Hello, I bought the fingerprint scanner from adafruit but I am currently having issues with opening it via the SFG Demo. When I click the open device and select the com port for the arduino board I receive an open device error. After trying a few more times I was finally able to scan a fingerprint 2 times but kept receiving the "Enrollment error scan again" notification after about the 3rd attempt the light on the scanner does not come on again even though I was prompted to place finger on scanner. Please note:
1. I am using windows 8.
2. I have Soldered the wires from the fingerprint scanner to thicker wires to increase connectivity.
3. The Open device error comes on after a few attempts.
