Mdloader not detecting my DROP CTRL
more_vert
I already have the DROP ALT so I know exactly how to flash LED configurations to the board, but when I hold FN + B and my keyboard restarts, Mdloader does not detect my keyboard and even attempt to flash the bin file. Anyone know why this is happening?

I am not sure if the issue is really gone with the modified mdloader.exe. I also tried the github updated version and i am still having the same problem with two brand new drop Alt keyboards on two different machines running windows 10 :-( mdloader is looking for the COM port that the keyboard is connected to but Windows10 does not list the Drop Alt keyboard under the COM ports but only under the Human Interface/Keyboards section in the device manager. I am guessing at this point that the mdloader is not compatible with Windows10 which is shame especially considering the price of this thing. At this point i am not sure what to do to get it to work other than trying to do it on my linux machine instead as Windows10 is no go.

Were you able to resolve this with the new release? https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader/releases/tag/1.0.4

I made the code change described in the comments of this issue, recompiled, and it works now (Windows). https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader/issues/24

I just got my CTRL and I cant update the firmware either. I can with another CTRL with the same steps that I have so thats odd.

It is in the sense that at least I know im not the only one having this issue. I guess ill have to wait for an updated mdloader exe or try to recompile it myself. thanks for the help!
