One additional note, make sure to plug in the PC power supply at the back of the card, the connector looks like the one on the photo below.

This is the type usually used for older EIDE hard disks and CD roms, I have never seen a PC without one yet.

Updated driver just today.

Notes:

- Added option to start FM transmitter automatically as the program is started.

- Make sure there is c:\songname.txt file on your disk, you can create your own or we have included one inside program installation folder. This file is used to store song name from your PC mp3 player or other audio player.

Alternative signed USB driver (use only when Windows asks for signed drivers and does not let you pass):
http://www.pcs-electronics.com/software/PololuCP2102USB.zip

This one will appear under different name (Pololu) as ours (PCS Electronics), but is fully functional and works perfectly.


Old version of control program:
