I start from scratch.
Install newest Balance Driver
Plug Balance into computer. Balance lights do not turn on. Balance not detected in windows playback devices.
Restart computer. The lights on Balance turn on. I hear a light pop come from the speakers connected to Balance.
Sound is playing through my computers default speakers.
I check playback devices, Balance is not there on the list.
I remember this being a problem now that I remember when I first set Balance up on this computer, but I don't know where I found the solution to the problem. I think it had something to do with the device manager, but...boy is this frustrating.
Does this problem sound familiar to anyone? I could use a point in the right direction.
