    Welcome to TechSpot Forums

    Which operating system do you have?

    ADA-305 had drivers only for Win95/98. There is no audio management software for Win2k / XP. However, according to some sites, they work without USB, just no 'surround' effects then.

    you don't need the driver software

    To countrol the surround sound features on these speakers just hold down the "center" button for a about 5 seconds, then the light will change from amber to a green color. Now, just press either center or surround and you can control their volumes.

    I've had these speakers for 6 years and they still sound great.
