To connect the GF-SECM to your computer, use the 2-meter USB cable provided in the package, following these steps:
- Plug the USB cable “B” connector end (square) into the connector on the back of the GF-SECM enclosure.
- Plug the USB cable “A” connector end (rectangular) to a USB port on your computer or hub.
The first time the GF-SECM is connected to the USB port on a computer running Microsoft Windows, a message “New Hardware Found” or “Your New Device is Now Ready” should appear briefly on your screen. This indicates that Windows has detected the GF-SECM , and has loaded all required drivers. From this point on, if you disconnect the GF-SECM and then re-connect it, the drivers will automatically load and no message will appear on the screen. This also occurs each time you re-start your computer while the GF-SECM is connected. The automatic loading of drivers, with no notification message, is a normal operating feature of the Windows Plug and Play system.
NOTE: If you own other GoFlight hardware and have already installed the most current version of software on your system, you do not need to install the software again. Simply skip the software installation steps in the instructions below.
