PICAXE USB Cable
September 26, 2012
So my starter kit finally arrived and I've been setting up the robot by following the instructions as on the startpage, but when I get to the cable connecting part, something seems to be wrong.
I downloaded the Programming Editor, and the cable driver, from picaxe.com, I follow the instructions from the driver manual, but the editor just says 'Serial port error - port not present or already in use!'
When I insert the cable, the manual says my cable should be found in device manager -> Ports (COM & LPT), and mine isnt. It is found in 'Other devices', with a yellow triangle exclamation mark.
I have tried reinstalling the driver and other software, rebooting, but none helped.
Can someone help me with this issue please? I've searched on the forum for same topics, but couldn't exactly find a solution.
(Windows 7 - 64 bit)
Thanks in advance
