Selecting Audio Driver

Gday. I'm an absolute noob to DAW so bare with me. I'm trying to set up the Audio driver using my focusrite 18i20 new gen. When I select driver type being ASIO it still has an exclamation mark and then when i select Focusrite USB 2.0 Audio Driver it says " failed to open audio device ". It will only let me select Focusrite USB ASIO and the exclamation marks remain. Any ideas?

    Should work if installed correctly and with the right compatible drivers.
    Make sure you have the correct version installed. When in doubt, try re-installing the drivers. Sometimes things can go wrong during installation.

    What the dude above me says, but it's also really really important to restart/ start up ableton AFTER you plugged in your audio device.
