When I first got my PogoPlug there was a wiki for how to go about creating a USB serial cable (think it was something like - http://Arch Linux ARM.com/index.php5/Hardware ... Pro_Serial). Well after the Site face book, some of those articles went missing, so can't reference it. But I ended up purchasing from amazon a 'Nokia phone' cable (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000M8WA2G). Which now looking at that page, it is a different product name than what my Invoice had listed which was (OEM Nokia 7210 6800 6610 6200....)
Anyways, recently I reinstalled my Win7 OS, and I lost the driver for this cable. When I first made the cable, I remember having a hard time finding a working driver.. but eventually I got something working. My problem is that in the last few days, I have tried about 15 different Prolific drivers & versions.. Nothing is working. When I look at the windows device manager, I see the error "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". Googl'ing for that, you see comments about Prolific chips being hit or miss, or that there are counterfeit chips..
So I was curious if anyone else had this difficulty, if so did you find a solution ? If not, I am fine buying another cable, but this time would prefer something a bit more reliable, any suggestions ?
Whats funny, this cable seems to work just fine under linux & the pl2303 driver loads. When I do an lsusb -v I see
