Perhaps the never keyed and you made the contact barefoot.

You are bricked to point a driver roll back will not fix it. A program that can that can rewrite PID can unbrick it for use with old drivers but it will never support updated drivers and will brick again if you use them.

And just how may users know why their cable no longer works, knows a utility exists, somewhere, to fix it, how to obtain that utility or how to use it? FTDI should have used a non-invasive solution in the first place.

To bad. Buy a new and legal adapter

And just how does the typical user know how to do that, Mr. Know It ALL?

Dah when it quits working replace it.  You fail to understand that you have no right to use stolen intellectual property. Discussing it further is pointless because you cannot grasp this fact.

Prove it! I did.

You just did with your childish response. So sad.

Well since you don't want to prove me wrong...again...then I am right again. You see if you are challenged for truth, you need to step up and prove it. Based on your current response, and past lack of responces to similar challenges...you have no credibility. So I will keep challenging you until you do. But I will give you 1 thing, at least you didn't say I am stupid or insecure this time. So at least your vocabulary is expanding.

You buy a hot/stolen car or product it can be taken from you at any time its discovered.

To be legally "taken back" requires legal action including law enforcement and probably court action.

Not knowing might save you from prosecution buy not from loosing it. You have not right to use stole property and a illegal clone is stolen property.

Not knowing it is a clone would probably cast you as a victim in court, possible able to have charges lodge against whomever sold you the cable.

I hope more vendors do it.

I know you do. Maybe you are the one that should reap what you sow.

Your property is illegal, regardless of whether or not you knew it was illegal.


FDTI has absolutely NO RIGHT to alter MY cable. Period.

While I am not a attorney I see nothing wrong with way they did it. All devices have a PID number for device ID for proper driver installation. The new new driver changes it to a number that is not valid for FDTI chips. I see nothing wrong with this as it just means that FDTI will no longer support bogus chips. There is nothing to stop bogus chip maker from making their own driver or properly licencing FDTI designs.

FDTI has absolutely NO RIGHT to alter MY cable. Period.

Your wrong, they have the right to protect their property. It is not their fault if you use a fake clone.

You are wrong. They are not protecting their property. They are damaging my property. Protecting their property would be writing their software so it would not run on anything but their chips. They must have realized this since they have changed course with their driver; "This will still uphold our stance against devices that are not genuine, but do so in a non-invasive way that means that there is no risk of end user’s hardware being directly affected."

They should have been non-invasive in the first place.

You buy a hot/stolen car or product it can be taken from you at any time its discovered. Not knowing might save you from prosecution buy not from loosing it. You have not right to use stole property and a illegal clone is stolen property. I hope more vendors do it.

This represents an interesting technical challenge, it also explains the delay in replying to your post as I wanted to make sure of what I wanted to say. The interface connector on the Icom PW-1 front panel has 9 pins and they are as follows:

1 CLOCK
2 DATA A
3 DATA K
4 STROBE
5 H12
6 S12
7 DATA 2
8 STROBE 2
9 GROUND

Lines H12, S12 and GROUND are used for power distribution and so need to be reasonably thick if you are running them over a length of fifty feet. The remaining signal lines are serial data and therefore need careful handling if signal integrity is to be preserved over such a long cable length. I therefore suggest that you use two standard twisted pair network cables (8 pairs) wired as follows:

Pair 1 CLOCK & CLOCK ground
Pair 2 DATA A & DATA A ground
Pair 3 DATA K & DATA K ground
Pair 4 STROBE & STROBE ground

Pair 5 DATA 2 & DATA 2 ground
Pair 6 STROBE 2 & STROBE 2 ground
Pair 7 H12
Pair 8 S12

Plus a separate ground lead wired to pin 9

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Peter DL8OV
