The USB driver is pretty picky, especially with Windows 10, you may try different USB port to see if that helps. You may have to use a different PC. If you have Windows 7 PC that may help as well.

I have not tried to flash Tanix TX5 Max yet myself because there is no official FW from Tanix website yet.

But you can try this.
I'll try it when I'm back at home. So I download the zip file and update via Ext right?

for some of the boxes, you just need to insert the sdcard , turn on the power, and the box will start to flash firmware . remember not to use reset button during boot.

for some version of firmware update, you can use the option [apply update from ext] in the recovery menu.

before your attempts to flash firmware, have you try doing wipe cache partition, factory reset from the recovery menu? sometimes these methods can recovery the box without flashing firmware.

if you still cannot recover the box, explain in fine details how did you create the sd card and how did you use the usb method - you might be doing the wrong way but no one in the forum can tell if you just say "use a USB A cable but PC can't seem to detect the box"
Hi Gregory, I tried wiping and factory reset but they all gave errors. I'll try with the microSD card without using the reset button tonight.

I followed this guide and created both the USB thumb drive and microSD card using an .img file ( using Burn Card Maker. It says keep the flash mode button (reset button) pressed but it always end up booting into recovery instead of flashing.
