Rfid Wedge reader wont stop beeping when I plug it in

Hello, I got the NeXT implant about 6 months ago and i bought some supplies to go with it. I recently started messing around with my implant again recently but my wedge reader wont stop beeping when i plug it into my laptop. it wont write either. am i forgetting something? It would stay silent and write fine when i first got it. Any Help would be great, thank you.

Try different laptops, other usb ports, if it’s the same, the kbr1 is probably broken.

you can search this forum and see others have had this same issue and it usually ends up being that the USB port the reader is plugged into is under powered, or performing some kind of power saving which basically “browns out” the reader and it resets itself over and over (beep beep beep)

It’s likely a driver related issue. I had the same problem on my desktop and narrowed it down but my keyboard doesn’t work without that specific driver and I don’t feel like getting a different one.

Some folks have desoldered the speaker and that seems to work okay but YMMV.

It can also be a power issue. Others have stated that adding a powered USB hub between the reader and the computer resolves the problem for them.

Well we might kind of be saying the same thing. It’s the drivers affecting the output in order to save power or some other reason. In my case the same ports work fine when that specific driver is disabled. I will order a usb voltmeter to check.
