    Nope, no changes. No sound or message when I plug the Switch in.

    Just tried my parents' laptop as an alternative. No response in Device Manager to the Switch being plugged in on either of the laptop's two ports, and Zadig apparently shows two WebCam options? Must stand for the two USB ports, I'm guessing.

    I have a feeling this could be a USB-C issue. Researching the topic right now, but apparently the net is full of complaints about how it's inefficient and sometimes still doesn't function? Perhaps none of my devices support it, or the cable is the wrong one. idk.

    Based on your experiences, I imagine it's a problem with the cord. Try a different one.

    In the meantime, you can install over FTP using DZ Tinfoil, instead of USB.

    not sure if you've done it but rebooting your PC after reinstalling zadig and/or libusbk helped me before.

    Is Zadig actually meant to be installed? The one I downloaded just starts an application that's apparently not anywhere on my PC unless I open it again. I've rebooted my PC a fair number of times since I started trying to get things working; it hasn't helped.

    Zadig is a tool to install the libusbk Driver, like TegraRcm.

    Here's a Tutorial how to install the Driver:

    Hopefully I can accomplish this with a different cord...

    Yeah that's also Possible, the Switch is VERY Picky about Cables... (Pro Controller and Samsung Cables work)
