Windows XP cannot find drivers for my device
Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page
This error can occur if the VID and PID programmed into the device EEPROM do not match those listed in the INF files for the driver. The VID and PID programmed into the device EEPROM may be found by using the USBView utility from the FTDI web site. These can then be checked against the VID and PID entries in the driver INF files. If they do not match, that driver cannot be installed for that device without either re-programming the device EEPROM or modifying the list of VID and PID numbers in the INF files.

Please note that only your own company VID and PID or FTDI's VID (0x0403) and FTDI PID issued for use by your company should be used in the EEPROM and INF/INI files.
