I probably have not tried an FTDICHIP. I have three adapter cables and I have no idea what any of them are. What I have tried, to no avail, is telling Windows to run the software simulating XP. I changed the COM port number to a low number. I tried three different adapter cables and even tried plugging in a different serial cable to the GPS. Just for fun, I am going to try it on a different computer. Also I am going to purchase another adapter based on a couple of recommendations, including the one below.

Try a USB/serial adapter based on the FTDICHIP chipset.
