    Samsung audio 3.5mm audio dongle/DAC - works fine in Windows 10


    Hey guys,

    I want to make this work also on Windows 7, if possible.

    This is the product: USB-C Headphone Jack Adapter Mobile Accessories - EE-UC10JUWEGUS | Samsung US
    In Windows 7, it presents itself as: "Samsung Type-C to 3.5pi gender adapter"
    But device manager also specifies: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

    On Windows 10, it seems to use this one automatically: AudioEndpoint.inf

    [Version]Signature="$Windows NT$"
    Provider=%MSFT%
    ClassGUID={C166523C-FE0C-4A94-A586-F1A80CFBBF3E}
    Class=AudioEndpoint
    DriverVer = 12/06/2019,10.0.19041.1


    [ControlFlags]
    BasicDriverOk=*
    ExcludeFromSelect=*
    PreConfigureDriver=*


    [ClassInstall32]
    AddReg = ClassInstall_AddReg


    [ClassInstall_AddReg]
    HKR,,,0,%ClassName%
    HKR,,NoInstallClass,,1
    HKR,,SilentInstall,,1
    HKR,,IconPath,%REG_MULTI_SZ%,"%%SystemRoot%%\system32\mmres.dll,-3004"


    [Manufacturer]
    %MSFT%=Microsoft, NTamd64


    [Microsoft.NTamd64]
    %MSFT.AudioEndpoint% = NO_DRV,MMDEVAPI\AudioEndpoints


    [NO_DRV]


    [NO_DRV.Services]
    AddService = , %SPSVCINST_ASSOCSERVICE% ; null service install


    [strings]
    ;Localizable Strings
    MSFT = "Microsoft"
    ClassName = "Audio inputs and outputs"
    MSFT.AudioEndpoint = "Audio Endpoint"


    ;Non-Localizable Strings
    SPSVCINST_ASSOCSERVICE = 0x00000002

    REG_MULTI_SZ = 0x00010000
    I tried to add this AudioEndpoint.inf as driver in Windows 7, but it doesn't see it.

    Any ideas?

    There is no specific brand of computer. It's a DIY. But it doesn't matter, that dongle is an USB dongle and we should focus on it.

    Hi

    As its a C type USB device, the PNP drivers are not included within the W7 OS driver library
    @SIW2 might be able to assist
    (added to signature??)


    had a look at the reviews for this device ...... there pretty poor

    They sell a whole plethora of this type of USB C audio adapter on Amazon which are a lot better.

    If you're just looking for a small USB audio adapter, I bought ten of 'em on eBay for around twenty bucks $20. Here's what I bought, not exactly from that seller though.


    Why did I buy ten of them? Who doesn't want 70.10 audio in their TV room? LOL!

    Just kidding. It was for a project. HAHA
