I have a PD 552 USB Sound device. There are available drivers for it on the web and perhaps there is a way to recognize it using Ubuntu tools. I just have no idea of how to go about installing it.

Any help/suggestions would be welcome

If you are using Intrepid or newer go to System-->Preferences-->Sound, and make sure your device shows up in the list.

I have a usb headset, that I need in Windows for skype, as Windows doesn't detect the internal microphone on my Logitech webcam, it shows up in the sound utility by its usb device number. To find the device number for your device, open an Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal and type:


lsusb

the result should look something like this:


lsusb

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 045e:074f Microsoft Corp.

This is what I receive from the command. It shows up as device 7 but I still don't receive any sound from the headset.
