Works fine on my Windows 10 2004, 64 bit. I had to use USB2 . Will not work on USB3. Also had issue with cable and noise. I found a cable of better quality as far as noise cancellation goes. Took some time to work out bugs. Lots of online searching
Yes I did and they are fine, I could disassemble the machine and check them out to see if they're damaged in any way but they're straight and they keep the right tension. I mean, I could disassemble and reassemble the machine completely just 'cause and see if anything changes.
