Hey guys, I've tried this about 30 times now, and am still finding myself unable to install the driver successfully.

I've gotten the newest drivers from
In fact, I've tried using all four listed drivers, but to no avail.

My problem is that each time that I run them to install, once it asks me to connect the Audiobox, I do so, it says it hasn't installed properly (which guides have said are normal) then I click 'Install Drivers' and it just gives the same error message asking me to restart my computer and telling me that they did not install properly.

I fully uninstall the drivers and Audiobox each time that I try. I've tried connecting Audiobox to each of the six different USB ports on my tower, and it seems to make no difference. I've made sure that the power limitations to the hubs are deactivated, however I think that the fact that all of my USB ports are hubs might be my issue. I can hear playback while the Audiobox is connected to my computer through the headphones, but when I run Studio One 2 for example, there is connection options for the Audiobox, as if it weren't connected (although I can hear the playback of the two condenser microphones that I have connected to it). I just purchased this yesterday, and have been trying to get it to work since then. It's really frustrating. Let me know what other specs I should post because I really want to get this to work.

USB 2 or USB 3 ports? And they will all show as hubs in device manager.

No I'm not a freaking pilot!! The Air Force won't let me have a suit with a zipper...or sometimes shoestrings.

My advice and suggestions should never be considered advice or suggestions. These are mostly insane ramblings of a poor aircraft mechanic who can, strangely enough, still hear.

Found the solution !

The USB cable is too long !

I had the same problem... tried a lot of different cable (all the same lenght though...) and tried the total uninstallation and re-installation, nothing worked

I shortened the USB cable and now everything works perfectly !

(or you could just buy a 3-feet cable)

We generally don't recommend shortening your own cables, but hey - if it works for you...
