I just wanted to share my experience with my Faderport and possibly help someone out.
So, long story short, I picked up a faderport classic 2nd hand and it didn't include a power adapter.
Unfortunately I had no real way to know if the motorized fader worked (aside from the seller saying "it works great!" ) but i took a chance anyway!
When I finally acquired a power adapter the faderport's motorized fader worked.
Then, out of the blue one day it stopped working.
So I tried updating the firmware ( I had to use another (older) computer to get it to update ~ so when I finally found a computer with a USB 2.0 connection that worked for the updating process)- I updated it to the latest version v1.45. -
(For those of you trying to update your faderport: You'll know the updating process has *finally* started when the faderport's button lights on the bottom (eg:rewind, fast fwd,stop,play,record) all start moving in a sequence from left to right)
Still no motorized fader.
I tried switching ports (USB 2.0, 3.0 ~ I went through all of the ones on my computer) ~ still no luck..
Finally I stumbled across a video where a user had used a USB 2.0 hub and had success, so remembering that I had one somewhere I dug around and eventually found my old logitech USB 2.0 hub.
From there I plugged it in and *Boom* its now working!

This was on a 2018 Windows 10 Lenovo PC.
I hope this helps somebody.
