Q5 2M LPDA USB Cable not recognized

Options

My Flex 6700 / SmartSDR no longer recognizes the USB cable for my Q5 2MLPDA. I am on 3.5.9. Has anyone seen this? I actually have two of the FQ5 USB cables and neither one is recognized.

    Do you have any other devices plugged into the USB port? There isn't much power there, so you might need a powered hub.

    I have tried it plugged directly into the rear of the 6700 as well as through a powered hub. No apparent difference.

    Have you tried resetting the radio?

    Are you using the cable you received from Q5?
