Had this with a 3 usb last year. Mine was what they called ‘bricked’,happens when you have a firmware issue. Got mine sorted by Gary in mototuning,been grand ever since. Not sure what the work around for the V though,so worth doing a google on it first

Re: Power commander V issue

My PCV has been working fine for years, and the laptop never shows a USB device connected. You don't have to "eject" it like you do a drive.

Connect up and run Power Commander software, it should communicate with the PCV then ok

Always a good idea to update the firmware too (download the file from Dynojet website), under Power Commander Tools select Update Firmware and off you go
I did have a funny lean condition several years ago, an update to the firmware sorted it.

Re: Power commander V issue

I had a similar issue when I tried using it with my own USB cable instead of one that came with the power commander
