I don’t know if it was just me, or if this is generally true, but thought I’d post in case anyone else has an issue:
I tried to update the firmware on my new Domino last night, and ran into an error - Win 7 (Ultimate N 64-bit) choked when I tried to connect with the bootloader button depressed. I didn’t think to capture the actual error message, but it was a “toast”-style message that the USB device I connected had malfunctioned, and was being disabled in order to save the universe from destruction, or something to that effect.
Since [italic]a)[/italic] I’m lazy, and [italic]b)[/italic] all my equipment is mounted (well, sits on) a wire rack a good 6 feet from my desk chair, and [italic]c)[/italic] I wanted to watch the LED go blink-blink-blinkety, I had plugged the Domino into the USB hub that’s on my desk next to my monitor.
I then ran the driver install from the downloads page to no avail.
It (slowly) dawned on me that I should try plugging it directly into my PC, and Voila!, it worked like a charm.
What threw me was the fact that connecting the Domino through the hub for debugging works just fine. I’m sure there’s some arcane electronic reason for this that is painfully obvious to all you hardware guys, but be gentle - I’m a software guy - or at least, I was until last night!
