USB Troubleshooting

This page is intended to collect information, tips and trick on how to resolve possible problems with the recognition of your Digispark by the OS.


The digispark should fit smoothly in your usb port. It is possible that a brand new one will have tiny parts sticking out from the cutting proccess. This is easily resolved by sanding these just a bit.
