updated. If you have a cable with an unauthorized copy of a Prolific chip
(many do), then you must use an older driver (v3.2.0.0). Visit the
Miklor.com website and follow the instructions on the "USB Cables and
Drivers" page to for instructions on how to determine if you have the
correct driver installed and how to install it if you don't.
