Hi all,

I am using a USB sound card(snd-usb-audio), and it fails while doing
the audio recording "arecord: pcm_read:2032: read error: Input/output

What could be the problem? and is there a workaround for this?

$ arecord -l
**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 1: BT_AG [BT_002], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

$ arecord --device hw:1,0 --channels 1 --format S16_LE --rate 32000_Hz x.wav
Recording WAVE 'x.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 32000 Hz, Mono
arecord: pcm_read:2032: read error: Input/output error
