Reverse Stereo? Left to Right?

    Reverse Stereo? Left to Right?

    Hi

    Can I make Vista to reverse the stereo sound -- having the left sound play
    on the right side and vice versa?

    I have external speakers hooked up to my computer, and due to the short
    cables on the speakers, it works better if the left speaker is on the right,
    but thus my stereo is wrong...

    Any ideas?

    Just reverse the physical placement of your speakers.

    yes, such cables exist - often sold as extensions for headsets.

    Try a Radio Shack or other electronics store.

    You should be able to get extension cables for just about any type of
    connector. Most PC speaker systems use mini-jacks... you should be able to
    find a mini-jack extension at your local Radio Shack.

    Hi.. I have not dealt with Vista yet. But on my XP machine, I'm using
    Realtek sound card and the drivers I got comes with a utility. Maybe you
    should find out the manufacturer of your sound card and download the drivers
    plus utility to fine tune your sound card, if such utility exist. Just a
    thought.

    Regards.

    You can buy either longer cables or buy adapters (female jacks at both ends)
    to create your own longer cables.

    what i meant by i don't think you can is i don't think you can do what you
    were talking about but like i was saying in the first place which no one is
    answering your answer is that you are better off with a extension cable
