Question about Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Headset

2 Answers

USB Device Not Recognized...

This headset was working great for months, then I unplug them so I can manage some things on a mass storage device. When I plug them in the next day, I get the dreaded USB Device Not Recognized bubble. Restarting and all those simple things hasn't helped. I'm running on Vista Home Premium. The entire message says:

"One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message."

Of course, "clicking this message" does no good. It just suggests that I try to unplug and plug back in the headset, which does nothing. Anyone have any ideas? I live in a dorm room and can't really play games, listen to music, etc. without disturbing my roommate until I get this resolved.

    My headset worked great for about 3 months then just stopped altogether. My computer doesn't even notice it when its plugged in to any of the 3 usb ports, though the usb plug gets warm and the red light on the mic turns on when plugged in.

    Same thing, worked for a few months, now "not recognized." This should not have died after just a few months.

    I have the same problem... Is logitech going to release some download so it fixes this problem?

  • Brian Hollister Dec 09, 2008

    Add me to the list. Just got this problem today. Will not work on any of six PCs in my office or my MacBook. Noticed that the "Unknown Device" in Device manager shows up with PnP ID VID_0000&PID_0000. Makes sense that Windows (and MacOS) can't recognize it.

    Had this problem with a USB keyboard once and got that working by enabling USB keyboard support in the BIOS and rebooting with the keyboard plugged in. No idea why it worked. Perhaps the BIOS reset something in the hardware to make it identify itself correctly. Tried that here, and didn't do anything for me ('course this isn't a keyboard).

    I'll be contacting Logitech to see what I can get out of them.

    Hi, I have the same problem with my Clearchat Pro USB. I was listening to music at the library (I'm at college) and when I went back to my room after having unplugged it from my laptop, I get the message, "USB device not recognized, there is a malfunction..." I hope to call Logitech and find a solution, I will try the BIOS reset though, maybe that will kickstart the stupid OS.

    Logitech will replace them if you call up, I think I'll just exchange mine at the store.

  • getamoveon Mar 06, 2009

    USB device not recognized!!! I'm on XP Pro.

    Going through most blogs, I see Logitech are not interested in figuring a fix for this, and unfortunately the only technical solution I found, which is to go to cmd, and from c:\windows\inf run >expand wdma_usb.in_ -r, only gives a message that system cannot open entry file wdma_usb.in_



    This is probably the last product I buy from Logitech - Goodbye!

    Same problem. Unrecognized device the very first time I plugged it in. Using Windows XP.

  • Anonymous May 12, 2009

    Same problem on a Mac Pro. Doesn't register when plugged in (to any port on the system I have now been using this headset for a year in). plugging into another computer works, and plugging anything else into the same USB ports the headset failed to recognize in works. Since the same issue is reported across multiple OSs I would suspect the Logitech hardware or software

  • Anonymous May 13, 2009

    Exactly the same problem, and as I see this headset sucks and must have a fundamental problem!

I'm running on XP Pro. The entire message says:

    Of course, "clicking this message" does no good. Itjust suggests that I try to unplug and plug back in the headset, whichdoes nothing. ...poof!

Hi,
The main reason for getting this message is that the USB chip or part of the connection to the chip has failed. The best way to test to see if the product is defective is to try it on another computer.
This will tell you if the product or the computer port has failed.

One day, I uninstalled USB Mass Storage Device along with a bunch of other ones (eg. USB Root Hub & some other ones) The USB Root Hubs and the other ones re-installed but the USB Mass Storage Device...


The hubs were most likely the USB hardware that is a part of your computer, but the USB Mass Storage Device is a part of some hardware that you had plugged in at some point (maybe a USB flash drive, maybe a USB external drive). In order to reinstall the Mass Storage Device, you have to plug that hardware back in and let it reinstall. If you aren't aware already, sometimes you plug in one device, but it installs as more than one device (it's actually supposed to). So you won't always have a one-to-one ration of hardware and installed devices, since some of them show up as more than one device. And typically, when plug a new device in for the first time, the computer can only see one device, then it instals that one device, and only then can it see the other (virtual) devices, which it then installs. The next time you plug that device in, it sees & activates all of the devices instantly & silently (not counting the little "plug in" sound it makes).

There are several reason why your flash drive is not working. You can try this and see if it will work:
STEP 1 - Connect the Cruzer to the PC

If you receive a "USB Device Not Recognized" error on the computer, the flash drive is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.
id107-1.gif

2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
id10-2-3.gif

NOTE: The Cruzer might show up under several places under Device Manager such as:
1. Disk Drives
2. DVD/CD-ROM drives
3. Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage.

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.
id10-2-note.gif


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click on the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
id10-2-4.gif

2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
id10-3-2.gif


STEP 4 - Verify if the flash drive is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the Cruzer under devices with removable storage.

USB Device Not Recognized...


Your headset is faulty. Open it to check for loose wires.

Can't get the software to detect the device


should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly

My Olympus FE-340 is not recognized by my PC operating on XP


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Sony Ericsson media manager software


What OS are you running? Does your system use USB 1.1 or USB 2.0? Try powering off your w910, wait a few seconds to make sure it completely cycles off, then connect your phone to your PC. It should turn on in USB (ie. 'Mass Storage') mode. If Windows attempts to Autoplay the device, Cancel the dialog. If Windows attempts to install any drivers for the device (or Vista prompts you to scan the device), Cancel the dialog(s). If you go into 'My Computer', is your phone recognized here (as a USB Mass Storage Device)? If not, the app is not going to recognize it either. Try disconnecting any other USB devices or memory card readers.
