If there is no signal, then you may be on the RX line. Skip to main content. So when you touch the red multimeter to 1 wire, and the black multimeter to one of the USB jack ends, you should see 0 Ohm or hear a Beep That means you have the same wire. Tried an old laptop with XP. Between each attempt I restarted windows after uninstalling previous driver and restarted again after installing new driver.

That leaves your other line as RX.

Installed the driver and utility from the Serial Recovery Wiki. Wrong unfortunately, the multimeter does NOT provide power.

Zedboard forums is currently read-only while it under goes maintenance. Mon Jun 13, 0: Cannot see new device, COM port in device manager. I measured all the wires.

I have Win 7 x They are very clsoe together on the Zedboard, jeje. Black is the only wire to give a reading, and when i touch the red wire, and hold it to the positive lead my Win 7 PC actually recognized the cable.

Hooked up the red cable to match up to the 3V3 pad on the router for power and twisted the blue and white just to test out the prolific drivers from the wiki. Hooked up the power and ground to the router. Hi Carlitos, Unfortunatly I haven’t encountered your issue in the past.
