"failed Getting SW version"
« on: 2021-04-27, 20:44:40 »
Hello Anyone,

Recently I've had several bewildering issues with my RR Control unit.

I've been owner RC1258's since 2009 and never had these issues. Current RR 1258 purchased in 2016 so I'm stumped.

Name   Value
Company   Microbit
Product   1258
PID   4
Version   7
HW   8
Software   2.91
Bootloader   1.13
Compiler   4.6.2
Build   Jun 16 2016 07:13:13

First issue: Can't read Control unit with MB 2.0 v1.31 with two different USB cables. Just upgraded MB 2.0 to v2.06 same result.

Failed getting SW version: Failed opening the device:
Device connected!
Failed getting SW version: Failed opening the device:
Failed opening the device:

The other strange issues are related to my profiles. I have access to two other RR radio's which have been working flawless for several years now.

Will address then in later posts.

Thanks Bruce Marron W4HI

Have you tried to connect to another RRC with the same PC and USB cable ? if it works the USB interface is probably damaged even if I have never seen a broken USB interface as far as I remember. Bad cables are more common
