Gadget II Appears in Shell but Not Output Settings


Eos detects a Gadget II under Detected Modules in the Maintenance tab of the ETCNomad Shell, but does not output from the Gadget and it does not appear in the Setup -> System -> Output table.

Description/Explanation of Issue

This occurs when the Eos software cannot properly communicate with the Gadget II, but the device itself is working.


Several underlying issues can cause this.

  1. No driver, or an incorrect driver, is associated with the Gadget — Manual Installation of Gadget Driver on Windows
  2. Another application such as Concert or Updaterator is using the device
  3. Ensure you are running the latest version of Eos software
  4. If running on MacOS, ensure Eos has access to Input Monitoring

If none of the above options help, contact ETC Technical Services.
