2) Plug in the terminal cord to the USB port, and connect the cord to the port at the top of the terminal making sure the cord is pushed all the way in. It may take a few minutes for the terminal display to turn on while the battery charges.
3) The driver for the terminal should begin installing automatically. A message will appear once the driver has been installed. If the driver does not install properly, click here for instructions to download driver software.
4) In the Device Manager window, click on the small arrow next to Ports (COM & LPT). You should see PI USB to Serial (COMX) where 'X' is a number.
5) To verify that the driver is working properly, unplug the terminal. PI USB to Serial (COMX) should disappear from the list in the Device Manager window.
6) Plug in the terminal again. PI USB to Serial (COMX) should appear again in the Device Manager window.
If the Ports (COM & LPT) option is not appearing when the terminal is plugged in:
- Unplug and plug in the cord on the top of the terminal. Verify the terminal is plugged in firmly (top of terminal and into the computer itself).
- Install the driver manually. Click here for instructions.
- Unplug the terminal and try another USB Port.
- If none of the above resolve the issue, restart the computer and repeat previous steps.
