I am now trying to update the firmware of FEZ Hydra on another computer.
After reading many docs, I found that each main board has 2 different driver; one for normal use, and another for loader mode(cannot remember from where I saw this info).
Now, after plugging/unplugging my Hydra thousands times on the 2nd PC, it is now pops up dialog telling me to Update Driver Software and the previous GHI General XXX driver has done in the Device Manager.
So I guess this time it recognizes the load mode and now is trying to install the relative driver.
So could someone point me out the download link of this load mode driver please?
Personally, getting one weird device connection like this suggests to uninstall the GHI drivers (use the remove files option) and reinstall from scratch. Methodically disconnect all cables from your device, check the pins look correct, check the socket type is correct and plug your SP module back in. Then connect the USB cable carefully to SP, and plug the device into the PC. Make sure you hear the device connected noise from the pc, and then the driver should start correctly. If that fails, repeat this on all available USB ports, as often some ports may have dodgy power connections.
Can you tell us about your history with this hydra and your pc’s? Have you used them together in the past, or is this a first time setup for you? Have you ever had the GHI SDK installed before?
I can’t be sure, I don’t think I have a spare DP module though I’ve emailed you direct and still happy to send you a Hydra to test and get you started and if I do have a spare DP I’ll happily send it (or perhaps I can wire up something - let me think on that )
Thank you very much for your reply and warm-heart help.
The DP module is only need for updating firmware (because according to what it is said on this website, when updating firmware a strong power supply is needed.)
But since you will send me the updated hardware, then I do not need DP module to do my test.
So please send me your update-to-date Hydra (Version 4.2, I guess) and I highly appreciate your help!!!Really!
