    Are you positive the cable you’re trying to use us USB?
    I'm assuming you’ve downloaded and installed the Rift software to your computer?

    like i said i did everything
    yes the software is fully upgraded
    and im using a usb to usbc ankor cable thats supposed to be link compatible
    id get the official link cable but refuse to spend another $70 on this if i have no proof it will work
    as it is when i plug it in my pc doesn't see the device at all

    I also have the official cable, wish I didn’t tbh lol (won’t bore you with the details) You can see my comments about it here https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/85234/link-cable#latest

    The reason I ask what cables you’re using is that I’ve come across a lot of people buying USB 2 thinking they are USB 3. 

    For example I have an Anker Powerline+ 1.8m that is USB 3 and works with Link. Anker also make a Powerline+ 2m that’s USB 2 and therefore won’t work. 

    EDIT: Just realised my error in my first post, was meant to say Are you positive the cable you’re trying to use is USB 3’
