UMIK-1 is not recognized by REW

I was using REW without any problems yesterday and unplugged the mic to do some work in the room. Today i plug it back in and REW doesn't see it. I am using the same cable plugged into the same USB port. The mic lights up to show power but that is it. I tried a different USB port but it still doesn't work. I re installed ASIO software and REW... Still doesn't see it. I have unplugged, and re plugged it in to make sure it is in all the way, still nothing. I have rebooted my PC, no difference. Any ideas what went wrong? Did my mic fail?

The connector at the mic end is quite stiff, needs to be pushed in fairly hard to connect properly, otherwise the mic gets power but no comms. There is a click when it is fully home.

I have tried your solution and it is still not recognized by my PC. I have noticed there is some play in the connection... Is there supposed to be some play?

Hey Ellis, mine "clicks" as john said. I can make wiggle by grabbing the connector and moving it , but this is minimal enough that it might be a trick of my eyes. I would say it shouldn't have any play in it.

I will try it one more time on another computer... If it still doesn't work I will have to call about warranty repair/replacement.

Ron,

Is the mic recognized by Windows? If it is, then it not the mic or connector and is an REW issue.

Can you try a different USB port? Different computer? I don't have a UMIK so I don't know, but can you try a different USB cable?

I just got off the phone with Cross Spectrum Labs, and they told me to send it to them and they will send out a replacement Very nice people to do business with.
