Having problems with your Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers ?

Speakers not listed in sound output options

\015 I've had my iMac and the Harman Kardon soundsticks for almost 6 years. One day I noticed the sound was coming from the smaller external speakers, not the soundsticks. I opened the System Preferences to choose the soundsticks for output and it wasn't listed as an option. I checked to make sure everything was hooked up properly and it was. I've also tried hooking he usb cable to other ports and to my laptop - they're still not listed as an output option. Any ideas as to what happened and how I can fix it? Or is it just to get new ones?\015
