Folks, I have been using an old XP / HRD with my TS-590 for years now.  With the advent of XP going away, I purchased a high tier (for me..) Windows Professional 64 bit box. 
I have a problem accessing my 590.  I only have one Com (Com 3) connected (keeping the box basic) until I know that works.  I can see Com 3 in the HRD Com selection and selected that.  Having no luck on that... I changed that Com from 3 to 5 and again selected it.  I switched the cable back to the XP and all seems to work perfect but when I switch the USB back to the new computer... it does not communicate.    I wanted to make sure that the old program worked before purchasing the new HRD. I have 5 now and (guess) they are at 7 now.  Any thoughts?  Frank KG9H kg9hfrank@gmail.com

OK, figured it out.  While I plugged in and Windows installed the driver for Codec, etc... for that cable... it did not "see the cable" and update the driver.
Only when I plugged in and unplugged the cable about three times... did it see the driver was not installed.  A simple install of the 64 bit and I have HRD running again.

Typically you install driver, then you plug in cable.

Hmm, OK, thanks.
Not having the driver... I was hoping Windows would determine that.
In the end... and after a few a few "plug-in, pull it out, then plug it in again..." Windows figured I did not have the driver.
Bravo Windows..
