USB Microscope gets registered as sound device by Windows 10

my Plugable USB Microscope gets registered as a sound device by windows 10 and not as a camera and does not show up as a camera device on any of my viewers

Thanks for contacting us!

It’s expected that a portion of the microscope would be enumerated as a sound device. The chipset has the ability to attach a mic, so part of this will show up as a sound device.

I’d like to take a look at the state of your system, see what could be going wrong. If you could, contact me at so I can get some more info from you.
