  1. Thanks for your input guys.

    I still feel agrieved as I was quite happy with the drivers I had under XP
    and it is Vista that disabled them.

    I bought an Xmod but my 5.1 speakers dont have a 3.5mm line in socket so on
    top of £50 for the Xmod I am looking for £40 - £50 for replacement speakers.

    Whatever MS did with Vista has also disabled the control software for my on
    board sound chip so I cannot reliably default to that option.

    One final point, do a simple google search for Vista sound drivers and you
    will be amazed how few pop up as available. Most of the search results are
    problems and cries for help. If you also search for Vista compatible
    soundware, there is not alot out there that gaurantees compatibility.

    MS with all there research resources should have been able to build in
    forward compatibility for such a basic home user needs like soundcards but
    especially UNIVERSAL serial bus controllers

    Thanks for listening

    Graeme

    GraemeMarshall,

    Is it possible to find an adapter plug to convert your previous connection
    to 3.5mm? Take a look to determine whether such gizmo is available. Just a
    thought.
