Approved FTDI-based USB Drivers
An FTDI-based adaptor has been standard with all Computrainer sales since Dec 2008, at which point all in house support for the Sewell adaptor was suspended.The first FTDI USB to Serial Adaptor is recognised by the tan and blue housingwith blue lights flashing when in use. This driver is the same for all FTDI adaptors including our new custom FTDI USB to Stereo Adaptor with all new Computrainers as of January 2009.
This driver executable is the same for all operating systemsand will correctly detect and install the driver for the operating system that you have.
