Hi all.

I have a usb headset that I use for headphones and playing games. Recently, my computer stopped automatically switching what audio device to use when playing sounds. It used to be when I plugged in my headphones it would switch to the headphones, and unplugged used my speakers again. Now, when I plug in my headphones I have to manually go in through my control panel and switch the audio device to my headset, then set it back when I unplug it.

Any reason this would have stopped working, or what I could do to fix it? The headphones still work...I just wish it was automatic.
