Hey @Marced95! Thank you so much for reaching out regarding this issue and we appreciate you providing a photo of what's going on as well. From what we understand you are trying to connect your Meta Quest headset to your PC using USB-C and USB 3 but it is being recognized as USB 2. We want you to be able to experience how amazing VR on a PC can be so lets get right into how we can help you out. What we would suggest is that you try to update your USB divers first. According to Microsoft Help Center article you can find the steps on how to update your USB drivers here.

USB driver updates should be included with Windows updates. If you have a problem with updating the USB drivers, you can check if you are running the most up-to-date version of Windows and update accordingly.


Looking forward to see if this fixes your issue but if not, please shoot us another message!
