My device doesn’t appear in the Windows® device manager. How do I make it appear?
If you device does not appear, first, make sure your device is properly plugged into your computer and is properly installed.
If your device still does not appear, it may have been disabled and hidden in the Windows® device manager.
To make it appear again in your device list, just right-click on the Windows® device manager window (in the Playback or Recording tab, depending on the device you are interested in) and then select “Show Disabled Device”.
