What cable do you have, - Maxton Data
and what version of Windows are you running- XP
Device Manager on your PC, the USB cable will show up -it does show up - not drivers are installed - therefore I do not see any cable settings
The programing software has 2 choices for com ports 1 and 2.
I think you wanted to say: no drivers are installed
If that is the case, you can find the drivers on Maxton's web site
Once you have the drivers installed you should be able to edit the device in the Device Manager and select the appropriate COM port. You would need to set it to 1 or 2, and then make the corollary change in the programming software.
OTOH, maybe you do not actually have a Maxton cable. The 2 most common USB chip sets are FTDI and Prolific. FTDI drivers are available from their web site
. Prolific drivers are also available, but because that chipset is commonly forged, the Prolific drivers may not actually work if your cable uses forged chips.
You can determine the actual chip set in use through the Device Manager. What you want to look for are the Vendor ID
and Product ID
. They will probably be shown as 2 digit hex numbers. Like a9ac. For more information and specific instructions for Windows, see this web page
