A little tip regarding the installation of your lead, do not let windows install the drivers, they will not work, these leads are not plug n play, you must use the drivers on the disc supplied, I have seen numerous post on other forums with people complaining that there loaders cannot find a com port to use and when questioned, they admit to letting windows inatall the driver, which it does but it has nothing to do with the lead you are using.:rolleyes:

Im nearly sure I installed the drivers off the Disc and still got problems.. but only on some receivers. Might try another installation again just to be sure.
