oculus link not working with usb c port

I recently got an oculus quest (not 2) and wanted to play a steam vr game using oculus link.

When trying to set up oculus link my pc would not recognize the quest, when I used the included charging cable going into a usb c port on my motherboard. I have seen multiple youtube videos saying that link should work with the included cable rn.

When connecting the quest via my phone charger using one of the usb A ports on the front of my case, it worked and I was able to setup the link software.

This calbe is obviously way to short to use for playing games.

What could be the cause of the usb c port not working? when plugging the cable in the quest does charge so the usb c port provides power.

I've seen this issue before and the fix was use another usb port. Sometimes the quest just doesn't like a particular port happens a lot with usb c ports on desktop not much to do about it.

I only have one usb c port so I can't try other ports

maby I can buy an adapter and use it that way

Or just get a usb a to usb c cable. Either way make sure both are usb 3.0 (or 3.1 or whatever they want to call it these days).

I'd just google quest cable and get whatever google brings up. I mean basically any decent quality usb 3.0 cable that is not longer than 5m should do the trick. Or an adapter.

thank you both a lot

my dad just found a usb extension cord we had lying around and paring that with my phone charger seems to work.

(I really love this forum, always people helping out within no time)
