DJI NAZA-M & Windows 10

by jahnkeanater | February 4, 2016 | (5) Posted in How To

Just bought a seacond hand DJI NAZA-M today and got it home to tinker around with the settings. I downloaded all the apropriate programs and drivers and created an account with dji to use the software, Pluged in my DJI NAZA M only to have windows install the wrong driver and have DJI's software not detect the device.

I spent hours surfing the web before I found the solution. DJI does not have signed drivers and windows 10 refuises to install them. So here is how to get your DJI to play nice with Windows 10.

"You may need to refresh this page several times for this article to display properly."

 

First off you need to enable installation of unsigned drivers.

 

Hold down the SHIFT key while you click Restart.

Once your computer has rebooted you will be able to choose the Troubleshoot option.

Then head into Advanced options.

Then Startup Settings.

“Disable driver signature enforcement”. To choose the setting, You will need to press the F7 key.

Once your computer Starts back up you have to manually install the driver. Plug your dji device into the computer "supply power from a battery" and open device manager.

You should see your device listed under ports as "USB Serial Device (COM##)".

Now right click that device and click properties and under the Drivers Tab Click Update Driver.

Then Click

Then

Then Click the "Have Disk..." Button.

Then Browse to this directory

C:\Program Files (x86)\DJI Product\DJI driver2.02\source64

And Select The Dji Driver "dji_vcom_driver11.inf" and hit Open then OK

Hit Next and allow windows to install the driver software anyway.

Your Device Should now look like this in device manager and the DJI software should be able to connect.

 

Finally enjoy your quadcopter the way it is supposed to work.

This worked for me after hours of digging. One thing, I had to reboot after manually installing the driver for it to connect. Thank you!!!

Thank you thank you thank you. I searched for a while and even bought a second unit since DJI told me mine might just be malfunctioning. This worked and now it talks to the software. Thanks again.

Why does DJI not know about this? I would assume this is a problem with all windows 10 machines.

@ jahnkeanater - Thank you so much for posting this how-to-help on the Naza and Windows 10. I have tried 3 others and this one did the trick. BTW if you didn't know, DJI help desk is referring customers to your entry here at FT. Great job and thanx again...

This article is a life saver for me, thanks so much for sharing. Getting my Naza to communicate with my computer was a major road block for me. I am surprised that a company as large as Naza has not taken the steps to ensure ease of installation with Windows 10 systems.

Did everything's no as shown and still it will not respond to being plugged in. What is the refresh thing all about? Is that just for the article on FT?

Computer acknowledged plugging in cable to quad but then still does nothing. No response to stick movements and says it needs plugged into the controller when I want to even run motor test or export settings.

Any ideas.
