    Hello. I have problem with Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. I plugged it into the USB 3.0 port on usb controller that is recommended by you (Inateck KTU3FR-4P) and it simply doesn’t work at all. I tried to plug it by extension cord and without it – nothing work. Windows says that default eyechip driver cannot be installed for some reason, and Tobii installer app do not detect my Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. It just says “but first, please connect the eye tracker” but I have it connected to the right USB 3.0 port.

    Others things like flash drivers, game conntrollers, midi controllers work perfect, without any problem.

    Please help.

    My PC:

    ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX
    AMD FX-9590
    XFX Radeon RX 480 8Gb
    Patriot Sector5 VIPER II DDR3 4x4GB
    Inateck KTU3FR-4P USB Controller
    Windows 7 SP 1
    All drivers are up to date.

    Hi @wlocz, sorry to hear about your issues.

    Certainly the first thing to investigate is the issue of Windows not being able to install the driver. Also, check your BIOS is the most up to date to ensure chipset compatibility.

    How do other USB devices function on the USB ports? I would also consider looking at the Inateck forum (or contacting their support) asking about this driver problem.

    Finally, is there some means you have to test the Tobii on another system in the unlikely event their is a hardware fault with the tracker?

    It seems the ASUS SABERTOOTH has front USB3 panels.. do they detect the Tobii Tracker?

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Other USB devices works well (I have tested all of USB ports that my PC have) Only eye tracker doesn’t work. No matter what port I use. Tobii does not work on all of them.

    The Inateck KTU3FR-4P controller I’ve bought specially for the Tobii eye tracker. I have USB 3.0 ports on my motherboard, but it’s a ASMEDIA USB ports, which are known to not work properly with Tobii, as written on this page:

    https://help.tobii.com/hc/en-us/articles/209529749-Recommended-USB-3-0-Controllers

    I will try to test it on another computer, and update the BIOS. Maybe this helps.

    1. Check your Windows Update service. It should be running.
    2. http://www.usbdev.ru/files/asmedia/asmusbhostdriver/ – ASMedia USB Host Controller Driver v1.16.49.1 works fine for ASUS Sabretooth 990fx MB. No problems with USB 3.0 connection for Eye Tracker 4c at all.

    I returned the tracker to shop where I bought it. They send me another one, but it was no changes. So I demanded to refund it. I don’t want to play with it anymore. Too many problems for me. I specially bought USB card for pcie recommended by Tobii support and as you can guess nothing happen.
    A friend of mine have similar problem on Windows 10. He bought a monitor with tracker preinstalled and it works only on two usb cables(!), but games crashes so often (newest Assassin for example)
