Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks II Computer Speakers

Soundsticks not recognised

Help. my soundsticks are no longer recognised by my PC and when i try to play a song in itunes it says there is a problem with the audio hardware and the counter will not even move in the play window.
i installed some new security software last week and they seem to have stopped working since this.
I have checked that the speakers still work by using them separately with my ipod. i considered that the port at the back of my computer but my defective, but when i plug in the speakers i still get a loud buzz/feedback on contact.
if it is a driver problem, i don't have any disk that might have come with the speakers.

any help would be great. cheers.

Remember that speakers that plug into an analogue port do not need drivers - the drivers are for your sound card.
I sounds as though the problem lies there.

Need help getting my computer to know my USAB connection


If your computer is not recognizing the soundsticks via USB there might be 2 possible root causes: either the PC does not have or cannot obtain the needed drivers for the installation of the soundsticks on the operating system, or possibly there is a problem with the USB port itself. This might be checked in the device manager of your operating system.

Garbled sound


Your Codec is damaged. Reload your drivers for your sound card. First uninstall the old ones. Moving your non working speakers and they play fine says they are good. I have a problem that you have new speakers and the problem went away. Drivers do not care what speakers are on the other end. It only produces output. Now that your second pair is working correctly, put back the Harmons and see if the problem comes back

Hi, Kazim
Firts things First:
1) check connector for 2 way sound. you can use a headphone for this.
2) you also buy Ipod dock sound speakers, there is Ihome speakers, great ones, for less than 25.00 dollars.
3) you have to see balance on those speakers.
good luck

Soundsticks switch from Apple to PC...


No drivers needed for them to work in XP, this I know for sure. Any other operating system, I can't say with any certainty. But I would assume they would work ok in Vista as well.

When plugged into a Windows XP system, they show up in the device manager as "Harman Kardon SoundSticks" without any additional software or drivers. Hope this helps.
