USB Expansion Cards not recognizing device

Hi, I have a Framework 13, AMD on Windows 11 Pro and having issues with the laptop recognizing my plug in USB device. I have tried plugging it into the USB C expansion card and as well as the USB A expansion card and swap the cards to different ports and still does not recognize my device. If I use a USB hub between the port and device, then it will be recognized. The USB device is a calibrated microphone from MiniDSP - UMIK-2 (USB C).
