PC connection to Taranis x9d plus failure

Post by tecmic » Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:36 pm

Hi, becoming very frustrated !!! When I load the taranis in bootloader mode it shows version 2.1.6 and when connected to the pc's usb just shows 'usb connected' on the taranis screen. The pc doesn't register the taranis as connected!
I have loaded opentx ver. 2.2.1 on the SD card via a card reader and can see the files in Windows Explorer, but there's nothing in the Firmware folder.
Opentx Companion cannot write firmware to TX because the usb connection isn't working! I understand the Firmware version has got to match on both the TX and RX (X8R) EU version, but can't because usb connection isn't working !!!!! HELP! please.

Make certain the USB cable you are using supports data transfer, some cables are "charge only".
