Here is what I am getting with mine.  I might try lowering the Oscillating a bit to see if it reduces errors but this is un-overclocked.
Runs great and cool with and Artic Breeze fan on it.

Thanks.  Smiley
I just wish I could afford a couple more of them they work great and don't cause conflicts with my RedFuries or other USB ASIC's.

Hello All

After installing new firmware I was able to get the Bi*Furys to work using Zadig on CGminer.

This will show the mines under USB on device manger.

As I have been using BFGminer the Bi*Furys were not recognised even when I used the FDTI drivers still no luck.

I found this link on another thread, and installed the drivers, and windows did recognise it and gave it a com number, now I am able to use the Bi*Furys on BFGminer.

Hope this help anyone.

Link below for drivers.

Hello, you should use our dedicated driver for BFGminer instead zadig for first time.
You can find it on our support site cryptostore.io/support in BFGminer section.

Still cant get my bi*fury's to run on raspberry... If its the same problem a week from now, im going to sell them again.

What a waste of money and time, and no support from sellers what so ever.



DONT BUY THESE

They won't run on a rasberry pi as the native usb ports do not give enougth power. The pi also does not detect USB 3 hubs which you pretty much need for these. Try hooking the pi up to a POWERED USB 2 hub and make sure it has plenty of power. Using a 48W USB3 hub i can only run 4 of these on one hub.

I am using a powered USB 2.0 Hub, with the red wire cut in the usb cable. Works just fine on windows 7. But no matter what i do, i cant get them to be detected on the rasp. Not even one.

I really think Felipeo or someone else from the store should come with a solution to this. Since there is no point in running them on a machine with a big psu, i end up using more power then im gaining from mining this way.

Problem is that every body have different condition and we can't answer all question for every body and support all customer fully.
That is reason of topic like this, people can write what setup they have and what hashrate they reached.
Please understand this is custom hardware and mining isn't easy, especially on ARM.

Just be aware that if your house burns down from a user modified USB Hub, your insurance company isn't going to pay you.

Hi,

Just received mine, but I am having problems installing the BFG compatible driver.
When I try to update the drive (from device manager), I get the error message:

"The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems."

I'm running Win7 64bit.
Any advice?

Thanks

Are you pointing Windows to the directory that has your bifury_c4C.inf file?  That is the file that Windows is looking for?  It will work with the 64-bit version.

since i bought my usb fan i keep getting 2-3 gh/s i did everything and it still won't go to 5. I tried:

1. Unplug usb fan

2. Plug usb fan into different port with usb power instead of power from power supply.

3. Change firmware from 90c to 120c

4.Use another version of cgminer


NOTHING worked. Please help me


Edit: Fixed it. For some reason it was my pool slowing it down O.o(btcguild.com) May order more soon if the sale stays for a few days!

EDIT 2: It randomly hashes at 3 or 5 gh/s pool was not the problem.

I tried to flash the new firmware but the Folder of the Miner is empty (0 kB from 0 kB).

With the new firmware green led will be off since you will start the mining software, Bi•Fury will start when software start give him work.
Red led will blink when Bi•Fury accept share. Its normal.

When your mining software crash (or you will turn it off) Bi•Fury will turn off (with led's of course Wink )



About flashing firmware, if you do all like in support instruction and you still have some problem please read FalconFly comment on this:

I think there's a small but important point missing in the description of the Firmware flash process :

- you need to keep those contacts closed all the way until the System recognizes it as Storage Device, installs/initializes USB Storage driver and opens appropiate Window on the Desktop/Device Icon appears - basically until the found storage device is clearly ready to use. This will take at least several seconds.

Letting go too early or temporarily losing the short circuit (can be a bit tricky to keep it closed all the time) just for an instant won't make the LED light up again (making it look like everything works as planned) but interrupts the whole process and will cause various errors in terms of device handling.

I believe it will help you.
We don't have any problems with flashing firmware in way straight from instruction, but like you can read above every body can have some tips form their own experience (thanks FalconFly for sharing this with us!) .
