This is the FTDI USB Driver for Windows (you don't need a Driver for Linux as it is already included in modern Linux Kernels). The newest CDM 2.06.02 Version is available for Win2k/XP/Vista/Win7 32 and 64 Bit. You can use the CDM_Setup to install the Driver BEFORE you attach the USB Interface for the first time! If you want to install it manually, you find the extracted drivers in the apropriate folders on the CD. The Installation is described in the Manual and there are also Installation Guides in the driver folders.

Attention: Windows 7 and Vista can contain a standard Driver for the USB Interface but this one is not complete! It does not have all required Features. So you HAVE TO install the correct Driver BEFORE you attach the USB Interface for the first time! If you did not do this, you have to manually upgrade the Driver with the Windows Device Manager.

Newer Versions of the Drivers can be downloaded from our website or directly from FTDI: http://www.ftdichip.com/
