Description of Issue

As soon as enable USB Drive Beta and press play I get “Audio Device Error” and no playback. If I disable it I get playback but it is bit depth and sample rate converted. I have removed and reinstalled ARC; restarted the phone and looked everywhere on the device for what is causing this. I am stumped!

Hi @Robert_Broder,

Thank you for the report. The team will investigate diagnostics from your account for a potential error. Stand by and we should have an update shortly.


I’m having the exact same issue. Trying to connect a Pixel 6 with latest updates to a Nuforce Icon DAC. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am using a USB-C to USB-A adapter at the phone. Works fine on the DAC with the Driver option unselected.
