I just got a new eqm 35 pro that has what i believe to the a V5 version of synscan because of a lack of a rsr232 port anywhere on the mount or hand controller.
This is my first big boy mount (just upgraded from a star adventurer) and am trying to get my software linked to the hardware of my system. I have downloaded all the drivers from Skywatcher in regards to ascom, the ascom platform, and eqmod related software.
I am running windows 7 on an older laptop and found once I have the software running and the mount running and done a fake alignment with the mount and put it into pc direct mode then connecting to the mount with a usb A to usb B cable my laptop will make the noise for a new device detected but no COM ports become visible so all the eqmod and ascom software cannot see the mount. I have tried to do things in a few different orders and swapped in between various USB ports of the laptop with no luck.
The previous owner of the mount told me he connected with the same style of cable ( from how he described to me) and had no issues so I am not sure what road block I am currently hitting.
I am some what lost on what trouble shooting I can do and what step I can take next to get my system working.
