Hi, I seen some previous discussion on this problem but no answers. Maybe someone has additional info since then.
I just purchased a plantronics DSP-500 headset with USB connection. I hooked it up to a A7A266 AMD motherboard with a 933 mhz AMD processor and the Ali chipset (southbridge chipset is 1535D+).
The headset works fine in windows (both sound and recording) but in certain games (ex. Medal of Honor) the sound plays for a short while and then cuts out and nothing more. Even exiting the game does not get the sound back, I have to reboot to get it back.
I have all my BIOS settings at the default, have loaded the latest drivers from Asus, Plantronics and Ali but sofar the same problem.
If I am reading the Q&A postings, the fix seems to be to go out and get a separate PCI USB board? Is this the recommended approach (if no-one found another fix).
Should I go with an external Hub? or internal?
Since I am still running win98SE should I go to USB 2.0? or will that just cause more problems?
Thanx for any help in advance.
