Oculus link cable

Level 2

Hi there, 
Got a new PC and the Oculus Link (original) cable to my Quest 2 is not working. Its a z690 motherboard with a 3070ti GPU. It has one USBC 3.2 (gen 2) port, and it's running Windows 11. 

I've Googled a lot and have tried quite a few things: 

  • Reinstalled Oculus driver
  • Repaired Oculus installation
  • Change USB power settings and USB power plan. 
  • Change XHCI Hand-off in BIOS to Enabled
  • Beta not enabled
  • Airlink disabled.

Nothing works. 
Here's the odd part. Using a standard Apple USBC-USBC cable it's working. My PC sees the Oculus (device manager) and I can run an experience (tested with Superhot)..

Using the Oculus Link cable the Quest 2 gets power (however barely charging enough to keep the battery at level - tested at 50%), however my PC dont see the device (nothing in Device Manager or USBTreeView). Neither is Oculus PC app able to find the Quest 2. 
So what gives? The cable has worked with my old PC however I haven't been using it for the last year.
