I have a brand new fresh from the baggie Raspberry pi zero w.
It boots! (unlike the zero I got with it).
Using a DVI monitor with an HDMI to DVI cable. Rainbow screen appears, then initializing noobs, then the noobs menu. YAY!
But no matter what or how I plug into the USB port (I know, not the power port, I know the difference), the system will not initialize or detect the device.
I have 2 different OTG adapters. Both of the adapters work with my phone and tablet.
I have a 4 port usb powered hub. I have a USB keyboard with a built in hub. I have a USB keyboard without a built in hub. I have 2 different usb corded mice, and one wireless usb mouse.
I have tried every conceivable method of connecting these things to my pi zero w, and none of them work with the keyboard, the mouse, or any combination. Using just a keyboard, just a mouse, mouse and keyboard via the keyboard's hub, mouse and keyboard via the usb hub, the most I get is the usb powered hub will provide the power light saying it's got power.
so I've tried a different SD card, freshly imaged with noobs, and there is no way to interact with noobs.
anyone got any ideas on this one?
