Re: Troubleshooting MPLAB ICD 2 Problems
OK I have solved the problem. Issue was the TrendNet USB-to-RS-232 cable with PL-2303 chipset was a big fail. Amazon didn't even take it back, they just credited my account. So more research, looked into the FTDI chipset, found the "Sabrent USB 2.0 TO SERIAL CABLE ADAPTER / USB A-MALE & SERIAL 9-PIN MALE"
and after messing with the COM ports IT WORKED!!!
MPLAB IDE is set to COM1. Tested at 19200, have not tried faster. Control Panel / System / Device Manager / Ports / USB Serial Port / Port Settings set to 19200/8/None/1/None. Advanced Settings for COM1 set to COM1/4096/4096/16/0/0 and only Serial Enumerator checked.
