hi
Rikorocket has a link to the ftdi site that will auto install them on your pc.

The way i did mine was to download the link via smartphone and then send the file to the pc via bluetooth.

I think the link to the ftdi site may also be on the ssdc website.

Quote from SSDC website;

No driver disc is needed for Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7. If you do find you need a driver then select the VCP version on www.ftdichip.com The cable works for both Windows 7 (32 bit) and Windows 7 (64 bit). Earlier Windows 7 issues referred to in Slotforum are overcome with this latest version. Compliant with USB 2.0/1.1 standards.

Hope it helps.

Yes, that will work from usb. I recently installed the drivers for the richg cable that way. It is even better to not have internet access to prevent automatic search for drivers. Just google on ftdi drivers for Xp. Good luck!

hi
on the main sreen of ssdc you will see a tab entitled powerbase port,you just need to click the roght one to get it to connect.

Also need to select the appropriate power base type,this is nect to the powrbase port tab and is seen as the chequered flag symbol.

I find that you need to fire up the pb first then the pc to get it to connect first time every time.
