Icom ID-1 64-bit Windows drivers


To install a working FTDI serial driver for the Icom ID-1 on 64-bit Windows:

  1. If you have already attempted an install of the ID-1 drivers, delete both the Serial Port and the USB converter devices (check that the manufacturer is FTDI before deleting) using the Windows 7 Device Manager.
  2. Download the FTDI v2.08.30 driver and run it.
  3. In the Windows 7 Device Manager, select "Update Driver" for the "ICOM ID-1 USB DEVICE".
  4. Browse manually, and pick "Universal Serial Bus controllers" from a list of device drivers.
  5. Select "FTDI" as the manufacturer.
  6. Select "USB Serial Converter" as the Model.
  7. Select AGAIN "Update Driver" for the "ICOM ID-1 USB DEVICE".
  8. Browse manually, and this time pick "Ports (COM & LPT)" from a list of device drivers.
  9. Select "FTDI" as the manufacturer.
  10. Select "USB Serial Port" as the Model.


If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please use the AE7Q message board. I've spent a considerable amount of time documenting the vanity application process and publicly answering very common questions, so that I don't have to repeatedly answer them.
