USB driver

To communicate with the T‑POD via a POD USB Adaptor, you need to install a Virtual Com Port driver (made by Future Technology Devices International Ltd).

To install the Virtual Com Port driver:

  1. Click here to open the Future Technology Devices International Ltd drivers download page in a new browser window.

  2. In the VCP section of the page, download the driver 2.04.06, which consists of the file CDM 2.04.06 WHQL Certified.zip (820 KB) into the POD\USB Driver folder on your PC.

  3. In the Future Technology Devices International Ltd drivers download page, click on the Installation Guides link and download the appropriate guide for your operating system into the POD\USB Driver folder.

  4. Open the POD\USB Driver folder on your PC.

  5. Unzip the contents of the file CDM 2.04.06 WHQL Certified.zip into the POD\USB Driver folder.

  6. Follow the Installation Guide procedure to install the driver.

  7. Verify the USB installation on your computer as described in the driver Installation Guide.

The entry should show 'USB Serial Port (COMx)', where x is a value from 2 to 7. Make a note of the number as you will need to enter it when you run TPOD.exe.

Installation is complete and your computer is now ready to communicate with the T‑POD.
