Micro Maestro doesn't show up in Control Center

I’m trying to get my Micro Maestro 6-channel servo controller to connect to a Windows XP laptop (someone gave it to me to make a few Halloween props with servos).

When I plugged in the Maestro, I installed the driver for it. The computer recognizes the device and the lights blink on the board but it isn’t recognized in Pololu Maestro Control Center.

In Device Manager under “Ports (COM & LPT)” it only shows the TTL port and not the Commander port.

Does anybody know how to fix this issue?


I have fixed the issue. It was because the drivers for command port and the other one weren’t installed. I just double clicked the pololu items under “Other Devices” and clicked the "Reinstall Driver " button for both of them. Now it works.

Hello, Nathan.

I am glad you were able to figure it out. Thanks for letting us know.

By the way, we would be very interested in hearing more about these Halloween props you are building. Feel free to share them in the “Share Your Projects” section of our forum.
