Astroberry does not connect to QHY 268C

Hello, I'm new to astrophotography and got a QHY 268C (and EQ6-R Pro) that I want to connect to my PI4 running Astroberry. The EQ6-R Pro works fine with KStars, but the QHY 268C is not found. I tested the QHY 268C with my Macbook Air M1 and KStars without installing any drivers and also with my Windows PC and NINA after installing the drivers and on both it works fine, so no USB problem with the camera.

lsusb and dmesg don't show anything when plugging the camera into the Astroberry. Could this be the sign of a missing driver or how can I fix this?

Hi Michael,
You saw but you don't read all the thread ;-) You need to use the good fxload file (given with QHY SDK).

I installed the new sdk allready, did not work ... after that I rebuild astroberry and replaced the fxload file in /sbin and it still does not work... I will send the camera back and get a ZWO 2600 instead :(

I tried to connect the camera to an other PI (pihole) and lsusb shows the camera (with no astro drivers and so on installed ...) 

So is this a hardware problem with my astroberry USB (but why does the EQ6-R Pro work?) or a software problem (debian kernel?)?


Edit:

I now changed the Astroberry SD card to the PI3 and everything works fine. The only problem is --> no USB 3 on the PI3, so downloading the images from the cam is very slow. What could cause the problem with both of my PI4´s that the cam is not recognized, but the mount is?
