I know that this topic has been discussed here on this forum for a lot. I have read as much as I could on those threads and responses. And yet, I am not able to solve the issue I am having with my PerfectWave DAC II. I apologies for making yet another thread, but I did not see any other way…
So recently I bought PWD DAC. I hooked it up with CD player and it plays very well. No issues. I then hooked up the DAC with my computer and that is when the issues started. I realized that I needed to install a USB Driver. So I went ahead and downloaded the USB Driver 2.0 files on my laptop. I extracted all the files in a folder. Then clicked on “Setup” file to begin the installation. A new window popped up and asked my to shut down all other applications for more efficient and troublefree installation of the driver. I made sure of it.
Then it asked me to make the connection between the DAC and computer. I did that with USB cable. Nothing happened. It displayed a message that unplug and replug the device. I have so far tried rebooting the computer and DAC many times. I have gone through three different USB cables including a printer USB cable. The computer I am using has windows 10. I have tried three different computers including one with windows 7. I have also made sure the status on firmware which is 2.9.7.
What else can I do… The DAC is an excellent product. I really want to enjoy it with my media server (windows). One thing, I do not have the bridge. Does that make any difference? Any help, I would really appreciate.
