My Orange USB won’t work on my Computer. Running Windows 7…Any Ideas

Hi Paul,

Is this an USB A-to-A cable or a USB-to-Serial Cable?
Based on the cable you will need a different driver from this page: https://vexforum.com/wiki/index.php/Software_Downloads

I believe its a USB A-to-A cable …I tried to put an attachment on. Paul

Paul,

It should look like the attached picture (except orange).
This cable is not supposed to be detected by the PC, the Cortex is the one detected by the PC.

If you have all the appropriate drivers in place and you connect your Cortex to a PC, it will be listed under the “Ports” section on the Windows Device Manager.
