My Wireless headset doesn't work on my 64Bit Win7. But luckily for me I have a backup 32Bit notebook, on this system the audio works fine. So what I was doing is plugging in this wireless device into the 32bit os, then connecting via rdc from the 64bit, and changing tracks like this - the only problem is that it takes long to load the rdc...

Is it possible to have a media player on the 64Bit machine, that plays tracks and controls the audio output of the 32Bit machine? without RDC or VNC, etc?

If both of these computers are running Windows 7, you can do this through Windows Media Player 12. (Ars Technica link)

Have you looked for Vista 64-bit drivers for your wireless headset? Those should solve the original problem rather than forcing you to find a work-around.

Thanks Red for your answer, Unfortunately the device doesn't have drivers, but I figured out what the problem was - amazingly the graphics driver was causing the problem. – JL. Sep 4 '09 at 6:29
