    Zoom g5n effects pedal driver problems

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm not sure but all of the sudden (cubase elements 10- windows10 pro) the driver in my zoom g5n multi effects pedal doesn't work..Sometimes it will playback a project in my daw but it will not have any input from the pedal to the daw.Also when loading up the Daw from the beginning i get a warning saying that "the hardware (zoom g5n pedal)using this driver has been removed from this computer".But in the devices menu in Windows it clearly shows the g5n as a recognized device... I contacted zoom and cubase steinberg and they don't know..that's why I'm asking here...any suggestions?

    Uninstall the drivers. Make sure you delete the folders they are in, too. Then re-download and install.

    I did that over and over even as administrator.Asio4all doesn't solve it either , causes buzzing and popping.I reinstalled cubase elements 10.It could be something in the daw because the popup showing "hardware using this driver has been removed" shows up every now and then, but when it does work (the driver) it won't have any input from the g5n pedal just output..

    Time to ask Zoom what is going on!

    You could try to get the PC to re-establish a new connection with the pedal by removing what it thinks is there using this linked utility.... USBDeview v2.80 . Deleting a connection and starting over has fixed a few problems for me in the past.
    Right click the USB device to open the menu.

    The pedal does have a means to do a factory initialize to reset all settings if you get desperate and nothing is found on the PC end of troubleshooting. Save any patches first.

    Could plugging into the 3.0 usb port on my desktop have anything to do with damaging the ability of the g5n pedal to work in the cubase daw?
