I’ve been having issues getting my Playdate to be recognized by the simulator for some time now, which is now resulting in me being unable to do anything with my development unit. This is on Windows 7 using the most up-to-date SDK and with my Playdate also up to date. When I have the Playdate connected to my PC and I’m in the home menu, the Playdate Simulator’s Device dropdown will all be greyed out. In addition, when I look in my device manager, it says that the Playdate’s drivers have not been installed.
I’m able to do a work-around where I boot into a Linux virtual machine with the SDK installed and then the simulator within Linux recognizes my Playdate and allows me to turn on data disk mode, causing Windows to see my device. I’m then able to get pdx files onto my device while the Playdate is in this data disk connection. But otherwise, Windows never sees the device (at least as far as I’ve been able to tell).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edited: to be more clear
