Windows 7: Headset not detected

12 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Headset not detected

Hi everyone!

I upgraded my Windows Xp to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and everything seems to work as intended, except for my Seinheisser headset. Problem is, Windows 7 doesn't list them in playback devices at all (not even as disabled device). Speakers are set on default even though I'm not using them. It however recognizes my microphone.

I'm using separate sound card (Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS) in my system and I have upgraded it's drivers (even Windows update says that they are latest drivers available). What is wrong with this? Headset is supposed to be plug-and-play and I never had this kind of problem with Windows XP. I expected newer OS to be more user friendly, but no.

Any help would be appreciated.
