    This can be a common problem, not certain whether it is the OC USB interface or Windows. I found that the answer generally lies in making sure that you use a motherboard USB port and not thru a remote hub.

    Sorry to hear that. I am not versant with Windows 7 (still on good old XP). If you have the usual control panel, then go into system, hardware, device manager, view. Select "show hidden devices" and then uninstall any "Unkown Devices" in the list of USB connections. Reboot and try again.

    Good luck

    Re: OC USBKeys card not recognized in windows 7

    Hi Jason,

    I use Windows 7 64-bit, USBKeys Card and SIOC together no problem.

    I had no problems at all, it worked out of the box, and, in fact, I have it plugged in to a powered USB Hub. I have also tested "motherboard" USB Plugs, these give equally satisfying results.

    Eve though windows does not recognise the device, does SIOC recognise it in the main window? Also, try connecting up some switches in the Matrix configuration and using the very latest USBKeys testing Software to drive the device.

    I really hope you sort it out, but I can tell you that it definitely DOES work on W7 (at least for me and a few other users).

    Best wishes,

    Jack

    Re: OC USBKeys card not recognized in windows 7

    hi jack, have treid with soic with no luck,

    i don't suppose you could tell me if all th numbers are the same on the two smaller ic's on your card? i only ask as some of the numbers are different on my ics and i am just wondering if maybe that has got something to do with it, it would at least allow me to cross something else of the list

    cheers

    Jason

    I'm very sorry Jason, I cannot physically see the card as I have mounted it on a bolted panel. And, since this panel is fixed against a wall, I cannot get to the card without unbolting it, which takes awhile.

    thats ok was a bit of a long shot, i had a feeling that it would be buried ten layers deep .

    i guess my only course now will be to buy a pre assembled one from oc and see if that works.

    Re: OC USBKeys card not recognized in windows 7

    Hi Jason,
    If this is a kit make sure that you have the correct value of resistor fitted to R1 R2 R3. Measure them to make sure. I built a usb i/f(not usb keys) and had fitted incorrect resistors that bias the data lines. With no chip in the board my card would say it was not recognised, till i fitted the correct resistors.
    If you need confirmation on chip numbers (74hc541) have alook at their video. The number you need to wory about is 74HC541.
    Can you give us hi res pic?
    Hope this helps.
    Les
    P.S do you still have your TRir 4 for sale.
