    I purchased a new USB mic and installed it on my PC. However, I received a message that my device is not compatible and I need to record using Desktop, PC, or iPad device.

    USB Mic Problems.


    The next step is what I suggested originally. Try it in a friend's PC or take it to Best Buy and ask them to try it one of their PC's. Have to confirm the mic is working OK.

  3. windows problems with usb mic

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to run the Hardware Troubleshooter by following the steps provided below and check if the issue persists.

    Method 1:


    • Type “Troubleshooting” on the search bar.

    • Click on troubleshooting, then click on “Hardware and sound”.

    • Under Hardware and sound, click on “hardware and devices”.

    • A pop-up will appear, click on the “Next” button and your hardware troubleshooting will start.
    Method 2: Disable and re-enable all the
    Universal Serial Bus controllers (USB) controllers.

    The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager.

    To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, Click on
      Device Manager
      .

    • Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

    • Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click
      Uninstall to remove it.

    • Repeat the above step for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

    • Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
    Regards.

    USB mic

    Windows 10 has USB mic grayed out in sound/recording

    I have Samson C01U USB microphone. This mic worked perfectly with Windows 8.1. Upgraded to Windows 10 and I now have issues. Device Manager says the device is working properly. The Sound/Recording tab say the mic is ready, yet it is grayed out in the recording
    device list. Another USB mic (integrated with Webcam) works fine. Comments, suggestions, advice? Better yet, solution?
