Tried the libusb-win32 driver thru Zadig just for kicks and cgminer told me I need a WinUSB driver for the device, so it seems my system is seeing something there.  Gives me hope at least, must dance more.

./cgminer.exe -n

will tell you if you have zadig setup correctly since it will show you the device if it is setup correctly

Thanks, I will try that, too.  So far no amount of restarting, replugging, or re-drivering has had any effect.  I'm booting up an old laptop to see if I have any luck with another computer.



EDIT

Ok, here's the result, looks good to me (?).

I just got an U3 a few days ago, and what I have found is trying to run 4.9.1 it will not find any of the miners. U2 or U3.
but drop back to 4.9.0 and it finds all the U2s and U3. and only once in a while when starting up does it think one of the U2s is a U3.
also having it run with the 4.9.0 and then trying to upgrade to 4.9.1 it "kills the drivers" to put it one way. have to install the drivers again then unplug and plug or power off the hubs to get them back.

so to the person that is having problems try 4.9.0 and see if it works.
because as of right now I can't run 4.9.1 on windows 7 64bit....

Thank you for sharing your experience, I will d/l 4.9.0 and see if I have any luck there.

FWIW, I d/l the cgminer version from Bitmain and it gave me the same results, No Devices Found!

OK, so zidag is setup correctly, just the U3 detection is failing.
So one of: cable/USB problems, U3 problem, windows cgminer detection problem.
For want of a better suggestion, maybe try linux?
(ubuntu 14.04 would be my suggestion since it's simple to setup/add to a desktop if you have a spare disk/spare disk space)

I don't think it's a cable/USB issue, I don't have any other USB problems and I'm using one of my personal USB cables, not the one it came with, tried several different USB ports on my computer and laptop.
Never used linux, but I'll give it a shot, thanks.  I've got plenty of space on my A/V drive, it's a whoppper.

FWIW, I d/l the cgminer version from Bitmain and it gave me the same results, No Devices Found!

So I tried 4.9.0 and had much more success!  There may be some sort of bug with 4.9.1 and the U3.
But now I am at another hurdle.  Here's what happens with 4.9.0:

Started cgminer 4.9.1
Probing for an alive pool
Waiting for work to be available from pools.


Then is just quits back to the command line after sitting there a minute.  This is exactly how far I got with my Cryptorig Hitchhiker usb stick (Bitfury ASIC, same chip used in red fury, blue fury) which I posted about in the ckpool thread.

Following advice in that thread, I ping'd solo.ckpool.org successfully, however, telnet solo.ckpool.org 3333 resulted in Connection Failed, could not open connection to the host on port 3333.  So probably some sort of firewall issue on my end?  Any idea what I need to do to successfully connect to port 3333, do I need to open that port on my firewall as well?  Seems like once I figure this out I'm home free (with both miners), just have to use 4.9.0 with the U3.

from the solo page it shows

cgminer -o stratum+tcp://solo.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1PKN98VN2z5gwSGZvGKS2bj8aADZBkyhkZ.0 -p x



note that there is a ":" without the "s, so if you copy all of the above and replace the btc address with your btc wallet address it should work maybe, all the servers that use stratum+tcp have the above format of server:port   
and in your post you don't show any : between the server and port.... and the above -u with is the btc address.worker note the "." without the "s again. 
to restate the above format is vary much standard format ...

Got it working!  I opened TCP port 3333 to outgoing traffic on my firewall and using cgminer 4.9.0 I am now successfully mining on ckpool!  Thank you so much for all the help everyone!

So it appears there is a bug with 4.9.1 that it is not recognizing the U3, something to look at for the next build I suppose?

Hi,
do you know why I can't get the pools passwords via API? I use this command: {"command":"summary+devs+pools"} on an Antminer S1 (cgminer 4.3.2a). There is almost everything but the pools passwords.
Any idea?

Please be aware that the troll replying to you in the hostile fork of cgminer thread has provided you with false information.

The cgminer option to suggest pool difficulty is based on the suggestion from the main designer of stratum, slush, to use the option "--suggest-diff"
As per here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=108533.msg1543341#msg1543341
Also copied in the forum stratum documentation thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=557866.msg6078255#msg6078255

The hostile fork did it differently, and when I pointed that out, it was ignored and not corrected:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=557991.msg6079177#msg6079177

One of the reasons why it is called a hostile fork, is that when he forked cgminer, the first thing he did was remove ckolivas donation address and replace it with his own donation address.

Ever since then he has copied much of the code changes we have done in cgminer, but as far as I know hasn't passed any meaningful donations on he has received
https://github.com/luke-jr/bfgminer/commit/b9df56511c7bd1a2e1f075e9c184c1a4b0f1ba20

Then of course there's the post about how he claimed all sorts of cgminer code as his own, but I've proven otherwise:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=78192.msg1467026#msg1467026

And last but not least, the many years of him arguing that cgminer was a fork of his hostile fork and his wasn't the fork ... and yet his own git commits he called his fork ... a fork ... even in the first commit above (repeated here) Tongue

No.
It is a password.
If the pool doesn't require a password, then it doesn't matter.
If the pool does require a password then you should know what it is Tongue
You can also login to the S1 to find it.

Happy to report that I plugged in my nanofury usb stick, zadig'd it, and cgminer picked it right up on the fly.  Fear my massive hash! Smiley  Well, at least I'm hashing more than the entire BTC network in early 2011.  Tongue



Thanks again for all the help!

There is no file ending with ".conf" until you have created one. Thus the reason it shuts down.
