[Resolved] APM 2 not detected by windows ?

Hi everybody,

I've ordered an APM2 at the begining of dexember an tody is D day ! I've just received my board but it's starting by a big deception (I hope i'm wrong).

I've just connected the board to my pc USB an NOTHING happened ...

Windows, doesn't detect any device ! I tried to change USB port but nothing.

Do I need to power the board with anything else that USB port ? Does it need me power to be detected ?

The board are supposed to be tested so I can imagine that i's working ...

Please help.

  • Hi Mike, thanks for helping me.

    There is no light on the board. I can't install driver for the moment because the board is not visible in the Device manager.

    I already tried another USB port but not the cable. I don't have another one.

    Did you load the FTDI drivers?

    Are there any lights on the APM2 when you plug in the USB?

    If not, do you have another USB port or computer you can try?
