Hi cbius6,

Please could you locate the trace.xml file after the device is not detected (close the software first)?

Please navigate to:

Code: Select all

~/.local/share/Pico\ Technology/
Then, in a folder with a long alphanumeric name beginning with '2' you can find the trace.xml file.

Have you tested the device on another PC (including one running a Windows operating system) and with another USB cable?

Regards,
