Well I guess I must have started with V1.37, but of course I would have just started to feel my way, so never got to look at the expos/dual tab, so that is probably why I can't remember it. I do qremember the first setup I did was for a P51D and I spent a bit of time sorting out a gear door sequencer.

If that doesn't work You may have to go the Zadig Route,
But first try, even if you have already done the following.
Check your drives, when connected by USB, and see if there are any extra drives showing. If nothing shows there then, with the TX switched off open device manager connect the USB and see if anything changes when you connect and disconnect the TX. Then do the same with the TX switched on and then again with the TX switched on using the 3 finger method.

A daft question: I assume you do have OpenTX Companion V2.x. xx loaded on your PC?

ok, I've followed your inputs on two different PCs using Win7 and on one PC using ubuntu 14.04 and on my android 4.2 tab....
on win7 and ubuntu I have companion 2.0.13
on taranis plus I have openTX 2.0.13

results are
- on android tab, only using the 3-finger method, I can see the two storages (EEPROM with EEPROM.BIN and FIRMWARE.BIN) and SD card
- on win7 and ubuntu PCs, NOTHING!!!!!

At the end I decided to set-up the radio directly on the radio without using the companion on which I only simulate the configs....

Have you intalled zadig at all yet?
It was a year or so ago I set my PC up so sorry not much help, scot or someone might help with screen share if you ask really nicely.
I set all my stuff on tx, only use PC to get updates and test out ideas, much easier to know if you are getting it right when you can see the servos moving.

I've installed zadig as well, but no results due to the fact PC does not recognize the the radio

I will setup everything on the radio as well... but still my quad is under construction so cannot test motors yet

OK, zadig is still used to update if you want to update boot loader at same time.
Like I said it was over a year ago I did my Taranis install.

I think its a driver problem though as it works on his android devicemso nothing arong with the tx.


I would plug in tx switched off and uninstall drivers, maybe do same in bootloder.
Restart PC and try again, no zadig this time, just let the PC do its thing.
Sorry if you have already tried this.
Very frustrating I know!

You do not need to mess with Zadig with the Plus it already has the bootloader installed.This has been explained 4700 times before.

It looks like it is a problem with the USB driver on the PCs.
Is your PC showing an unknown device in USB Devices. If it is try doing a driver update on it.

Thanks Guys. I'm well happy with it. The case swap is an absolute doddle. The one that worried me was the screen. But, it pushed out no problem and the sticky that is all around the window adhered straight back onto the new case.

Happy Days!

And that's exactly how I am going to use your help!
