    It’s probably having trouble reading the device. Try some different USB plugs on your PC. If you were using some on the front, make sure you try a few on the back. It’s easy for the cables that go to the front ones to get loose.

    If none of this helps I’d suggest trying some other usb devices, and try using this device on some other pcs to see if you can isolate the issue.
