Don't know if this belongs in Computers or Digital so forgive me. I have an older RigExpertSD interface with the cable for an Icom 756pro2 plugged into the CIV jack. Device Manager (Win7) says it's on Com10 so I have my logging software (WinEQF 2.22) set to that. Been trying different combinations of com port parameters and nothing seems to get my xcvr to talk to the PC. Any hints appreciated!  73, Ian N8IK

Have you checked to see that the radio and software are set to the same CIV address and baud rate?

Hi Ian:
Are you using a USB-Serial adaptor cable for the
RigExpert to computer, or is it straight USB?

For some reason I don't understand, Windows 7
doesn't work well with certain USB-Serial Adapters.

I had a very similar problem.
(Computer wouldn't operate serial device,
even though it was recognized)

I was told to only use USB-Serial Adapters that
use the FTDI Chipset when using Windows 7.

It solved the problem.....and then a second time as well.

Don't ask me the hows & whys, I'm a Computer Tech-Tard.
But I know what works for me.

The RigexpertSD has built-in USB using a FTDI chipset.  The FTDI driver sets it up as a serial port.
