I followed all the intructions for using mdloader and the online QMK key mapping and lighting uptions, and then I compiled and loaded the layout to my keyboard and it worked... 1 or 2 times.
Then I kept playing with the different lighting options and then when I went to load my latest color layout, on the 3rd try, my mdloader suddenly can't recognize my device!
I am lost as to what the issue could be. I followed the exact steps presented and even got the thing to work a couple times, and then it suddenly stopped working. I am very new to all of this so I don't even know how to troubleshoot the problem. Any help would be much appreciated.
Why won’t my Drop CTRL High Profile Keyboard not power up on a USB hub?
Hi, I have been using the Drop CTRL keyboard for a month to two now, and I love it. Originally it was plugged straight into my laptop with the included USBC to USBA cable. Then I tried to get fancy and I purchased a nice, custom coiled USB with a GX16 connector. That was plugged into my laptop as well. After a couple days the keyboard no longer was getting power. I thought it might be the cable but with every other device, the cable worked fine. I put the original cable one and it worked again. Then I tried rearranging my desk a bit and connected my keyboard to a USB hub that was connected to my docking station. Worked for a few days, then stopped. If I plug the keyboard directly into my laptop with the included cable, no problem. Any other cable or hub and it’s a no go. Any ideas why this is happening and what I can do?
New Drop CTRL freezes or restarts itself several times a day.
I've got an RMA label but before I ship it back I wanted to check to see if there was a known issue and fix for this sort of thing? When it freezes, input stops and if the leds are on an animated setting it freezes too. Unplug and replug recovers it. Sometimes the keyboard seems to reset itself. Most mornings it'll be back on the default lighting.
I guess Drop doesn't have tech support. They just created an RMA.
