I got Audacity 3.0.2 running on my Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) (Version 21H1) and when I select the USB input from my ionaudio Tape2PC and click on record, I get the following error message:
Error opening recording device.
Error code: -9999 Unanticipated host error.
Can anybody help in troubleshooting this and eventually solve it?
OK, this could be a number of things.
Do you have Windows permission to use your microphone? Turn on app permissions for your microphone in Windows 10
Try Transport > Rescan audio devices
Try switching between MME and WASAPI.
For other suggestions, type “9999” into the search bar in the upper right-hand corner of this page.
The above was it! For some reason, Windows was permitted using the mic, but the desktop apps weren’t anymore
