I have just purchased the Micro Maestro 6.
I have been trying for a number of hours to set up the drivers and software and have followed all the directions -written and on video but to no avail.
When i plug in usb to laptop one led flashes once (yellow) then never flashes again.
In the Program Files\Pololu\ Maestro folder i have the following files and folders :-
In drivers I have
When I checked the devices I can not find any reference to pololu or maestro.
I have installed and removed 4 times now so I have come here to ask assistance.
I am sorry you are having problems with your Maestro. Does the computer give any signs that it is recognizing Maestro? Does an unknown device appear in the device manager? Is Windows making the USB device connected sound? Could you try using a different USB cable? Could you also try different USB ports and a different computer if possible?
Thanks for the prompt response.
I have tried three two that I had and I purchased a new one today still no good.
I have disconnected all usb devices and connected only the one for the Maestro - still no recognition
I am borrowing a laptop tomorrow - I will let you know the outcome
Let us know how that goes. It was also not clear if you tried plugging the Maestro into several different USB ports on your computer, if you haven’t yet, you could try that as well. If neither of those work, could you post pictures of the inside of the USB port on the Maestro so I can check for any signs of damage to it?
Now resolved with a new lead- problems with data lead.
Thanks for the pointers all working well.
Thanks for letting us know. I am glad you got it working.
