    Just a few follow up questions:

    How do you know that the PixyCam is not connecting?
    Do you have the PixyAdapter properly connected to the PixyCam?
    Do you have the PixyCam connected to the USB while you are connecting the brick to the PixyAdapter?

  3. I attached the the adapter according to instructions but other than that I don't actually know how to check that the cam is connected to adapter

    First try to run the Expolorer program here. If you see the PixyAdapter then try to run the example program here. You will need the NXTCAM block for EV3. Download and install this block and run the test programs. Block import instructions here.

  5. The explorer program has a block missing even after installing the mindsensorNXT cam block

    You must download and import the Mindsensors I2C Address ID and the Mindsensors Read 8Bytes blocks as instructed in the tutorial. Then the blocks will show and the program will perform as expected. If the Adapter is connected properly you should see some basic information on the EV3 screen.

    Can you also please send a picture of the PixyCam connected to the PixyAdapter to support@mindsensors.com?
