    I was unable to find specific drivers, but here is an installation guide.

    Also, software to go along with the speakers can be found here. It appears as though the company does not provide any drivers online. I could not find any on the company website, or DriverZone. Did the speakers come with a CD-ROM or anything? I would take a look at the installation guide and see what it says you should do as far as installing the speakers on the computer (or making them recognized).

    Hope that helps.

    My ada-305 speakers only distort audio when using CD/DVD drives

    I was searching for Windows XP drivers for these speakers, when I found your forum threads. I bought a new Gateway PC running Windows XP and wanted to use my old speakers. Now that I know that there aren't any compatible drivers, I disconnected the USB cable, as suggested. I can manually adjust the speakers fine. The problem I'm having is that the audio is distorted + pops and clickx ONLY when I play CD's in the CD or DVD drives. Sound is fine when playing music stored on the harddrive or streaming on the internet. Can anyone advise me?? I hate to have to give up these speakers.

    Check your CD/DVD-rom drive properties in Device Manager, that it does NOT have a tickmark in 'Enable digital CD'.

    still having problem with CD drive audio

    Thanks for your suggestion, but unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem. Audio still sounds distorted when playing CDs in either of the CD/DVD drives.

    Note that the drivers will not work Windows 2K or newer operating systems. I ran into these same issues with my ACS 495s years ago. I contacted customer support at Altec and they confirmed that there were no drivers written for these operating systems to control the speakers through the USB connection. The speakers should work fine using the manual controls on the right speaker in spite of no USB interface.

    I have the drivers

    I have some drivers I downloaded in late 2006 but they are bigger than the 100k upload limit. Send me a mail and I will send them to you.
