sound question

XP has sound options for 'device connect' and 'device disconnect'. I like it
especially when it triggers for USB devices. Was wondering if there's any
way to add these options to W2K's sound menu. I'm thinking there might be
because Norton Utilities (which is installed here) has options of its own in
the menu.

anybody?

But to send the events, you'd need access to the source code and compiler
used to make the program, and you'd have to speak the language the program
is written in (C, C++, Visual-Basic, or whatever), and be familiar with the
Win32 API for sending sound events to the OS.

To modify Win2K so that it plays certain sounds for certain hardware events,
you'd have to have the Windows 2000 source code. Bill could give you that...
but then he'd have to kill you. ;-)

So in short, no, I don't think you can modify Win2K to play certain
sounds when certain events happen, except to the extent that Win2K is
already set-up to play sounds for those events.
Yea, I kinda figured that when I went looking in the registry and saw sounds
listed for events, but that was it. You explained what I figured ... a call
for sound has to be programmed!

Thanks for the explanation!
BTW, glad you figured what was causing all the headaches with your W2k
setup. I went and reconfigured AGP settings here after reading your post!
