Is the Basic Micro Communications Port still available?

I just tried one that I'd bought a while back, and although the PC sees it as such, it is not successful in assigning it as a com port. Is there a new driver available?

Thanks,

Alan KM6VV

Downloaded the driver, but didn't help.

What OS are you using? If it sees the device but isnt installing the driver you may need to manually install the driver. Follow the alternative installation instructions in the FTDI driver(included in a zip file with the regular driver download).

Windoz XP Pro.
When I tell the device driver manager to re-load the driver, it says it can't find anything better, but re-starting the driver gives a yellow '!' and indicates "Problem during installation, may not work" as a result.

C:\BASICMICROCOMMUNICATIONSPORT

I ran the DPInst32.exe file I found (didn't find instructions), and the driver seems to be installed, and recognizes the device.

I went to simply loop it back, and I notice SER, RES and GND on the connector. Now that I remember, that's for talking to a BasicMicro chip, right? So not the cable I thought I had! I need TTL RX/TX which I know I bought from someone...

I'll have to look around a little more. I only need to do RX from the board, so may be able to use it.

What's this product name, other then BASICMICROCOMMUNICATIONSPORT? Do you still offer it for sale? I must have some FTDI cables around here somewhere...

Thanks for the reply.
