    Hi

    My problem cant connect Iosd mini to windows 10 pc!

    My setup

    Phantom 2 v2
    H3-3D Gimbal
    GoPro hero 3
    Iosd Mini

    Now the FPV works video data on screen etc but its slightly off screen so thought id connect to pc and sort

    My mistake connected it pc powered up with the Iosd assistant installed and nothing didnt know about the driver needing to be installed so went and tried to install that and nothing get a message say no device to be updated on the install of the driver?

    windows sees the usb connection and installs it as a generic usb device manually trying to install the DJI driver via control panel dont work

    any help?

    Hi patters1978

    I dont believe it is possible to view video directly through the USB port of a windows PC, you will need a "Video Grabber", search ebay you will find loads for sale,
    you can't even view video if you connect to the laptop or PC's HDMI socket, because that is one direction ie Video out only

    Sorry to disappoint....
    PS search the forum there are other posts about this..

    First of all there hasn't been an update for mini iOSD since it came out in Dec 31, 2013. There are screen adjustments that can be made to either thr left or right sides but that's all You do need to download version 4.0 software on the DJI phantom 2 download page.

    Hi

    Again sorry but I think I haven't been clear..

    I have installed iOSD assistant the latest one from that page and the driver etc etc

    I stated I only need to connect it to make adjustments to the data on screen or move both sides in.

    I have been googling this for the best part of 5 hrs without luck?

    Cheers

    There is a mini USB connector on the iOSD and the drive is only necessary for the P2 not the iOSD. Also as I stated there is no update for that unit.

    Sorry but are you reading my posts?

    I don't need to update just to adjust screen! But the software does not connect to the iOSD mini? And yes of course I have connected just the mini to the PC and powered on the p2 etc

    Have you downloaded the software for the mini iOSD? The iOSD assistant software is v4.0 and the manual is v1.06. Down at the bottom of the page.
