I am using python and I have trouble connecting to a device through an FTDI Serial-USB connection.
On a Windows 7 laptop, it works correctly and does not give any issue, ports are seen as they should and the connection goes straight without any trouble.
On another laptop, with Windows 10, it is all another story. Sometimes the python script is not able to see any device connected. From the Device Manager I can correctly see the COM port attached but if I use the
mode command from the prompt it does not report any port, or it gives the same device on another COM.
The python code is exactly the same on both laptops.
I checked and I am using the latest driver from FTDI and I have never seen any issue regarding fake FTDI chip, even if I could not assure it is original. Any idea what is happening?
