Try "View by connection" and check if that device is connected to usb controller

I can't find any MKR device also in view by connection... It seems like w10 can't detect I am connecting vidor to it.


Also, Vidor consumes quite a bit and not all USB ports, especially if 2.0 will be able to sustain the required current especially when complex bitstreams are loaded
I checked also this thing and my pc has usb 3.0 ("ss" symbol near it).

Edit:
I tryed to install arduino 1.8.8 with samd beta on another PC, but the result is the same. One thing i notice is that w10 doesn't make sound when i plug in the board, is this linked to the fact that device manager won't show anything about the vidor and if so, would it be a w10 problem or a Vidor driver problem?

Connecting sound will come when win10 detects device. For hi current consumption I recomment these nimi usb cables that was done for supporting hi current charging.

BTW are you using laptop?
I think laptops monitor used current and may not allow for hi current device if usb device haven't asked for it.

That made my day! Thanks so much Limba, I tryed with 4 different cable, three of them with no luck, the last one (with the difference that was shielded) was succesful in connecting the device! Now I have updated the bootloader and I can start playing with it.

I have also noticed that sometime usb cables mini connector will worn out when using too much so have many spare cables. Some times I use electronic component vendor for ordering usb cables. These are usually same that are delivered with products and cheaper.
