    I am sure I am doing something stupid but I can't get the computer to recognize my NAZA quad in the DJI Naza assistant software. Its as if the quad isn't there... I have tried all sorts of different things (installing/uninstalling the driver/software with/without the NAZA plugged in).

    Nothing seems to work!

    I"m running Window Vista home premium version (32 Bit)
    Driver is the 32 bit version and seemed to install OK (although I had to run the EXE file to get it to run).
    The Assistant software seems to be working but the blue light doesn't flash and no one is home. I have registered and logged in to updates..
    The Naza is brand new and LED's light up when I plug in the battery
    Quad is a standard Gaui 500X with the standard 500x motors, escs and frame.

    Maybe someone else has had the same issue? Its really bugging me now as I have spent about 3 hours unsuccessfully trying to get the computer to recognize the MC so I can set it up and fly it!

    Really appreciate any help or ideas.

    plug the usb into the led/bec, plug in a battery to the quad, does the computer make that sound like a driver is installed, it's like a 2 note beep and by your clock should say dirver loaded or driver unsucessful

    You might try a different usb port on the back of the pc if theres one available

    your software will say motor output off at the bottom if it is connected. I had a bad USB/LED module, drove me up the wall. I am now on unit number 3! I mentioned this before but take a file and take off the burrs on the USB plug end. Those things were enough to rip off the female port from the inside of the USB module.

    Hooray! Got it connected and flying. Turned out to be a dud USB lead (the DJI one that comes with the NAZA). Thanks Michael for helping set it up and getting it sorted!

    Cheers

    Dud USB lead

    Can you tell me what you did for a replacement for the dud USB lead?? - I seem to have maybe the same problem.

    It was one from my girlfriends hard disk. I think its just a mini or micro USB. IF you take your DJI one into a electronics store then they should be able to match it - its really common.

    I feel like a dummy b/c I can't even find a USB port, micro or otherwise, on my Naza M controller.
