MSP430-FLASHER: Driver : closed (Internal error)

Part Number: MSP430-FLASHER
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-FLASHER

I have two USB MSP-FET430UIF JTAG pods that are used in programming certain hardware.

Recently I started seeing one of our automated tests fail and traced the issue back to one of the MSP430 pods.

I have the two on COM8 and COM22. The failing pod is on COM8 and the one that work is on COM22. If I change the pod on COM22 to COM8, our automated test passes. Then I can move it back to COM22 for test number 2.

This led me to believe a bad pod, so I ordered two replacements. However I get the same error on both new pods!

"* Driver : closed (Internal error)"

However, switching back the same working model MSP430UIF from COM22 to COM8 using the SAME batch file. Any troubleshooting help is appreciated!

  • Hi Michael Wolfe,

    I have asked the relevant experts for your issue. As soon as I get feedback, I will contact you.

    Best Regards


  • Hello Michael,

    Can you confirm what version of the debuggers you have?  Is it the grey boxed MSP-FET430UIF?  Or are they black boxed MSP-FETs?

    The reason I ask as the MSP-FET430UIF is no longer supported, and hasn't been for quite some time. I also noticed that your MSP-FLASHER is quite an old version as well.
