I converted from an old Dell desktop running W98 to a new Dell running XP.  I have Altec Lansing Multimedia (ACS495) speakers and TBS Montego Sound Blaster.  When trying to use these with XP on the new machine, I get the msg "noncompliant USB device."  Is there anyway around this?  Can I get emulation software and drivers off the net anywhere?  I tried to save some $ and didn't get new audio hardware with the new machine.  Can anyone suggest how I might squeeze more usage out of my original ACS495 etc. mentioned above?
Thanks,
Dick_Y

Thanks so much! The article's comments worked when I applied them.  I shut off my machine, unplugged the USB cable, rebooted . . . and was greeted with Microsoft's sounds when the system came up.  Thanks again.  I was just about to go on EBAY and see what speakers etc. I could pick up.
Regards,
