CAN NOT UPDATE FW - FLASH DRIVE DOES NOT SHOW UP

Post by KENNETHLBRYANT » Thu Dec 06, 2018 5:42 pm

Never had a problem before, but now I can't get the FLASH DRIVE to show up on my computer after using the BOOTLOADER button in settings.

I tried putting the unit in REBOOT using the manual method and the FLASH DRIVE does not show up either.

I had that happen to me once too. After fighting with it for a little while I finally realized that the usb cable was still plugged into the pwr supply instead of my computer. :shock:

Make sure you use the supplied USB cable to connect the openSPOT to your computer, or use a USB cable which supports data transfer, not just charging.

Yes, I have the factory supplied cable plugged into my computer.

Any other suggestions?

Is the bootloader running? This is indicated by flashing green STATUS and MODEM LEDs.
If yes, try using other USB cables.
