[SOLVED] Driver USB for PySense Windows 7 64b
Hi everybody, I'm new.
I purchased two LoPy and two PySense expansion boards.
I'm trying to connect the PySense (with the LoPy attached) to the PC.
My PC have a Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bits.
The OS not recognise the driver (COM port) automactily.
I dowloaded this drivers: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM v2.12.26 WHQL Certified.zip
At de 'Device Manager' appears a new device named PySense
Then when I update the driver with the downloaded FTDI driver the device appear as a 'Com Port(COM31)' but I can't comunicate with it.
Can you help me?
Thanks a lot.
@jmarcelino Thanks! Works fine now. Best, Marco
Should appear as /dev/cu.usbmodemPyxxxxxx
Are you using a microUSB cable that is suitable for data? (some are power/charging only)
@bucknall Yes. What port should I enter in the settings, if listing /dev/cu.* gives me nothing?
@marcozennaro Are you using the Pymakr Plugin for Atom?
@bucknall I am using a LoPy with the latest firmware. I can connect via WiFi and I have tested the example. I can read the accelerometer. But I cannot connect via USB. I tried on a Mac and on a Linux machine. Connection to the expansion board has always worked fine. Any suggestion? Marco
@marcozennaro You shouldn't need drivers for Linux and Mac - it will work out of the box! Documentation explaining how to get started will be going live soon - I'll drop a link here when it's ready!
@bucknall Thanks Alex for the info. What about Linux and Mac? How to use PySense with them? Thanks! Marco
OK, thanks a lot. I'll wait for it.
We have a Windows 7 driver that will be released either today or tomorrow. I will post back here when it is out.
Thanks for your patience!
