USB to TTL Serial Cable Product ID 954

by Profexum on Tue Aug 04, 2020 6:09 pm

Trying to download drivers for the USB to TTL Serial Cable and when it gets to COM PORT it lists 3 but doesn't recognize the cable. I moved to another port (only have two USB ports) and it still does not recognize. What am I doing wrong? Can't seem to get past that part to load drivers so that I can connect a Wit Motion device to my laptop and calibrate device.

Window 7. I ended up buying another cable made specifically by Wit Motion for that application and it was automatic. It's working now. Just need to find out what exact cable to get to connect to Android phone. The manual says a C Type or Mini USB...no part #.

The mini-USB connector was phased out when the industry decided to make micro-B the standard for charging cables. The mini-B connector is about the same width as micro-B, but about twice as thick.

We have a mini-B cable in the shop:
