Post subject:  FTDI driver installation woes

Hi,

I've installed FTDI drivers for many devices in the past and even for the Nano USB-to Serial programming adapter below and all fine.

http://www.basicmicro.co.uk/Product/B00 ... ASIC-STAMP

However, try as I might I just can't seem to get the driver installed for the FTDI device on my new BasicATOM Lab Board (B0262) below.

http://www.basicmicro.co.uk/Product/B02 ... onics-Demo

I've tried both a Windows 7 and Windows XP machine and the results are identical, it simply won’t recognise the FTDI device as being compatible with the driver.

The device on the BasicATOM Lab Board (B0262) seems identical to the one on the Nano USB-to Serial programming adapter, yet even when I manually point it at these drivers, it doesn't work - I just get 'Communications Port' with a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

Am I missing something obvious?? :?

Many thanks,

Ian

Is it possible that the FTDI device on the BasicATOM Lab Board (B0262) is a fake and so has been nobbled by the latest FTDI driver?

HI Ian

I am not sure what the problem is here as these devices are not normally a problem to install,

I am 100% sure BasicMicro would never have used any none genuine devices and i have had a look at the other Atom Lab boards we have here and they are the genuine FTDI product,

Try installing the drivers included in the link below, uninstall the exsisting driver first and follow the directions in the TXT file and i am sure that will get you up and running fine :-

Keep us updated on progress,

Many thanks

Hi Dave,

Many thanks for your reply. After looking into the issue I think I've found the cause and you have indeed highlighted it also :)

The FTDI device used seems to have "Basic Micro" burnt into it, so the standard FTDI drivers don't recognize this string. I need to use the driver in the link you've kindly supplied, but sadly this link does not work :(

Might you have another link?

Many thanks.

Ian

Many thanks indeed, but I'm afraid neither IE or Chrome recognize that as a valid link. :?

Thanks for that, corrected the link again,

I am in the middle of moving the files and data from the .com site to the .co.uk site so some things are not linking through correct right now, should have everything sorted next week,
