Knowing that charging only uses 2 pins, assume other pins are for data transferring.  

Some charge cords have 4 pins, others have 5 pins, and both styles charge ok.

Windows does not see Tracker when plugged into computer USB port.

How are the ‘other’ pins used?  

Difference between 4 pin & 5 pin?

You probablyneed a cable that is for charging but also data.  Cables that do both, are labeled as such.
