Yes I am getting the same error msg.  Have followed the instructions and tried everything I can think of or have read on forums etc but still get the 0x8004005 error msg.  The current firmware is reading as 1.0 and am attempting to update to 1.45.

Is the Faderport Classic on Windows 10 64bit

I got this answer from Presonus Tech Support :

Hello Magnus,

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to assist you.

Please understand that the FaderPort classic cannot be updated on a USB 3.0 connection.

You will need to connect and update your FaderPort on a computer that has USB 2.0 connections.

You have some viable options.

- Find any other computer with USB 2.0 connection and update.


- Use a commonly available powered USB 2.0 hub.  Connect the FaderPort to this and update."

So I have to find some old USB 2 hub or Mac. I have tried to connect vis keyboard USB (2.0) but same error code.....

My Faderport Classic works fine with FW 1.0 so far....

/cheers M

So I connected via an old USB 2.o hub and voila : sucess : finally upgraded FW to 1.45. So try to use a USB 2.0 native usb or a USB 2.0 hub : that will probably do the trick .

/thanks for all answers and cheers M

Still not working, USB 2.0 right off the motherboard. unplugged everything except keyboard & mouse. running windows 10 (1803) unfortunately its still buggy.  v1.0 still works.

Okay so its seems to be a issue with the Faderport Classic firmware update in UC : as I posted before I had success on my Mac OS with an old external USB 2.0 hub : it did the trick for me. But there seems to be problems with Windows 64-bit .I hope Presonus adress this problem in next UC update.....

/cheers M
