One of my audio devices is installed, but not listed as a default dev

So, I have these wireless headphones that I got from Brookstone. The device driver is called E-Core wireless audio. Its installed and ready, but it's not listed as a default playback device in volume control. How to fix?


It worked ok before. There's no driver to install on my wireless headphones.

As "another device" does not show up too this suggests some problem other than just an "audio" problem. Post back with more info about the problems and also what the status of the affected devices are in the Device Manager.

Connect the Devices, one at a time, and then go to the Device Manager. RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. After both have been uninstalled, physically disconnect them from the PC then restart the PC. After Windows finishes initializing, connect one device at a time and Windows should detect and install the device. Many times this fixes problems such as yours and if you are lucky it will fix yours.

I left click to uninstall, and it just says "you are about to remove the device from your system." it doesn't give me no box..

one of them didn't come with any cd, so i don't think my wireless headphones matter, but i have the drivers on the other headset.
