I installed a new hard drive in my laptop a few months ago and I guess this is the first time I've tried to use my JP1 USB cable (a Tommy Tyler cable) since then. I know I need to install the driver but I can't for the life of me figure out how, as it's been years since I last did this.

I was expecting to see a "USB IO Controller" entry in the USB section of Device Manager, but it's not there. When I click to scan for new hardware it tries to load something but fails but never gives me the option to supply my own driver.

Any ideas?

What OS are you using?
If it is win 10 it can be picky with drivers that are not signed.
For win 10 hold shift key and to a restart
Start into diagnostics or something like that
then something like advanced there you will see a list such as safe mode and others
Pick the one that says something like do not enforce driver signature
windows will start and then you can attempt installing drivers
I read how to do this on the web and it was the only way i could install my old OKI printer
Printer works perfect and using this trick

Poke around in device manager til you see something with an exclamation point. Then R-click, Update..., then Browse for a driver.

However, there may not be a 64-bit driver, in which case, you'll need to use 3FG's WinUSB driver.

Thanks Dave, I found it higher up under "Other Devices", I was expecting it to be in the USB section. And the WinUSB driver did the trick.
