I got huge problems connecting my SM2.0 to my Mac by cable. I’m using a usb c to mini usb but as I’m new to Mac I have near zero experience and don’t know what to do.
I’ve tried to install the driver from SM download site but with no luck.
I want to connect with cable as I find the Wi-Fi connection unreliable from time to time.
Hi, do you have to use Mac?
I’m not doing a Mac so this may not apply, but, on my usb c extender cable I had to pare back the connector plastic 1-2 mm to get a good connection. For some reason, the SM connection isn’t ‘standard’ and the connection sits a little proud of a good connection. Got this solution from other discussions on this forum. I don’t know if that only affected earlier models or all models. For what it’s worth.
His usb c is on the Mac side…
Thanks for your replies.
Well regarding if I need to use Mac. I don’t, but it is the computer I have. Otherwise I could use my work pc, but I rather don’t.
I am not quite sure what you mean mark. Did you pare back on the micro usb side of the cable?
The usb-c, on my extension cable, did not go in far enough for a good connection. Taking 1-2 mm off the plastic that holds the actual metal connector so it can go in further helped.
