Hi All,

I have just got a USB cradle for my B2 after the serial port one stopped working - I think I pulled it and the pins pulled back slightly Embarassed

Ordered it on Tuesday night and it arrived on Friday Morning!!

I had a bit of trouble getting it to work Exclamation

But it was easy to sort - the software creates a serial port which is mapped to the USB. Mine was on COM9 - and the drop down menu on the update software went from COM1 to COM4.

Idea Bit of head scratching a reboots didn't help - so I just typed it in.

Worked a treat! :D

And it is a proper cradle which you drop it into, rather than the simple plug. Also takes the power from the USB port, so it saves on a plug Wink

anglefire,

Thanks for the clue.

My b2 updates recently stopped working and I determined that it was a problem related to my existing USB to serial adapter, so I bought the Origin USB Cradle. I couldn't get this to work, so searched this forum and found this thread. My cradle had installed itself on COM20, which the Origin Internet Update Utility would not work with. Fortunately COM2 was not in use, so I persuaded it to switch to that in Device Manager. All is now well!
