I was recently playing around with some of my sound settings / sound card because for what ever unknown reason my sound would just cut out on me while I was using my computer. More often this would happen when I was playing sound from multiple programs at the same time ( games, youtube, itunes ).

So I think I managed to fix that problem but in doing so whenever I plug in my USB head set (razer megalodon 7.1) my sound won't automatically redirect to it. I have to go into my sound playback and set it as my default to get them to work.

Is there a way to fix this? I'm using windows 7. It used to redirect it, but not anymore.

Does the head show up as a headset at all? – soandos Nov 24 '11 at 4:06
Well never mind. I figured it out. I just made my Headset the default output device. and when i unplug it it just goes back to my computer speakers. – Matthew Nov 24 '11 at 4:21
