    Hi guys, I'm new here. Mods – please move this post into a different thread if you feel it's out of place.

    Anyway, I've been always into trying out different positional audio tehnologies, like a3d, Sensaura, Xear, CMSS Headphones, whatever the new SB Z sound cards have ... A few days ago, I bought a USB sound card that was supposed to be a replacement for the one that comes with Logitech G430 headphones. I only bought it – you've guessed it :) – because it should support the Dolby Headphone technology.

    When it arrived, I installed the Logitech Gaming software and plugged the card into a USB port, but the software kept saying "No devices detected". Tried a different port – nothing.

    So, after taking a closer look, I determined that the device isn't recognised because it has a different Hardware ID compared to the devices listed in the Logitech USBAudio driver that comes with the software.

    I'm using Windows 7 64 bit.

    If any of you guys could help me mod it, I'd appreciate it very much.

    The content of the INF file is below; hope it's not too long.
    Thanks.



    Here's my devices Hardware IDs:

    USB\VID_046D&PID_0A0B&REV_0100&MI_00
    USB\VID_046D&PID_0A0B&MI_00


    And here's the contents of the INF file:

    Use this to get USB descriptor data from that device you bought.

    Actually... Get the descriptors from the original Logitech device also and see what parts of that are used in that config file.


    Device not found error then... Might help adding your device to this list. I'm not saying that this will work, but I have played around with USB descriptors when I was writing embedded software so it's a start. :) If that software was made by me, I would just check that VID (Vendor ID) and PID (Product ID) match with what is listed and then think that it's known device which should work. But you never know whats inside the code... Uhm, you sure that your device should work with that Logitech software ? Is there some custom stuff made or it ? Sounds strange that something sold as replacement would need manual ini file gonfiguration without any info.

    Replacement for the Logitech one, was it made by Logitech ? As that device is using Vendor ID which belongs to Logitech, it's a bit strange if it's made by someone else (still possible). BTW. Because that VID is correct, perhaps that PID (product ID) is correct also and it's also taken from some Logitech product, could it be that you are using a bit old version of that Logitech Gaming software ? Just thinking that perhaps the product was made later than the software so thats why it's unknown.


    IF you want to modify that ini file and hope that device works with that Logitech software you have, this might be a good start:

    BTW. Backup the original file :)

    Thanks for the quick reply, Tat3!
    I tried the modified INF you provided – sadly, it doesn't do the trick.

    I bought the dongle since the seller assured me that it works OK with his GS430. He said that it's a replacement unit from Logitech that will work and support the G430 and has a built in soundcard.

    I'm actually using the latest version of Logitech's software – maybe it'll work with an older one.

    Also, the Sound settings under Windows 7 say that it only supports 16 bit modes up to 48 khz, so I assumed it could be a driver issue ...

    Here's the tdd dump:

    As it should work with that headset and it's from Logitech, I cant see how it would need manual ini file modification. What that mod did (what I assume it might have done) might have actually passed some check, but then failed to find drivers to incorrectly supported device and then throw some error.

    Anyways, perhaps try to uninstall that Logitech software you had, have that original device unplugged all the time, same for the new one. Install new version of that Logitech software and plug in the USB device you bought. See what happens. Also check what other sound devices your computer finds and compare those to what you have plugged in.

    So the USB descriptors are telling it's 16bit before drivers have anything to say. That part is not a driver issue, it's a 16-bit DAC. It's not the end of the world though.

    BTW. My next reply might take some time as I'm away for rest of the day and back at some point tomorrow. Will check back and see if you have this one fixed or still need help (and if I have any idea what might help).

    Thanks. I did what you said, but it doesn't help.
    Connecting the USB dongle to an old XP PC yields the same result. Jult like under Windows 7, I can hear sound in my headphones and the microphone works, however, Logitech Gaming Software won't recongise the card as being plugged in. I only bought this thing because it supports Dolby Headphoe, but in order to activate that, the software is needed. I'll try a few more things.

    Can you post name of that replacement card and I'll check around the Internets if I can find something.

    It says that "There is no software available for this product." and A5572A is listed on that list. Perhaps it's a replacement for G430 as, as you said, mic and sound works, but not the Logitech software.

    As for modding drivers. It's hard because we dont know what is actually missing, might be quite a lot of other stuff than just some config file mods... :(

    OK, thanks for your hard work. I've already contacted the seller to see what he makes of it. I only wanted the part for its supposed Dolby Headphone functionality.
