I have found that a 60 watt powered anker (7 port) will only support two 2pacs, any more go zombie quickly.

My 60w Anker hub (10 port USB3 version) is currently powering four android phone, three 2Pacs (factory default voltages and speed), and one original compac gekko (200Mhz overclock) without issue.

sure, you have three 2pacs on that hub running at 100mhz, try boosting them to 300 mhz. If you do only 2 will work on the hub

True. But I'm not after max speed. I'm after stability so I can ignore the rig and just let it do its thing. To each their own.

That's the output of cgminer. I've got the compiled folder extracted and used zadig for the drivers.

you sure you ran zadig and did the drop down to 2 pac?

doesn't look like the computer even sees it, I think you did something wrong.

What windows are you using? may be it's windows causing a problem?

When you look at the right lower corner do you find something like this:

I'm still guessing it's that thing I said about heat damage.

Were you running it hot, without cooling? And then unplugged it, and then the next time you plugged it back in it's detected by Windows (meaning the USB chip is active) but not cgminer (meaning the chips aren't communicating)?

Then yeah, that's what I'm gonna guess.

If you were running it on stock settings and reasonable temperature and it's randomly not detected, consider increasing the voltage a bit and trying again. Could be a balance issue.

more precisely, hold the device with the usb port up, the screw has a flat edge, turn it clockwise until the flat edge is at 1 0r 2 o clock

Oh hey, every other time in this thread when someone mentions a clock position for the pot, it's referenced to USB down.

Can we have this added to page1, post1? It's where _I_ go when I look for tech info. Smiley

There's a link on the first post that's called "Voltage Adjustment Photo", near the bottom.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1764803.msg17678108#msg17678108

Philipma1957's post under the photo should contain sufficient info for you to use the pot correctly.

@sidehack been getting a bunch of requests to have my Moonlanders work along side your compaqs, and trying to figure out which one of our drivers is causing the issue. Im guessing one of the drivers is blasting the other com port with data that is putting one of the ASICs in an unrecoverable state.
