I totally agree with you. I have identical OS running on an ASUS. Same issue, nother buddy has OS 7 but 32 bit and it works fine.

With Windows 7 it can be a bit finicky.
Keep trying, only use 1 USB port, don't switch around thinking that's the cause until after it loads properly.
Took me 3-4 times to get it to work on Windows 7.

Hi,

I had this problem when I first got my CIU-2. I am running Win 7 64 bit on my laptop. I downloaded all the drivers and software for the CIU-2. I opened up the software and plugged it in and the LED wouldn't go Red or Green.

I tried plugging in to different USB ports and it still didn't work. I deleted everything and removed the drivers. I re-downloaded and installed everything again.

I plugged in the USB and Windows downloaded the drivers for it to run the device. I then opened up the GY Link and Update software and the LED went from Red to Green and it worked.

I can plug in to different USB ports now and it works no problems.

I don't know what it was becuase I did everything the same on the second attempt.

Cheers
Scott

The software is just finicky with W7. Futaba Japan knows of this issue.
