Hi! I've bought recently an AudioMoth device for trying to record bats around the site I usually frequent. I've followed all the Configuration Guide, but the device is not recognized by the app, so I cannot get the device flashed with the last firmware. So, the configuration app doesn't work. I've read that it's probably that I'm using a charge cable instead of a connection cable. But my question, how can I buy a connection cable? Is there anyone symbol that identify this type of cable? I've tried 4 different cables, and no one works, so I supposed that they are all charge cables. Thank u for the help!
Great. Apparently a data-only USB cable probably won't have a USB logo showing on the large connector, but there is no real way to be sure without testing them. Alex
Yes, this does sound like the cable as everything else seems to be working fine.
Windows 10 Home. I put the "Mode: Custom", then connect with batteries and MicroSD Card. Two lights start to blink (red and green). Then, I switch to USB/Off, and only the green light continue (with another cable, both turn off). Whatever, the message is: "No Audiomoth found. Make sure the USB Cable is connected and switch in in USB/Off)". I use really "ancient" cables because I only have cables with micro USB 3.0 that are a little bigger than the micro-USB port from AudioMoth, so I think that, if all the stuff go well, probably it's the cable. But all opiniones are welcome, because I'm really interested in starting to work with AutioMoth.
Hi Jairo, Can you confirm what operating system you are using. The you say that the device is not recognised by the app can you describe what you expect to happen and what is actually happening. The most common cause of this is that the cable is a charging cable and has no data connections inside. There is no real standard for marking these, although strictly speaking they shouldn't have a USB logo on them. If the cable works with any other data transmission or device syncing it will work fine with AudioMoth. Alex
