News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

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:

Zadig replaced mine. Make sure to use administrator.

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.

i THINK the drivers were replaced sucessfully, but cgminer's still throwing the same message.

and now bfgminer doesn't work either - which makes me think two things: oh god i broke it, or yea, the driver is installed.

except bfgminer DOES recognize one of them... which makes no sense to me...

cgminer isn't displaying ANY devices, and the green LED on the sticks isn't doing the usual blinky-when-found-a-share thing. it's just solid green.

Well it is a major code update so we knew there might be problems, and windows was always going to be an issue (when isn't it?). We're probably too trigger happy at calling usb errors as being the same as disconnecting it. For now you might be more comfortable running the display in compact mode so you don't see it unplugging and hotplugging them every so often...

did that. they are. also followed the steps here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=220450.0

everything has a comport. after following those steps (including a reboot) bfgminer's working again, but cgminer remains with the same error.

getting these messages:
 [2013-05-31 08:16:34] USB init, open device failed, err -12, you need to install a Windows USB driver for - AMU device 2:11

That error means exactly what it says:
"you need to install a Windows USB driver for"

It means that zadig hasn't set the driver to WinUSB (or you didn't)
As per FPGA-README, you need to run zadig as administrator,
use the Menu: Options -> List All Devices
then set the device drivers to WinUSB

haah, next reason, why I'm not using windows at all. to much complicated for me.)

on linux (debian) works all like a charm, I just need to install:

sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev and remove timing option and -S /dev/ttyUSBXXX

thanks guys for great work

That page is for the old serial-USB driver for 3.1.1 and before.

For 3.2.0 (and later) you need to use the WinUSB driver as I mentioned above.

i now see that zadig did infact... not do it's job. it's running now, as admin. waiting on completion.

thanks for the help. i feel like an idiot.

did i correctly see that cgminer doesn't like usb 3.0 hubs?

if so, that is likely the explination why, when i just sucessfully installed the winusb driver, it gave no errors, but ALSO said no devices found.

wait, no... cause if that was the case it wouldn't find them ever, regardless of driver...

argh.

Yes windows seems to sometimes get an error that on linux means to drop the device.
On windows it may just mean I need to reinitialise it.
It's at the top of the todo list now.

Anyway once it does drop the device (ZOMBIE), hotplug will pick it up again within 5 seconds.
You can see in the API ... the number of devices will grow by 1 each time this happens (and also each time, a new ZOMBIE will appear with nodev = true)
The ZOMBIE name comes from the fact that I will (soon?) come up with a way to map the hotplug devices back onto the old matching ZOMBIE device ... and revive it ... it's not completely dead yet Smiley

Anyway, this is all display related, the total hashing power should still be the same with a small loss per device (of between 0 and 5 seconds) each time one goes ZOMBIE and then hotplugs.
The 'going ZOMBIE' process is immediate - no delay at all, as soon as a short list of errors occurs, it a slam dunk on the head, ZOMBIE straight away.
If I work out a tidy way to revive it before giving up on it, the only gain will be the time from ZOMBIE to hotplug that is currently lost.
It will simply be the underlying usbutils code that makes the ZOMBIE flag, intercepting the ZOMBIE happening and trying to revive it before giving up on it.

No, someone did report a problem with USB 3.0 once before
It may indeed be, that this is causing your problem also.
OK USB 3.0 also now added to the top of the todo list also.

... and yes this is all Windows ... just in case anyone else was wondering.

Linux should hopefully be rock solid.

I reported USB 3 issues, but it was mostly when using more than a few devices. 1-2 should work fine. But usb 3 is unreliable at this time. Especially with things like mobo drivers trying to add stupid shit like UASP and USB SCSI.
