Cannot open Yahama Steinberg USB ASIO Driver

Under “studio setup” the Yahama Steinberg USB ASIO Driver is listed as an option next to the Generic ASIO Driver, but when I select it, it says “Device could not be opened”.

The driver seems to be properly installed, as it appears under Windows 10 > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound.

I strictly followed the installation guidelines.

Please advise.


Is the Audio Device connected? Is it connected to USB2 Port (not USB 3)?
