I am trying to use a Prolific USB-to-Serial adapter with CodeWarrior (version 5). My processor is an MC6868HC908KX8, and the board programs properly on other computers with serial ports. Unfortunately, I am now using a computer with USB only. CodeWarrior will not recognize COM6 (the USB-to-Serial adapter). I have installed all available patches and updates for both CodeWarrior and the USB-to-Serial adaptor. I have also tried refresh.
Interestingly, this same Prolific USB-to-Serial adapter worked until I changed my hard drive and reinstalled CodeWarrior. COM6 used to appear in the list of COM ports, and I successfully programmed an earlier revision of this board (the revision was extremely minor – jumpers were added).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
