I plugged in my Blue Yeti microphone (which works fine on my iMac) and get the following error from console. Apparently, IOUSBFamily cannot enumerate it.

Any ideas as to how I might fix this?

    Did you ever find a fix?  I've been using my Dragon Dictate microphone on my MacBook Pro for about a year, and then today, when I plugged it in, I got this:

    Has anyone find a fix for this?  I've been using my Dragon Dictate headset on my MacBook Pro for about a year, and then today, when I plugged it in, I got this:

     

    4/16/14 10:01:04.000 AM kernel[0]: USBF:    47.766    The IOUSBFamily is having trouble enumerating a USB device that has been plugged in.  It will keep retrying.  (Port 1 of Hub at 0x4000000)

    Here is what I have tried so far:

     

    • Reset the PRAM
    • Reset SMC
    • Verify disk (there were no problems)
    • Repair permissions
    • Boot with an external USB hard drive (which works fine on the "problem" computer) that contained an old SuperDuper clone of my hard drive from several months ago. I received the same "The IOUSBFamily was not able to enumerate a device" error when I plug in the headset.
    • Tried to headset on another computer, and it worked fine.
    • Plug in an external USB keyboard into the problem computer, and it works fine.

     

    All of this would lead me to conclude that it is a hardware problem. But it seems that if it were a hardware problem, the external USB keyboard and external USB hard drive would not work (which they do). If the problem were with the headset, it wouldn't work on another computer, but it does.  So I'm wondering if it's some sort of firmware issue…???????  URG!!!!!!
