FlashMagic on PCs USB-Port
« on: November 23, 2007, 10:06:44 am »
Programming via USB-Port and USB/RS232-Converter does not work.
Terminal tool using the same Converter is working properly.
Using a Desktop with true RS232-Port is also o.k.
Unfortunately I have to use the notebook with USB.
I'm using V 3.61.230

only (as far as can be determined by the many posts on this subject) USB to serial converteres based on a FTDI chip works.

Most USB to serial converters should correctly be named USB to some kind of partial serial converters.

What do you mean by "does not work"? I need more details like what you were doing and what the error message is.
How are you placing the device into ISP mode?
