usb port problems related to Ti-Lp and Ti-connect
« on: November 03, 2013, 03:33:57 pm »

I have already done multiple attempts to get ti-lp to work on this windows 8 laptop, but every time i try to use it, my usb ports just stop working. It never finds the calculator, and it also can't detect other usb devices, like flash drives, regardless of the usb port they were inserted in (Not only the port the calc was in). It stays like this untill the computer is restarted.

After a while, I got tired of this problem and installed Ti-connect, but Ti-Connect seems to have the exact same problem. The usb ports also stop working from the moment Ti-Connect is launched.

This made me think that this problem could be related to windows 8, and I heared from a friend that Ti-Lp works better on Ubuntu, so I used a virtual machine (VM Player) with ubuntu. While the virtual machine was running, I tested it with a flash drive, and it was detected fine in ubuntu(but called "128MB file system" instaed of "MP3 flash drive" like in windows), witouth windows giving me a pop-up about a flash drive being inserted. I think that this means that the virtual machine has full control over the usb ports. Then I downloaded tilp from the ubuntu store, connected a calculator and ran it. And again, it didn't find a calculator, and just like in windows, all usb ports stopped working, and not only in ubunto, when I swhitched back to windows, the problem remained.
This made me think that the problem might be hardware-related.

Does anyone know the cause of this idea, a fix for it, or something else that I can try to get it to work?
