Windows 8.1 USB Driver Problem?

by MyRCode » Thu May 07, 2015 3:58 am

I'm having trouble connecting my Gemini to the Tau Labs GCS software. I bought the Gemini new and was able to initially connect and downloaded the latest GCS software (20150131-4082e9d8) and updated the firmware. I went back today to set the level on the Gemini because I had a slight drift and now the GCS software can't detect the Colibri. I've forced windows 8 to allow unsigned drivers and updated the OpenGL in the BIN folder of the GCS (https://github.com/TauLabs/TauLabs/w...apable-systems) but I am still getting a yellow exclamation point next to the FC Colibri in the Device Manager.

I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit. I've tried this on both USB 3.0 and UBS 2.0 ports. Can anyone help?

Have you clicked on Colibri fc device and removed it, then disconnect and reconnect?

Yup...Just tried that and still the same thing. Also tried installing the GCS on an old Windows XP netbook and still couldn't get it to connect.

So made a little more progress...

The GCS is seeing the FC, but for some reason isn't loading all the info. It is showing up in the bottom right corner of the GCS. If I go to the firmware page and hit rescue, the green bar times out with an error. If I unplug and plug back in the USB cable while the green bar is up, it'll detect the FC. I can flash firmware at this point, but none of the other tabs in the GCS work. Has this happened to anyone else before?

Just to make sure, you are clicking on Boot after flashing the firmware right? Several have mentioned trouble connecting with win8.1. Don't have that OS myself and various fc have worked with XP, Win7 and 10. I am not sure if allowing unsigned drivers comes into play on win8.1

I was hitting Boot after flashing the firmware, but after I do that, it doesn't show up in the GCS any more. I have to hit rescue again and then unplug / replug the USB cable while the green bar is up. It then detects the board, but still can't access any other options in the software.

You are supposed to hit rescue with the board unplugged and unpowered and insert the USB plug when requested and still with the board unpowered.

Ah..I'll try that when I get home and see if it'll let me access the other tabs.

So still couldn't access the tabs on Windows 8.1 using rescue.

I did have an old Macbook Pro and the GCS works perfectly on there. I guess I'll stick to using the Macbook until a new update comes out.

I stumbled into mostly the same problem with TauLabs/dRonin, had to remove the driver and be sure to reboot before plugging in again. Tried without rebooting and that did not work.
