I wanted to add one more thing to try - especially for those who are getting a connection but then an error - try putting a bit of pressure on the Digispark after you plug it in and/or adding a few layers of tape to the bottom of the USB plug part of it - sometimes these issues seem to be due to the Digispark not making snug enough contact with the USB pins when plugged in.

have you tried the items in the troubleshooting sections, especially different ports, hub, extension cable - and are you hearing the device connect disconnect sound?[/size]

@DigiStump, Yes and I've tried an unpowered hub and I'm getting the unplug noise from Windows :(

The other option is find an extension that has proper spring type pins.

It solved my issues.

Are you getting any dialogs from the system tray - like "Device has malfunctioned"?


Have you installed the driver?


Do you have access to a second machine to test it with?


Thanks for your patience - it could be a bad one, but we'll try to eliminate a few more things first.

@Digistump I get USB Device Not Recognized. I tried uninstalling the drivers then reinstalling. No dice, and I know the little guy is getting power because it runs the default blink program. I'll try on another device, keep in mind I am unable to get any "USB device" noises from my USB 3.0 port, only when I plug into my unpowered USB hub... aaaand weird. I tried another USB 3.0 port on my computer and the drivers loaded. It's just on a side of my computer I never use the ports on. Ok so I tested it and I am now able to successfully upload code :) Thanks for the help!


tl;dr try ALL of your ports

This may have been answered already.  I'm running Win7 and was having similar issues (USB device not recognized).  It would not work when connecting directly to the 2 front USB ports on my PC (but I know these work as I use memory keys in them all the time).  I have a cheapo 4 port hub connected to the USB port on the back and this worked.   Issue could be either something whacky with my 2 front ports, or (as others have suggested) making sure that a 4 pins get a solid connection when inserted. 


Something I am going to try when I get around to it, is to solder a thin layer of solder to each of the 4 pads to build up some height to ensure positive contact.  This is reversible provided you have some solder wick.  I'll post back to see if that helps.

I need to explain my earlier post when I said

The extension cord as well as the normal spring parts on the metal shroud, had the 4 USB connection pins sprung.
Thereby ensuring that not matter how thick the device being inserted, positive contact was made to all 4 contacts.

The cheaper extensions don't have this.
