My hard drive fused a couple of days ago , and I got a new one, this time with Win2000 Prof.
I am now encountering a problem with my speaker system, Altec Lansing ADA305. I know that the software is only compatible with my older OS, Win98 , but i have been assured the speakers would work fine.
NO they DON'T
I cannot install the drivers for the system and there is distortion. (Some squeeky, staticy type of thing)
Does anyone know where I can find this driver?
I checked Altec Lansing's website, but there isn't much help there, just some user installation guide yada yada yada, and some stuff for Win98... oh and my model isn't even listed there

DON'T BUT THIS PROCUCT IF YOU'RE RUNNING UNDER WIN 2000
ALtec said to me that they has NOT and will NEVER develop drivers for Win2000. They say it is not worth it to develop drivers for a "Corporate" OS. Fock'em.

Is this one of those speakers that plug into the USB connector?
This is good reason why I don't use such things. I have a pair of the original Cambridge Soundworks Soundworks speaker that plugs into the Line Out of my sound card and it works great even in Windows 2000 Professional.

I've got the BOSE Mediamate speakers and I added an altec subwoofer to it, it sounds so awesome. Just plugs in directly to the line out from the sound card. Is USB supposed to have better sound quality?
Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.
