Audio FX Sound Board - drive not showing up

by rmrtrr on Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:11 pm

I purchased the Audio FX Soundboard and got it all nice and soldered up (and hot glued) after testing the outputs... I was disappointed to see that I could not upload my audio files - the drive simply does not show up.

Things I have tried:

- 4 different micro USB cables
- 2 laptops (windows and Mac, and different USB ports in each one)
- Waiting for 15 minutes to see if the drive eventually shows up
- Visually inspecting the board for damage - none found (green LED is on, red LED off, output 1 plays the sound "left" when activated - pre-programmed)

I'd appreciate your assistance with this.

This sounds like the USB cable is still the culprit. Do you have any other USB based microcontroller or storage devices that you can use with your cables to confirm that one or more of them is a good DATA cable?

I'll be honest- I rolled my eyes at your response at first. Nonetheless, I diligently tested yet another USB cable (one I've used to program arduinos in the past) and it worked!

Thank you! :))

Yeah, unfortunately it is pretty much always the cable. Thank you for trying.
