SOLVED! Camera USB not connecting. CV1 External Camera driver missing.

I purchased and installed the Oculus recommended USB 3.0 card off of Amazon (and gave it power over a SATA power connector straight from the PSU). On config the Rift USB connects fine, but then the Camera USB has a spinning wheel next to it and never goes green. In Device Manager the CV1 External Camera is flagged yellow/shows that the driver is not installed.

Anybody have any ideas on what to do here (apart from uninstall and reinstall Oculus Home which I will do right now). 

Thanks, 
FDP!

    Small update: When I uninstall the CV1 External Camera from Device Manager and then plug back in I get a "Device driver software was not successfully installed" error. Also, using Win7 64.

    Which driver are you using?

    Try using the latest FrescoLogic drivers. "USB 3.0 Host Driver (FL1000, FL1009, FL1100) v3.6.8.0". Download here, link on the right column:

    I'd like to mark this as solved!

    I'm an idiot and left my DK2 sensor plugged into a USB port  (only unplugged the DK2 itself). I got a "your sensor is plugged into a USB 2.0 port" error when I reached the connection status page and it clicked.

    Oculus, if your reading this, I am hopefully not the only moron who will make this mistake. Throw up a warning for us DK2 users to let us know if we left something plugged in!

    Thanks @danielbodart , your suggestion solves my problem.
  • @danielbodart Close but no cigar for me. I am getting the message "Windows found the driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. Rift Sensor. Access is denied"  
    Trying with oculus support but they are taking ages to respond...

    Selecting Update in the device manager and pointing to C:\Program Files\Oculus VR Runtime Drivers\Drivers did the trick.

    Hey guys, thanks for the tip. For absolutely non reason at all, this occured just a few minutes ago and I couldn't for the life of me find out what happened... Anyone knows what is the reason fo this sudden driver change ?

    @CLParker Thank you very much! I can now use my Rift again, after the Aniversary Update for Windows!

    Phew. This just happened to me as well. I thought my sensor was broke. For me, once I pointed to the folder, the driver appeared to be ok (originally had an error symbol) but the white light on the sensor was still not on. Then it took a few times trying to run a firmware update which popped up in the Oculus app. So if you are having trouble like this, unplug a few times and try again. It finally worked for me. There was a recent Windows update for me as well. Thanks all!

    I my case I went to C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-drivers and ran oculus-driver, manually. And then the sensors were installed correctly.

    Just saved me from my panic, I had to do this as well. Oculus couldn't see the sensors and Windows couldn't find a driver

    This is a normal Notification that appears often after SLEEP or even a fresh BOOT. Closing Home does not fix it as it needs the OculusServer restarted. Do this by using the RESTART option in Menu Settings OR you could use the same command within Oculus Debug Tool. What is the point in having Oculus run after exiting or at PC BOOT???
