r8 as an interface with android phone and hub crashes

Post by joecandy » Tue Oct 09, 2018 4:33 pm

i have a samsung note 3 phone as a recorder and use software to multitrack on it. this is connected to a mains powered usb 3 hub (7 port).
i also have the r8 plugged into this hub. the phone sees the r8 as an interface and works ok, recording and playing back. but every so often after recording or pressing buttons in the software too quickly, the phone locks up and reboots.
the writers of the recording software say its a usb problem. i have tried every port on the usb hub and still the same. is it the hub or the driver for the r8 which is the problem?

What driver are you using for the R8? :?:

I don't see an Android driver on the Zoom website: https://www.zoom-na.com/products/produc ... #downloads

Also, some devices can not recognize other devices when the devices are running through a hub, all they can see is the hub and all traffic connected to the hub is reported as the hub.
