    My PS4 wired controller is recognised as an audio device


    I am currently in another country for a couple of months and left my PS4 controller at home. I bought a new one that includes a wire but I started having issues with it.

    When I went to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth and other devices, it said that the PS4 controller was recognised as audio.

    After doing some research, I was told to go to Control Panel >Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers, double-click on the PS4 controller, go toHardware, click on the Function with the Sound icon, click Properties, go to Drive and click Disable Device, and finally plug and replug the device. Unfortunately, the option for Disable Device was restricted.

    Could someone help me solve this problem?

    :)

  3. PS4 Controller Indentified as an Audio Device

    Hello.

    My PS4 controller is being identified as an audio device. I have disabled it, but it still does not work(Steam does not recognize it as a ps4 controller). And everytime I reconnect it, it goes back to being identified as an audio device(even tho I disabled
    it and later uninstalled it)
