Serial TTL Cable faulty

by jess_stephenson on Tue Jul 05, 2022 1:38 pm

I ordered a USB to TTL cable recently and it does not show up in device manager on Windows. At first it was causing a power surge on my USB ports so I am now using a powered USB hub that is working for my mouse but the cable is not showing up anywhere. I have also downloaded many drivers and none of them are solving the issue.

That sounds like a short circuit somewhere in the cable.

Send a note containing a link to this page and your order number to support@adafruit.com. The folks there will get you a replacement.
