ez430-RF2500 / MSP-FET430UIF not recognized by Windows
My ez430-RF2500 has been working fine for the “Sensor Monitor Visualizer” demo for the past several days. I had not tested its MSP-FET430UIF’s emulation ability in CCS.
It suddenly fails today with the following symptom:
CCS Version: 5.2.0.00069, all drivers have been installed including MSP430 USB drivers as shown in the screenshot (lowest part).
OS: Windows 7 32-bit
I have tried:
None of the above solved the problem.
I want to know that if it is possible to know whether the ez430-RF2500 emulation board has been damaged, or it is due to some other software/driver cause? I didn’t use the board in any improper way as I could remember and am not aware of any reason why it would stop functioning.
The ez430-RF2500 suite was bought a week ago from a local distributor which they stored for a long long time, and the package shows that it was made in 03/19/2008 in Germany, which has been 4 years and 3 months now.
Would there be any hardware update on ez430-RF2500 during this period so that the problem would not happen with latest made products?
Though I tend to buy another latest one directly from TI Store, I am still not sure whether it was the old hardware or any other interfering software/driver on my machine that has caused the problem. So please kindly advise on the problem.
Hi, I proudly abandoned windows due to these problems during update, I own a lot of broken EZ interfaces, your device is partially recognized as serial device so it can be repaired probably reloading firmware. The trouble doesn't come from device age but from Winzz instability, may be device come to an irresponsive state and you removed or powered down pc during an update or just as I experienced winzz frozen during EZ upgrade on XP SP3 never finished leaving EZ key in an unusable state...

I guess I still have to live with my Windows system since most of the development tools I am familiar with are on it. But thanks all the same for advices.
Nothing, just try install Elprotronic software and check if UIF work, if all is ok download firmware from another EZ interface and reflash to the broken one. No other solution I know.
