I also have the logitech Z5 and i can't get the remote to work with windows 7. This product is really expensive and i don't understand that logitech doesn't release a new software for it. It's unbelievable. If anyone managed to use the remote under 7, please post the solution.

I too had trouble with the remote when I first set these speakers up. I actually wasn't surprised, because I read a review where someone said the speakers worked great, but the remote didn't. Anyway, I did what a previous poster in this discussion said, and went to the Logitech site and downloaded the up-to-date software for the z-5s. The remote is now working great.
I uninstalled the software that was on my computer (which I had installed using the CD that came with the speakers), and then downloaded and installed the software from the Logitech site. I don't plan to keep the CD, as the software on it doesn't seem to be current.
The Z-5s look like pretty nice speakers, the sound is good, and although I don't see myself using the remote all that much, I'm happy to know it works for when I want it.

well the speakers are great but the software is**bleep** crap. I have to reset the media control every time or the remote will not control winamp.and please update it as it is years old and allow it to work along with a regular sound card so we have headphone and mic support as well.btw a plugin for winamp/wmp that will shut down the media player when you prees the media button again on the remote would kick **** as well

Just got my speakers and the remote doesn't work either. I'm on windows xp and i didn't even try to install the cd, i directly installed the software from the website. no luck.
Mike, your question was ridiculous... give us some useful information instead: is any update coming along to fix all those issues? it can't just work randomly...
