USB sound cards installed but does not show in playback devices.

Title says it all really. A while ago the audio jack in my laptop broke so I purchased a simple USB to audio stick. Problem is that it was supposed to be plug and play but after installation I couldn't get it to work.
It shows up in Device Manager as 'USB Headphone Set' and also in System Information Sound Devices as a USB Audio Device but never as a Playback Device. I've tried uninstalling it and then reinstalling it multiple times, I've tried uninstalling the Realtek audio device to make sure it wasn't some conflict, I've made sure I had files such as usbaudio.sys and usb.inf
. I'm considering just buying a better stick but I just want to be 100% sure that's not something I've overlooked. Any help is really appreciated.

  1. How about you let us know WHICH usb audio stick you bought and which version of windows you're running?
