Can't connect Oculus Link

I'm trying to connect my Quest to my computer, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I bought the Anker cable before it sold out, and connected it to my computer. However, the Rift app said to try a different USB port, and if that didn't work, the cord was incompatible. Different USB ports gave the same response. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Is the Anker cable you have definitely USB 3.0?

    The reason I ask is that in the UK the cable on Amazon that the Oculus website links to is unavailable. An ‘new model’ shows up, but when you check the spec of this cable it’s only usb 2.0. This is the one I’m talking about l...

    Try flipping the plug over and reinserting to the port. Not sure why, as usb-c's supposed to be universal in the way it's inserted, but for some reason, some cables only give a data connection if the plug is inserted with a certain orientation. Flip it upside down and see if that helps.

    Ah. That's why. I just assumed it was USB 3.0. Thanks!
