I had the same issue and I found it here:
control panel --> sounds and audio devices --> audio --> sound playback
Looks like it used to set it automatically but some recent update to XP might have changed that. Works like a charm now. =)

I purchased them today for my iMac - no sound.
I try them on my PC with XP Home, and after checking all setting - no sound.
I read good reviews about the V20, but seeing there are so many people with the same problem - no sound - I am disappointed... Logitech!!! What is going on here??
What do I do now?

Windows found new hardware: "Logitech USB speaker" and a "USB Device".
I see the speakers in the Device Manager. All settings are correct. And yet, no sound (I am playing a song while I write this, and I hear no sound). Something is _definitely_ wrong with this kind of speakers.
I want my money back...

May I ask what exactly you changed there (in Control Panel > Sounds & Audio Devices > Audio tab)?
Even with the "Logitech USB speakers" selected, I hear no sound. I have marked/unmarked about every single thing I possibly could mark/unmark. No sound, though.
And even if it were that kind of incorrect setting, that does not explain why my V20 speakers stay silent on my Mac with OS X "Tiger" and on my PC with Ubuntu 10.7 (that is linux), too.
I received an answer by email from Logitech. No change, still no sound. I wait for their reply.
Maybe I should just dump these and simply go buy the other speakers from Creative that I first saw... (Were € 20,00 cheaper too, for that matter).

Couldn't they simply answer on this forum just to say if it would be (or not) one day possible to use those things we bought , and (as they continue to claim) should be working perfectly.
As I don't have too much money I cannot buy new ones and as I don't want to sell the V20 (as I am not sure they work) , I have to wait the day they will work correcly. For now, I can't do nothinng else than something for the google searchers.
DON'T BUY LOGITECH V20 LAPTOP NOTEBOOK SPEAKERS USB POWERED. THEY WOULDN'T WORK. AND LOGITECH IS NOT CONCERNED BY THE WAY THEIR PRODUCTS WORK.
N'ACHETEZ PAS LES ENCEINTES LOGITECH V20 POUR ORDINATEUR PORTABLE, CABLE USB INTÉGRÉ. ELLE NE MARCHERONT PAS. ET LOGITECH SEMBLE NE PAS SE SOUCIER DU BON FONCTIONNEMENT DE SES PRODUIT.

I changed the "default device" in the drop down menu in "Sound Playback". It had been the Dell device (whatever that was . . . ) and I changed it to the Logitech USB option. Hope that helps!

Maybe I should just throw them in the trash and instead go buy those (non-USB) speakers from Creative that were there too...
I wait for a second (email) answer from Logitech, but I am gravely disappointed.
