Problem with multiple FTDI devices

4 posts in this topic

Just a quick bug report (is there a bug system?) that the FTDI code doesn't currently handle multiple devices well. If I have my TinCanTools Flyswatter (2) attached also, and the Papilio is not the first FTDI device...boom :) If I get chance, I'll look into a patch, but it's probably a straightforward fix for you, Jack. I'm using the github sources.

Hello JCM,

Thank you for the report, there is , issue tracking with the github repositories. I posted this issue there too.

The best solution is probably to use a custom VID/PID for the Papilio to avoid problems like this, but then again, that doesn't do anything for having multiple Papilio boards connected at once...

We'll have to dig deeper for a solution.

Jack.

Is there a work around for this issue?    I've just received my Papilio Pro and discovered this issue.   Unfortunately I have FTDI's inside my computer case, and right now the only way I've been able use the loader is to remove the case and unplug these devices, transfer the bit file, ,reconnect and close the case up.
