We are able to remove -S now right?
Mine isn't detecting them. I have 20 BLT.

http://screencast.com/t/OGXeioWqyw

It's actually disconnecting and reconnecting all the USB devices. Some are failing with port reset failed and aren't coming back up.

Yes there is no -S any more. I assume you're not plugging them into usb3 ports? They have problems for reasons we haven't worked out yet.

Yes I already switched to usb 2 because 3 failed at way lower devices.
Do I need to install winusb? What is that? Right now I'm using the latest FTDI driver..

Yes, as I said in my announce post. The FTDI driver is completely unused by cgminer now. Use zadig (you can get it from my cgminer directory) to install winusb driver and bind it to those devices.

Wow thats a big change. Thanks. Windows users may find this way harder because they are used to real plug and play.

Windows users, do this. Choose one device and replace it with WinUSB, it will replace all similar devices.

http://screencast.com/t/Gep6djxM

The best solution for this is to use a tool called Zadig to set the driver:
 http://sourceforge.net/projects/libwdi/files/zadig/

This allows you set the driver for the device to be WinUSB which is usually
required to make it work if you're having problems

With Zadig, you may need to run it as administrator and if your device is
plugged in but you cannot see it, use the Menu: Options -> List All Devices

You must also make sure you are using the latest libusb-1.0.dll supplied
with cgminer (not the libusbx version)

Bold: What does this mean? There are 3 options, WinUSB, libusb and libusbK. First it says use WinUSB but the bold says to use libusb. Which one is right?

Use WinUSB. The libusb-1.0.dll is already in the cgminer zip folder and it's telling you not to install a different libusb dll.

FTDI is not plug and play for most people either by the way.

I don't know what that means. We aren't even using libusb. Is there a reason someone would use libusb vs WinUSB? And that would be the reason to tell Zadig to use your dll and not theirs?

Don't even think about libusb. Pretend we never mentioned it, it's all something cgminer does internally and you need not worry about it.

Lol ok, please cater us OCD people. I'll try to ignore it. Ok drivers installed. Everything is perfect but one thing, it hashes with 20 devices but only shows 2.

Ok restarting cgminer finally shows them all. Might be a cache thing or a bug?

Does anyone have the link to the CGmimer fine tuning settings for mining BTC? I used the search but could not find it. It's the one around thread concurrency, shaders, worksizes and their factors.

The display has 2 issues:

1) You already know from before about the size issue (and needing to resize the screen for a lot of devices) if you can see 20 already before Smiley

2) If it doesn't detect the device at start up (due to an initialisation failure the first time) it will detect it as a hotplug device 5 seconds later

Hotplug devices don't get added to the screen since curses is a curse Smiley
Though it is on the todo list - but it is only for looks, it doesn't affect mining performance.
But you will see them in the API and of course the total figures will include all the hotplug devices.

New version 3.2.0 - 31st May 2013

Thanks, ckolivas.

Nice! Thanks for your efforts....

<cut>

You are allowed to not quote everything again here...

I hate this kind of crap, this is where ignore comes in great. Cuts the thread down.

Edit:
I'm glad ckolivas, offers this in 7z format, such a great compression method.

Those aren't settings for BTC mining.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.

call me an idiot, but i still can't get this working. i downloaded the latest cgminer, used zadig to change to winusb... but for the life of me i can't figure out how to remove the ftdi driver.

getting these messages:

http://screencast.com/t/F7DSaeslTtVg
A zombie happens when a device is unplugged. However I suspect you didn't actually unplug it based on your surprise? When you hotplug one in, it unfortunately does not appear in the list at the top since that window is (currently) rigidly set at startup. Your average hashrate of 8GH suggests that all 20 are still working so it looks like for whatever reason BLT 18 got unplugged and then hotplugged itself back again. So not sure why it happened here.
