  1. Thanks Knighty2112. I tried updating driver a few times It didn't solve the issue, probably due to it being a cheap Chinese USB Adaptor. I've finally downloaded a driver that it will work with....Sorted. Thanks all for your help.
  2. Thanks Mars1960 Many Thanks StevieDvd. I uninstalled previous USB/Serial Adaptor drivers I'd installed then downloaded the driver from your link, CFM immediately downloaded updates and transfered to Handset the latest Firmware.....sorted.
  3. Hi, can anybody help me. I’m trying to update my Celestron 8SE NexStar+ Handset Firmware using supplied RS-232 Lead connected via USB 232 Converter Lead, downloaded Celestron Firmware Manager and PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v10518. No joy, repeatedly Celestron Firmware Manager advises CFM was unable to find a device. Looking in Windows 10 Device Manager a new Port (COM & LPT) has appeared, (plug symbol covered with a yellow caution triangle) listing: Prolific USB-to-Serial Com Port (Com4) opened, general tab lists: This device cannot start (Code 10) A device which does not exist was specified. Any help would be appreciated, I’m going round in circles.
