issues with the volume +/- buttons on an asus hs-1000w travelite wireless usb headset. The power and link buttons work, and the headset functions properly, but these two buttons don't. As far as i am aware, there's no reason why; i just turned them on one day and they didn't work - and with the headset being wireless, this is a big issue.

I also tried a friend's wired logitech usb headset on my computer, and the volume buttons on that did nothing either. So i'm thinking that either it's a driver issue (which, i might add, would be funny because the asus headset is "driver free", and there are no updates for the "driver" - believe me, i've researched), or an os issue.

(I have win7 home x64, by the way. ) The volume +/- buttons worked for a couple weeks after i received this headset, which was gifted as brand new and not refurbished. I don't get any errors, the device manager recognizes the wireless usb audio "driver". And something is still up. Any help or guidance at all would be greatly appreciated. I have had this problem, asked around, and done the research literally for months, but to no avail. There isn't even any support for this product on the asus website - it's like it doesn't even exist to them.

No Recording With Usb Audio Device

I choose to play the audio output of my pc via a hi-end usb dac rather than the scabby wee green hole. But as soon as i connect it (or any external usb sound-card) all internal audio input to the stereo mix disappears. Stereo mix remains the only and active device in the sound 'record' tab (other than microphone) with or without the dac connected but any signal showing activity on the bar meter when not connected disappears when connected.

As all recording software, including the basic windows recorder, still see only the stereo mix recording source option then no recording is possible whilst monitoring via the dac. I have to disconnect it and monitor any recording from said green hole. Then, once recorded, swop back again.

As i make music, entirely pc based, then i require as good and true a monitoring system as possible, thus the dac, but it's a bit of a nonsense that having got my mix just so via the dac, i then have to disconnect the thing just so's i can record it down onto two tracks of audacity or the like. And then connect it back to listen to the final result. Am i doing something wrong/missing the point somewhere please?

Cubase Se3 Compatibility With E-mu 0404 Usb Audio Interface

Will windows 7 work with cubase se3? Saving it to install later? Will it work with a e-mu 0404 usb audio interface? I currently use cubase se3 on windows vista, it was a right blag to get it set up on vista but it does now work, just wondering if it will work on windows 7? I am also planning to download it now to take advantage of the 30 quid student deal, but don't want to install it until a later date, probs when they release about the 3rd service pack and it actually works properly, would i be able to just save it to an external hard drive?

I also recently bought a e-mu 0404 usb audio interface which was yet again a right blag to set up with vista, just wondering if that will work as-well?

Headset Not Working Right

I'm using a dynex headset, which is a usb headset. It worked fine on windows vista 64 bit and i got my upgrade disk today. I upgraded to windows 7 but encountered a few problems. My volume coming through my computer works fine. When i have my headset plugged in thats where the problem is. I use ventrilo alot to communicate. Everytime a sound goes through my headsets speaker it gets static-y and remains like that for about a minute or until another sound comes through.

People can hear me just fine and clear. Its not a vent issue because the static occurs during any sound, even the windows notification sounds. I've updated all usb drivers and all the downloads from windows update. Any ideas?

Headset Setup With Win 7

I recently purchased windows 7 and installed it onto my pc (before i had xp). My pc is capable of running it (3. 4ghz, 6 gig 6, ati 5770). However, i cannot get my headset to work with windows 7. The headset has an orange and a pink jack. I have plugged these jacks into the back of my computer in the corresponding jacks several times but windows has never detected anything. I have tried the "add a device" feature and windows has come up with nothing. Additionally on the audio device manager it says that speakers, headsets and microphones are all not plugged in, even though they are. Anyone know how to configure these with windows 7?

Bluetooth Headset Error

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I can't seem to get my blue tooth headset to work with windows 7. It tells me i need to get the drivers, but when i try windows update it says i'm current and the manufacturers website tells me the generic blue tooth drivers from microsoft should work. The blue tooth module is working properly and the head set works with my other vista computers, so i'm at a loss for ideas.

I have also tried installing drivers from broadcom having read similar problems being fixed by such actions, but the head set still does not work. The head set connects and shows up under devices, but has the troubleshooting icon. I think thats about all i can remember at this time, any help or ideas on how to fix this problem would be much appreciated.

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.
