I haven't received a response to my post either and I know this won't help you much but I notice you are having a similar problem connecting like I am. After powering on and allowing it to boot I plug in the USB cable abd get this error returned: "Can't read the firmware on the VESC. Make sure you have it plugged into the correct port and that the power is on". I only get this error on one side of the VESC (I have the VESC 6 Dual), the other side is fine.

Does your USB issue happen on both VESC sides or just one (assuming you have a Dual)?

My error happens on both (I too have a dual Vesc - Flipsky 6.6)  My error comes from Windows and says something like “Windows is unable to recognize the usb device”
