I've got a device (a Ninja Sphere, if you're curious) that does serial over mini-USB. On my Ubuntu laptop, it shows up as /dev/ttyACM0 and when I
screen into it, I can log in (it's basically Linux on an ARM chip) and do everything, as if I'd SSH'd into it via the network.
When I plug it into my PC, I get "device not recognised", with a device descriptor request failed error. I'd love to do my
screening on my Windows PC, but am not sure how to do it. I tried using PuTTY in serial mode with COM1, COM2, COM3, USB, USB0, USB1 and many other variants, but with no success.
So how does one start a serial connection on a USB device, and how does one do it if it's not showing up as a COM port or something similar?
