Help me locate the serial/Bluetooth to USB Article
Posted 21 March 2013 - 10:22 AM
The MeadeHbx/Serial/Bluetooth circuits and the Bluetooth/USB/Computer circuits are ready now, but I have lost the article that explains how to set it up?
Anyone remember this article and its location perhaps on Cloudy Nights?

Thanks very much,

If you inadvertently plug in the BlueTooth to another USB port, the computer will assign another com number and the original com port will stay associated with the BlueTooth device and you will not see it listed in the hardware section of control panel!
This is very frustrating...
I wish I could find a YouTube or article on the internet that can explain this troublesome attribute to Windows and could present the way to remove the already assigned port, and start from fresh from the beginning.
If ya happen upon an site that shows an easy fix, please let me know.

Here is a free utility that will give you much more information about assigned USB ports in Windows -- much more than Control Panel. In addition, it allows you to delete assigned ports you no longer use. I have used it several times to solve the problem you are currently facing.

Hope this helps,
