    For the second time, I'm getting the recognition issue. I cannot remember for the life of me what I did last time, but this time it refuses to be recognized. It works on other computers, and worked on this one yesterday. Nothing has changed on this computer. The firmware program will not work if the device is still unrecognized. There needs to be much more support around this error.

    I cannot get the fix to work. It says it cannot find the HID.

    I also need a fix for an Apple Mac. The mic is not recognised and the LED does not light up blue, it stays a steady amber.

    Help please.

    I connected, gave blue light, but after a few seconds, the light disappeared and it did not work anymore

    Got "Cannot find the HID device error"

    Nowhere to go from there.

    Looks like its a new mic.

    John Drummond,

    You mean you entered VID 0d8c and PID 016c at the bottom and it said that error when you pressed Connect? 

    What is the VID and PID shown if you follow the instructions in the PDF?

    Thanks for getting back!

    I have made some progress.  It was not showing up in device manager, so I moved to a different usb port and the light went from pale yellow to red.  I did the firmware update and I now have bright yellow and the mute button turns the light off.  I think we are on the way!  Will update tomorrow.....

    Fixed!  Thanks so much for your help!

    So for anyone else who has the problem, make sure device manager actually knows its there!

    USB ports are funny things and in my case changing from the one the front (which works) to the one on the back woke up device manager and then I did the firmware update as described here.

    So pleased to have the faithful Meteor back!

    Just found this thread while searching for a fix for my Meteor which stopped working. I had been experiencing some troubles with disconnection the other day. Now the PC won't recognize the USB device.

    I'm on Windows 8.1.

    I tired:

    - deinstalling the unknown USB device > restart the computer > plug mic in
    after the second try it showed up under audio devices as "Samson Meteor" but still had a pale yellow light and a warning sign in the device manager. Drivers are up to date, according to Windows. And after plugging out and back in, it went back to unrecognized USB device.

    - fixing the firmware with the method described in the fix above, gave me the error "Cannot find the HID device"

    - switching USB ports doesn't change anything.

    I'd appreciate help, since my podcast relies on that mic :-/
    Thank you!

    Out of the blue, the light turned blue (haha) - the second I sent the previous comment.

    Fingers crossed it stays that way...


    Too happy, too early :-(

    I could record a few seconds and then it went back to pale yellow and shows the same "behaviour" as before.
