Problem with the Driver Installation for MG12 X U

Unread post by Breimi » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:19 pm

I use the MG 12 X U almost 2 years now and I'm very happy with it. I got it connected to my PC and both my Headphones and my Microphone are connected via the Mixer, so i can ajust it the way i want.

But recently i upgraded my Windows from 8.1 to 10. after that Upgraded i noticed that randomly my sound would end up in some kind of crackling noise while watching Videos or while playing Games. So i went to look after that problem and noticed that i was using the standard Windows USB Driver. then i proceeded to download the "Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver".

After Accepting all the Terms, the Installation process began, but ended promptly after 1 second and it told me that it was done installing.
So naturally i wanted to change the driver from my device, but then i noticed the Driver hasn't been installed. So i started the setup again, and got the same result out of it.

can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong or why the installation process doesn't work?

Hi Breimi, and welcome to the forums . . . .

Yamaha/Steinberg drivers are notoriously fussy about installation.

The correct ORDER of doing things must be followed precisely or the installation will fail, or only partially work.

I would UNINSTALL the windows driver in <Device Manager> completely first, and then repeat the installation,

following the instructions meticulously.

Let us know how it goes . . .

Thank you for your fast response.

I did what you told me, but it still won't work
