This information pertains to the original LabQuest.

If you have LabQuest 2 or LabQuest 3, see this article.

If a LabQuest is not recognized by a computer that can see a different LabQuest, or if the unit fails to recognize a USB thumb drive, the circuit board in the LabQuest that controls both USB ports may be broken.

In this case, please contact Vernier technical support for a repair authorization.
