As per your reference (forum.digilentinc.com/topic/19135-analog-discovery-2-stopped-working/#comment-51470 ) I used window's device manager to detect the AD2. Using a short cable and trying different USB ports windows did not detect the AD2.
" - Nothing shows up:
- Connect the device directly to the computer's USB plug without using external hub.
- Try to use different USB cable and computer plug.
The device or its plug might be damaged."
Short of sending my AD2 to the recycler is there anything I can do to bring it back to life?
