Pololu AVR Programmer 2.1 not being detected by windows.

Hey guys I just recently has this arrive for me today in the mail: Pololu USB AVR Programmer v2.1

I downloaded the drivers and stuff but whenever I connect it to my pc, it doesn't even pop up that a usb device is connected. Literally nothing happens, nothing is detecting it at all. Do you guys have any suggestions on what to do?

Do you have to have a specific cord for it? or can any micro usb fit into it?

Actually I tried using a different cord and it worked. The cords I was using were for charging things, I guess this one was different.

'Charging' cords may not contain the USB signals, just the power.

Saves on wire in manufacture. :roll_eyes:
