Genesys 2 doesn't show up in Vivado 2020.1

I have a new Genesys 2 board from Diligent that I want to program with petalinux. The problem is that I can't get it to show up as a target in petalinux or in Vivado. I am using Vivado/petalinux 2020.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I have installed the genesys 2 board configuration and can see it as a possible board for a new project. I have installed the linux cable drivers. I also tried to connect to it from my windows 10 installation with Vivado 2019.1 but when I connect the usb jtag port to my computer, windows constantly tells me that a usb device has connected or been removed (every 2-4 seconds). I also rebooted my computer once with the board turned on and connected by the jtag port and my computer froze on the motherboard splash screen until I pressed delete to go in the BIOS and then the screen went blank until I restarted with the Genesys 2 turned off.

I'm completely at a loss as to what could be going on here and starting to worry that the Genesys 2 was shipped with a broken jtag programmer. I know the whole board wasn't dead on arrival because I can boot up the demo from its internal memory and it outputs to VGA, connects to ethernet, outputs over UART, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Mitchell

Apparently the USB cable that came in the box doesn't work. I swapped it out and now I'm having no troubles. The strange thing is that I tested that USB cable and it was able to charge my phone, so it isn't completely broken.
