- Verify that the USB - CEC Adapter is correctly connected to the devices.
- Unplug then plug back in the USB - CEC Adapter to Windows 10 computer.
- On the Windows 10 computer, make sure that the USB - CEC adapter is recognized in Device Manager.

PlayStation SDK Target Manager Server install location¶
It is highly recommended to install the PlayStation SDK Target Manager Server in its default install
location. However, if this is not possible for you or you are using a different drive letter other
C: then please following the steps below.
No C: drive¶
If you do not use a
C: drive, then you will have to create a virtual drive using
subst C: YOUR_DRIVE:\
For example, lets say you only have a
D: drive and you need to map it to
subst C: D:\
Suitest requires the Target Manager Server to be placed in its default location.
C:\Program Files (x86)\SCE\ORBIS\Tools\Target Manager Server\bin
If it is not found in the default location, then there is a fallback location.
Therefore, if you do not have the SDK installed in its default location, you must create a symbolic link
into fallback path using
mklink /d C:\PlayStationTMS YOUR_LOCATION
mklink /d C:\PlayStationTMS "X:\Cookie Monster\PlayStation\SCE\ORBIS\Tools\Target Manager Server\bin"
