Question about Microsoft LifeChat ZX-6000 Wireless Headset
Out of two different units neither has worked more than about 10 seconds. I plug the wireless reciever in and nothing happens. It appears that XP does not even know its there. No driver tone or messaging and the connect light does not work.
Once everything is installed to the point where the XBox360 receiver is showing in the Device Manager (not under the sound, video, and game controllers section) I did the following.
I was then able to follow the following instructions, starting from Step 2, to setup my OS to use the headset: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935748
Microsoft really needs to work on documenting everything, like how to force the headset to sync. I wasted 15mins trying to get this working.
I hope this helps out others experiencing this issue and if you are thinking about purchaing this headset, it would do it from some place where you can return it. You may not find the sound quality to be any good.

No connection here. It worked the first time only. Now I turn on the headset and it flashes all 4 LEDs and nothing. It worked the first time I installed it and tried it. The HELP file installed on my PC does not even search the word LED. There is no text to tell you what the LEDs even mean in the help file.
This is the ZX-6000 installed on the worthless, **** OS called Windows Vista that Microsoft forced on vendors. Vista is the Windows 98 of the new decade.
Bill Gates needs another pie in the face.
