How to Add a Device to Corsair iCUE

If you are using the latest version of Corsair ICUE, then you don’t have to give extra effort to add the device. When you connect the ICUE compatible device to your computer, the software will automatically detect the device and add it to the dashboard. Next time when you open up the app, the added device should be visible on the homepage of Corsair ICUE.

But by any chance, if the ICUE is not detecting your Corsair products, then your fun time has gone.  ICUE should detect the device immediately when you insert it through the USB port. If it doesn’t detect, it doesn’t mean the device is not compatible. You can try to solve the problem by following the below steps.

  1. If the device is an outer one, make sure that the device is connected properly. See that if the USB or other connector is inserted correctly or not. If that is inserted properly, then try to use an alternative USB port.
  2. If using an alternative port doesn’t work, make sure that Corsair ICUE is fully updated or not. Sometimes inserting in a new device can need the software update again. It doesn’t matter if you have recently done so.
  3. Having backdated drivers can also cause this type of problem. So, make sure that you have the updated drivers installed for the device in the issue. To do that, drive to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager > now look for the device from the list under the dropdown sections. After locating, right-click on it and then hit on select Update Driver. Then follow the steps that show.
  4. After updating the driver, restart your computer and see that if the problem still exists or not.
  5. If the issue still exists, then uninstall Corsair iCUE and reinstall it.

If you have done all the steps above and the issue still exists, then you are in big trouble. The last thing you can do is to get in touch with Corsair directly.
