Speakers 2.0 durabrand not registering

I have Duranbrand 2.0 CH USB Powered Speak System UC-280. I hooked them up properly and to my sound card and USB port (I have 2.0). My computer will not recognize the device at all, it says there is no audio device anywhere. Any help? I bought two sets and they both work on one comp, but not on the other? Is there any way to download drivers for it to a cd and then taking it to the computher in question?

Re: speakers 2.0 durabrand not registering

If both sets work on one computer, but none of them work on the problem machine, then it's not the speakers that are at fault, but rather the computer you're plugging them into.

As you are getting a "No Audio Devices" message, and the speakers get their signal from your systems soundcard, the soundcard drivers may not be installed, or working properly (the USB plug, it seems, only serves to power the speakers, nothing else).

Open up Device Manager, and look for your soundcard, and/or any devices marked with a Question (?) or Exclamation (!) Mark. Install/reinstall the drivers for any of these that you see. If you don't see anything marked as such, locate your soundcard under the "Sound and Audio devices" header, and reinstall it.

(NOTE: You can get to device manager in Windows XP, by going to Start-> Run -> type in "Control", and press ENTER. From the window that pops up, make sure you're using Classic View, then go to System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.)

If you DON'T, however, see either unknown devices or your soundcard listed in Sounds and Audio Devices, reseat your soundcard in it's PCI slot or a different slot in your machine, boot up your computer, and see if it's recognized. if it isn't, or if you're using an onboard sound solution, you may have to replace your soundcard, as it's defective.

Hope this helps :~)

How do I open a UC-280 2.0CH USB Powered speaker system to reconnect the broken cable.

Once you open the speaker it will destroy the acoustic properties and make the speaker useless. The speakers are assembled with takp and glue and have to be pried apart.

try going to control panel, the system icon, hardware tab, divice manager, check to see if your sound card does not have a yellow ! icon next to it, if it does try right click, go to properties, and reinstalling it, it does help if the computer is hooked to the internet so it can find it automaticly over the internet.

Check the volume on the systems itself. The difference of hardware won't matter has long as you have the correct driver for each hardware. Just check the volume & still doesn't work GET BAC @ME.

Speaker won't work

First things First:
1) check your connectors back on the PC, I presume you use windows XP and sound drivers installed **
2) plug the speakers cable on back or front of your PC in the green (usually) connector.
3) see if sound is NOT mute on mixer , multimedia in control panel.**
4) If you can Enter your BIOS, try to enable sound, for onboard sound, if apply**
good Luck

Try turning the volume on the computer volume control up and turn the volume control on the speakers down, or try the other way, turn the volume control on your speakers up, and the volume control on the computer down. I've had this problem before and this was the way I found a resolution.
