Hi and welcome to the forums.
Everything you can try is listed in this sticky post here:


simple one, but I was using a micro USB from a charger, so the cable worked fine but didn’t allow the computer to see what the device was.

Since the stick comes with no micro USB a good quick step is to make sure the cable you are using is good for data, not just power :slight_smile:
