Flashes like that all the time ?
What happens just after you connect, never rapid flash ?

If you see only one Tx bar, try reinstalling driver:

When i connect the cc3d via usb, the orange led light for a short time. Then it's starts rapid flashing.
The board are not shown in the Windows Devicemanager.

hello I have the same problem, I think orange led are in boards that are clones of the real cc3d, i have tried all to bring it to life but is impossible, I don't think what happen with my board, I used an FTDI cable and bridge the to pads with my finger and plug in in the usb of my pc, st flash demonstrator tool detect it and I could flash it with the firmware original from cc3d but it doesnt work too and I could realize that my board has 64K of flash not 128K like original so it can be the problem why it doesn't work, maybe clones has a light firmware of the original.

The problem with mine is when I want to save config to the cc3d from librepilot it stuck at 'preparing mixer settings'.

Any solution??

IF this is the problem:  Original firmware.  Maybe Google to find manufacturer and get from them.  Or just go to CleanFlight.  Sorry.

I would post a high res picture of your main chips: CPU and external flash chip.

i dont know what is the manufacturer but I solve the problem finally, but not with librepilot, with librepilot stuck when you save the config, it say preparing mixer settings and not continue.

Well so what I did is flash the bootloader of betaflight via ST flash demo tool in boot mode, connect the board via FTDI in boot mode (bridge spb and 3.3v) and flash betaflight, now is working perfectly and betaflight is better software, with librepilot motors started asynchronous but with betaflight all work perfectly. Thanks.
