Windows 8 won't connect to SG300 via console

I seem to have a very simple comm issue with my new SG300-28 switch . When I tried to connect to it via the console port using my Windows 8 PC it will not see the device even on the active com port and setting at 115200, 8, N, 1 and none (per the admin guide). I've done this a hundered times on routers and switches, but this model seems to require something a little different. Anyone else encounter something like this before??

Bernard,

Are you able to reach the web interface of the switch?

Are you using a blue Cisco console cable or the tan color serial 9 pin cable that came with the switch? The blue cable will not work.
