T480 - Cannot change microphone properties

2019-01-10, 13:26 PM
I am not able to change the microphone properties on an USB external microphone. The default setting has sample rate of 8000 Hz and I want to change it to 44100 HZ. When I make the change I get the following warning: "The device is being used by another application. If you continue, that application will stop working. Do you want to continue?" When I select "Yes", it doesn't change the setting. I disabled the other 2 audio devices (Intel Audio Display Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio), then tried to make the change but got the same error. I am moving from a T420s to a T480 and didn't have issue with this on the T420. Any suggestions? Thanks, Stuart
