    Windows 10 and Yeti mic

    Hi all,

    Having issues with the driver for the yeti mic on windows 10. Ironically its just a default microsoft plug and play driver, but on some boots it does not work properly, and I either need to reboot or switch usb ports.

    Could be a usb power issue from motherboard, but that would not explain its intermittent nature. Have tried a few fixes like uninstalling driver and letting it re-install, but nothing fixes this long term.

    Not a massive issue, but a bit of a pain.

    Any advice would any others that have had and resolved this issue would be fantastic.

    Have you tried/can you try the mic in a different machine and see if the issue re-occurs?
    Is it always a failure at boot or does it ever disappear/fail while the PC is already running?

    Couple of possibly related threads:

    Also, there was one user who apparently found a difference in behaviour between USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. He found the mic was fine in older USB ports but had issues in 3.0.

    Hi Galant,

    Thanks for the response.

    Its always upon boot; either Windows says it has a driver error and it does not work, or nothing is reported. Sometimes goes a week without an issue after reboots, other times more often.

    Can get around it by plugging it into a different port and or rebooting; but either is a bit of a pain.

    Have tried on USB2.0 and USB3.0 ports; same problem regardless.

    Will try on my laptop instead see if that makes a difference. If its USB power shortage could always try plugging into monitor or getting a powered usb port I guess...

    Thanks again for the advice; appreciated

    It's probably not a massive help, but if it's showing up as a standard PnP device then that may be your issue. My Yeti shows up as the below
