MCM530 Philips sound agent vista driver?

I have the MCM530 system and recently bought a new PC running vista and I can't get the system to work due to lack of vista drivers.

    I also have the same problem and I attempted to search out information on the site in consumer assistance and found nothing.

    I have the MCM530 too, and I can only find drivers for XP.
    No support for Vista, Linux, or Mac OS.
    I knew this when purchasing, since it was clearly stated, but maybe Philips should bother making drivers for other operating systems besides XP.

    I have MCM530. It shows the same problem.

    I have the same problem in Windows Vista and Windows 2008.
    Initially my Philips MCM530 does not work, but if I choose the "USB composite device" and then "update driver", the device appears as "Philips Composite USB-HIFI Device" and I hear sound.

    However, every time I turn off and on the stereo, or reboot the computer, I no longer hear sound and I have to repeat the steps in the device manager. Any ideas?

  • Babis1 May 12, 2009

    Thanks a lot, Palitorc! This worked beautifully!!!

  • paul52jazz May 25, 2009

After try without success to install the cd driver and program from Philips, go to device manager and replace the device driver "Philips composite USB" (or something like that) pressing right click and the first option (update driver). Then the second option (find in this computer), then "choose from a list" and use the "Philips composite USB-Hifi device". Windows advertise that is not signed but continue anyway.
It should work, does for me.

Sorry for my english, i don´t really speak this language!

Greetings from Argentina!

    Babis1: from the Philips Driver CD, find the folder "SOUND" and run boomboxsa2v117.exe, then restart and Sound Agent will recognize the stereo each time you turn it on.

Okay I made a batch auto-installer for the device drivers.
It uses devcon which is kind of like a command line version
of device manager. So far I have had no problems and I finished
it in one night. I reccomend putting it in the startup folder on the start
menu so it will auto-run when you restart or turn the speakers on.

If you guys want to try it out I've uploaded it in two files: the
actual program and the resources it uses. The program (Philips Fix.cmd)
runs regardless of its location, but the resources (Unzip to Home
must be in specific locations.

After downloading both files, right click on "Unzip to Home" and select
"Extract Files..." or whatever option is similar. When it asks you where to unzip to
(i.e. your destination), select your home drive. For most computers this is "C:\" or
just "C:". It will probably ask you if you want to overwrite and/or merge files and
folders, MAKE SURE TO SAY YES TO ALL. When the extraction is complete you are set to go.

Double-click on "Philips Fix.cmd" and a black command prompt window should come up. It
will go through four phases: Disabling the Device, Updating the Device, Enabling the Device,
and Rescanning for Devices.

Give me feedback please and let me know of any problems at

Here are the links: to Home Fix.cmd

    Is this for 64bits version ? Because I had no problem with Vista 32 but now I'm on Windows 7 64 and it doesn't work. So I tried your fix but it is still not working.

    If anyone have a fix for 64version, it would be nice :)

  • Bryan Dugan Sep 08, 2013

    Sorry about posting here again, I'm sure most of you have thrown away you speaker sets in the past 3 years, but I wanted to come back and say I've made an updated, far more stable version of the auto-fixer.

  • Bryan Dugan Sep 08, 2013

    It is available for download here: Just run the file "Philips Fix.cmd" by double-clicking on it. It will automatically install the drivers for you. This is still only for 32-bit, as unfortunately Philips still has not made 64-bit drivers, and that's not something I'm able to do, sorry :(

  • Bryan Dugan Mar 10, 2014

    And I'm back once again... I had to move the location of the file I was hosting, so here is the updated link:

If you follow the Argentinian, and the other dude who said "Go to USB Drivers in Device Manager and look for USB Composite Device (it was the first one for me)"

Follow Argentinians instructions, and you will be able to install.

BTW, Im on a 32bit system. Dont know if that matters.

Do what our Argentinian friend said below, worked for me! Though was listed as USB Composite device under USB Controllers in Device manager.

I am having the same problem. thanks for the solution

Posted on Mar 16, 2008

XP will be out of date in a year, apparently, and so any replacement drivers and such will be unavailable in that time period.

Posted on Jan 21, 2008

I'm looking for a solution to this also. After trying a couple of times today, it bombs out when attempting to install the USB driver set repeatedly asking you to replug the cable and make sure administrator rights are being used.

Maybe it is time to dump Vista and go back to XP Pro.

Can I play music from my mac to my philips mcm530 without an install disc? If not, where can I get an install disc?

I have the same issue. To my knowledge there is no Mac support for the MCM530. We use the Aux and plug it in to the headphone jacks of our Mac (or PC). The sound quality is excellent and it will play anything your computer will play.

How do i hook up my i pod up to a mcm530 philips stereo system?

If it has an aux imput all you need to do is get a dock (which will keep the battery charged while playing) or the cheaper way - by connecting a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono plugs- lead. The 3.5mm plug goes into the headphone output of the I-Pod and the RCA's go into the Aux imput of the Philips.
It can be any imput on the amp (except phono) such as CD or tape.
You will find that you need to turn up the volume on the I-Pod to hear the sound.

No audio thru the speakers, headphones only

you answered your question. let me explain: the head phone plug is a switch- that disconnects the speaker and only allows sound to the headset. the switch is either broken, loose-wire or dislodged.need to get inside the unit, You could of course get creative. put an adaptor to the headphone jack;the adaptor can now allow you to run wires to the speakers. adaptor is avail from radioshack-same size as on the headset.

That is a very good possibility. Most printers that are no longer being manufactured are not supported by vista due to the makers are no longer writting the drivers.
