Looking in device manager - the audio devices all say working OK. But on bar at bottem of screen get speaker with red cross - Playing audio - Audio trouble shouter cannot find any problems. Sound settings say - No output or Input devices found. Have tried to re-install Realtek audio drivers for motherboard - installed but no change. Thanks for the info, however, I had already tried everything. The apple device driver was never on my computer, however, I was able to install it after installing a program called 'Driver Update' for some reason when I downloaded the 'Apple mobile device driver' it did not install, but after downloading the driver update program, there was no problem and the file installed without a hitch. Input Output Audio Driver Controller is an application designed to help you view the input and output drivers of the sound cards you have installed on your computer. The package provides the installation files for Microsoft USB Input Device Driver version 10.0.4. If the driver is already installed on your system, updating (overwrite-installing) may fix various issues, add new functions, or just upgrade to the available version. Go to Device Manager (right click on My Computer, choose Manage and then find Device Manager in the left panel), or right click on Start Menu for Windows 10 and select Device Manager.

This article helps to fix an issue in which Windows 10 doesn't install specific drivers for USB audio devices on the first connection.

Original product version: Windows 10, version 1703
Original KB number: 4021854

Symptom

When you connect a USB audio device to a Windows 10 Version 1703-based computer the first time, the operating system detects the device but loads the standard USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) instead of the specific device driver.

Input

Cause

This issue occurs because the USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) isn't classified as a generic driver in Windows 10 Version 1703. Therefore, the system assumes that a compatible, nongeneric driver is installed for the device even though the driver is generic.

This issue also causes Windows 10 Version 1703 to postpone the search for other compatible drivers through Windows Update that typically occurs immediately after you install a new device.

Resolution

To fix this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

To resolve this issue, install update 4022716.

Method 2

If the device-specific driver is distributed through Windows Update, you can manually update the driver by using Device Manager. For more information about how to do this, see update drivers in Windows 10.

Method 3

If the device is not yet connected, first install the device-specific driver, such as by using the appropriate installer. After the device-specific driver is installed, Windows 10 will select that driver instead of the standard USB audio 2.0 driver when you first connect the device.

Note

See the device manufacturer's user guide for specific instructions about how to install the driver.

Method 4

If the driver isn't distributed through Windows Update, you can manually reinstall the driver. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Install the device-specific driver (see Method 2).
  2. Open Device Manager.
  3. Right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device, and then select Uninstall.
  4. Restart the computer.

When it restarts, Windows will try to reinstall the device by using the device-specific driver.

Human Interface Devices (HID) is a device class definition to replace PS/2-style connectors with a generic USB driver to support HID devices such as keyboards, mice, game controllers, etc. Prior to HID, devices could only utilize strictly-defined protocols for mice and keyboards. Hardware innovation required either overloading data in an existing protocol or creating non-standard hardware with its own specialized driver. HID provided support for these “boot mode” devices while adding support for hardware innovation through extensible, standardized and easily-programmable interfaces.

HID devices today include a broad range of devices such as alphanumeric displays, bar code readers, volume controls on speakers/headsets, auxiliary displays, sensors and many others. Many hardware vendors also use HID for their proprietary devices.

HID began with USB but was designed to be bus-agnostic. It was designed for low latency, low bandwidth devices but with flexibility to specify the rate in the underlying transport. The specification for HID over USB was ratified by the USB-IF in 1996 and support over additional transports followed soon after. Details on currently supported transports can be found in HID Transports Supported in Windows. 3rd-party, vendor-specific transports are also allowed via custom transport drivers.

HID Concepts

HID consists of two fundamental concepts, a Report Descriptor, and Reports. Reports are the actual data that is exchanged between a device and a software client. The Report Descriptor describes the format and meaning the data that the device supports.

Reports

Applications and HID devices exchange data through Reports. There are three Report types: Input Reports, Output Reports, and Feature Reports.

Report TypeDescription
Input ReportData sent from the HID device to the application, typically when the state of a control changes.
Output ReportData sent from the application to the HID device, for example to the LEDs on a keyboard.
Feature ReportData that can be manually read and/or written, and are typically related to configuration information.

Each Top Level Collection defined in a Report Descriptor can contain zero (0) or more reports of each type.

Usage Tables

The USB-IF working group publishes HID Usage Tables that are part of the Report Descriptors that describe what HID devices are allowed to do. These HID Usage Tables contain a list with descriptions of Usages, which describe the intended meaning and use of a particular item described in the Report Descriptor. For example, a Usage is defined for the left button of a mouse. The Report Descriptor can define where in a Report an application can find the current state of the mouse’s left button. The Usage Tables are broken up into several name spaces, called Usage Pages. Each Usage Page describes a set of related Usages to help organize the document. The combination of a Usage Page and Usage define the Usage ID that uniquely identifies a specific Usage in the Usage Tables.
