Hi.
        These speakers require drivers to work, since they eliminate the
need for an audio cable. They must operate on the computer as a sound card
of sorts, and this means they'll need drivers to run. Therefore, they won't
run on the Braillenote/Pacmate because those units don't have the necessary
drivers. The only exception to this might be the pacmate if the speaker
manufacturers or FS have made Pocket PC drivers, but that's very unlikely
indeed. With proprietary units like the Braillenote, I'd think it impossible
without an announcement from HW or the manufacturer of the speakers
specifically saying that the right drivers had been written.

Hi Pam,
These sound quite intriguing, if nothing else.  Thank you for the 
information, although it doesn't really answer your question.  <sheepish

Has anybody ever tried these, and do you think the MPower would be
able to power them? Or if anybody has used these successfully with the
Packmate let me know as well, since if they work with that they
probably would with the MPower:

I don't know if the drivers refer to software, in which case they
wouldn't work, or if they refer to something within the speakers.
Thanks.
