when i connect over USB everything works fine untill i try to talk to it via S3D or pronterface. the board instantly crashes and it even crashes pronterface. i checked the baud rate and reinsstalled the drivers but it still says usb device not recognized when i connect it. has anyone experienced this?
Smoothie can't make pronterface crash, that would likely mean this is a problem with your computer, OS or USB port.
What OS do you have ? What board type do you have ?
Can you please just in case install the latest version of the edge firmware, and the latest configuration example from the website ?
i have win7 and also tried on a win10 computer. i just got my 2nd x5 and ive reflashed the firmware, checked baud rate, got a shiny gold usb cable, ive looked at the troubleshoot section and tried switching power outlets and ferrite. but to no avail. could it be because im using 24v?
i should also add that i can plug it in and the lights stay flashing as long as i dont try to talk to it.
Can you try with nothing but USB plugged into the board please ?
Can I get several high quality pictures of the current board you are having problems with at moc.liamg|ruhtra.flow#moc.liamg|ruhtra.flow ( as well as a short summary of this discussion ) ?
