Zen Dac & Sony nw-a105


Hi folks , had A105 for couple of weeks now and had an Ifi Zen Dac delivered to go with it . Bought a cable matters USB C to USB B cable to connect them both however I am getting no operating lights on the front of the zen and no audio from the Walkman . When I connect the two I get a USB
notification which says ‘USB CONTROLLED BY CONNECTED DEVICE ‘ iF I click on the only other option which is ‘THIS DEVICE’ it says ‘can not switch ‘ . I have plugged the zen Dac into my Windows 10 laptop and it functions perfectly . Sony is android based .
