    Downloading drivers for Windows 10

    I am attempting to re program my BBSHD and have downloaded the program, but am unable to find the correct driver to work with WIndows 10. Can someone lead me in the correct direction?
    Thanks

    Windows 10 does not need drivers. See here, https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...shd-mid-drives If it can't connect with Windows 10, it isn't because it needs drivers, it is because Windows assigned the wrong port. You can either change the port number in Windows Device Manager, or you can plug the cable into another USB port and hope Windows assigns a different port to it.

      Hi Jas. Yours is not a helpful answer. He was looking for the drivers that are apparently missing from his windows instance (as am I). Mine shows up as unknown serial port. Not as a USB com port (that you can change them number) If anyone finds a kosher driver for the Luna Bafang programming cable, please post ? I think mine is using a MH (? Manhattan Lab ?) chipset.

    The cable I got from Luna a year or so ago does require separate drivers that aren't in win10

    It depends on the cable - they are not all the same and there are more than a couple of chipsets used and frankly only a couple (FTDI for one) have the drivers included in win10

      chumanfoo, here's what I used with the luna cable I bought a couple of years ago - I don't know what they're shipping today so if it works for you, let us know

        Thanks AZguy. In the last couple of days I found one that mostly works for my cable here: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials...-you-need-them. What I mean by "mostly works" is that it only works when I bend the connector on the bike side of the cable at a particular angle (blue lights come on only when I bend the cable). So it seems like there's a physical problem on the cable itself. Guess that's the next step, order another cable for more layers of fun. In the mean time the bike is down. I think it's because the config tool program tried to push a config down through the flaky cable and the controller on the bike only got bits and pieces of the config. Does that make sense?

      If you feel like soldering you can buy a display extension cable and make your own - I can send you a link for little USB-UART modules I've been using for several projects that have drivers integrated windows - I use quite a number of win build and never a challenge with them

        ameridroid.com has win10 compatible usb-uart modules for development and debugging purposes on single board computers, but they might be useful for this with tinkering unless usb-uart modules are application specific.
