OK, so I just got into gadgeteering when I got a FEZ spider kit the other day but still haven’t been able to use it. My issue is that I’m getting a USB device descriptor error when booting into bootloader mode to update tinybooter.
My Win 8.1 Pro laptop (w/ USB 3.0) can see the device properly when in normal config setting but not in bootloader. I have VS 2012 Desktop express and using FEZConfig to update. I only connected the DP client to the spider (no other modules). I manually installed both USB drivers from GHI USB folder.
I went out and purchased a powered USB 2.0 hub and tried that and still no luck, also tried different cables, external power source, but still no joy.
