Question about Philips MCM530 CD Shelf System
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.
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!

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 Drive.zip)
must be in specific locations.
After downloading both files, right click on "Unzip to Home Drive.zip" 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.

XP will be out of date in a year, apparently, and so any replacement drivers and such will be unavailable in that time period.

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.
