- Download Putty.exe(Its the best )

Got to device manager in Windows and find what COM port the USB device is using (mine tends to favor either COM5 or COM6)

- Open Putty.exe

- Select the Serial radio button

- Type in COMx (x being the number)

- Click connect

Hope that fixes the issue

Ya, I have tried putty too, and It just does nothing.  When I

select the serial button and put in the correct COMx number and hit open it just doesnt do anything

By the way I have tried this on a windows 7 laptop and a windows 7 desktop same issue.  Tried on a windows xp works fine

I got this working finally, strangely enough the power cord was bad.  Thanks for your suggestion
