Installing 5.1 Surround USB Headset HS-6200 in Windows XP X64

Trust doesn't support Windows XP X64 with drivers. So doesn't their 5.1 Surround USB Headset: "HS-6200".

But similar to the Epson Perfection 2480 Photo case, the Windows Vista X64 drivers work for Windows XP X64!

Just download the Windows Vista X64 drivers and install them in Windows XP X64. The installation of the control panel applet won't work but the driver will!

So you are stuck with the drivers' default settings which are: Input mode: 2 Channels, Output mode: 6 Channels (Speakers) so the bass boost will work!

Please notice that the driver caused quite some system load for me in Windows XP X64 so otherwise fluent Sega Rally turned into a non-fluent experience.

The headset is based on C-Media's CM106 sound chip. The CM106 sound chip is known for causing small white noise when the micro is not deativated in Windows' audio device's settings. (But it's not too bad I think, I never bothered!).


You may also C-Media's own drivers but they won't support the bass boost! (And the control panel of this release doesn't work eitzher!
