what says system properties from windows?
is there a driver installed for that FTDI?
to which com-port it is assigned to the ftdi in your windows?
Do you have a unknown device under system?
If yes this has to be cured first, deinstall and reinstall everything.
Normally your windows should find on its own, but i also had one or 2 times the case i had to reinstall the ftdi, windows...., but normally this FTDI driver is pretty rocksolid, have to say i like it.
