SLI Device BU0710 isn’t recohnized by Windows and the led are fully hilighted when I connect it, why?

the shift light is always in the full lighted position?

Your BU0710 device firmware is old and isn’t compatible with the new USB2 or USB3 + he can’t be connected to an USB2 or USB3 Hub, it must be connected to your computer directly and sometime Windows do not recognize the device , you have to plug/unplug it several times to get your device ready.

Open the “Devices And Printers” manager of Windows to check if the icon of your device  is correct and the device recognized by Windows 7.

SLIMax Manager do not recognize ANYMORE the device?

if the SLIMax Manager didn’t recognize your device anymore and ask you for registration key this is NOT RELATED TO the software but more a firmware issue (sometime the firmware needs to be re-installed) or an hardware issue (cable, hub, usb port, ….).

Check this FAQ first to see if the device is correctly recognized by Windows, re-install the firmware if needed.

We do not provide hardware support, if it’s an hardware issue contact your hardware supplier directly.
