I'm running Window 7 64bit with the U7778 PC interface and a U7134 DSP. At first I installed the drivers that came with U7778 and when plugging the tool in windows said the driver was not successful installed and the device manager had a yellow icon by my device. I then tried another driver from that people said had been working. Installed that and restarted. Now everytime I plug the tool in through the USB to serial I no longer get a yellow icon or anything saying that an install failed. However, DS Downloader still can't connect to the tool. Any ideas? This is only my second time using this cable and I remember a while back I had issues before. Any help will be much appreciated.

The USB settings are correct.

Edit: I've also tried running DS downloader in windows XP service pack 2 and 3 compatibility mode with no luck. I noticed a lot of people were replacing their USB to Serial cables with good results, but that didn't work for me either.

So I installed the drivers that were included with the new usb to serial cable. I went to device manager and noticed that there was a yellow icon on the device once again. I right clicked the device and clicked the update drivers button and windows said it successfully updated them. Restarted my computer and it found my tool.
