1. Host devices do not recognize the device (the audio interface or the mic).

Through the survey, it is found that some users said that their host devices (PCs) can not recognize the audio interface or the microphone. If you also encounter similar problems, you can try the following methods.

A. Disconnect the Device and the PC or Unplug the PC’s Power Cable 

Unplug the device from the PC first, then plug the device back into the PC to check if it works. If the device does not work, please unplug the PC’s power cable (please turn off the PC before unplugging the power cable). Wait 15 minutes, and then restart the PC. Next, try to plug the device into the PC again to see if it works.

B. Change the Property of USB Root Hub

First, open “Device Manager” – expand “Universal Serial Bus Controllers” – right click “USB Root Hub” – “Properties”. Next, click the “Power Management” tab – uncheck the“Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”box.

C. Uninstall Hidden Devices

Enter the program command to show hidden devices, then uninstall them and reinsert the device.

D. Connect to Another PC
