Just tried installing Audiobox and Studio One for the first time... had the same issues. Has anyone had any success yet?

Try plugging it into the back of the computer, i.e. directly into the motherboard, rather than the front.

Sounds stupid and simple but worked first try.

I'm having similar issues. And I'm using a laptop, plugging it into the same USB 2.0 port every time, so the whole "plug it into the back of the computer" thing isn't helpful.
