Anyone out there with the Tazer Mini and MacOS Big Sur 11.5+?

I’m trying to update the Tazer with the Z Automative Utility 1.6 but it doesn’t find the Tazer when connected. I downloaded and installed Mac 10.9+ supporting driver as well, but with with no luck.

I even hooked it up to my old MacOS 10.11.6 and did all the same steps to no avail. :crying:

I had a similar issue. I can’t remember if I solved the issue by using a different USB-to-mini USB cable, or if I just opened Windows in Fusion.

Great idea, thanks! I bet it was with the Windows software through Fusion as I tried a different cable already. I believe I’ll go with the “Parallels Desktop” as it’s apparently faster than Fusion.

Problem solved!

Hmm, the only Mac I have is the M1 Air, which should still run Intel-based Mac software. I just got my Tazer and haven't tried it yet. Hoping I don't have to go pick up a Windows based cheap laptop just for this?

It’s your cable. Try another one.

I had another cable that I use for my camera that I tried, but to no avail.
I had to try three or four before I found one that worked. 🤷‍♂️

I just received a new driver download from Z Automotive and they say it should work. I’ll be trying again tonight!
