Xenon doesn't connect to USB

Ok. I’ve plugged in a Xenon to one of my computer’s (Win7 64 bit) USB ports and get absolutely nothing. I would expect to see an extra port on the serial setup when I run Tera Term as I do plugging in one of my Photons. Any ideas anyone? Thanks.

For mesh devices they will not appear as a USB CDC unless Serial.begin is explicitly called in the user firmware.

A change was made so that the Gen3 devices will behave like Gen2 ones in this regard. https://github.com/particle-iot/firmware/pull/1649. I believe the change is in rc.27.


That’s good to hear!

I just updated my Xenon to rc.27 and it shows up in serial without needing Serial.begin()
