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.


I am not your vanity application private consultant! Private messages (regardless of whether you feel a special reason for your application) on these and associated topics will be ignored, rebuffed, and/or made public.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, use the AE7Q message board. I've spent a considerable amount of time documenting the vanity application process. I've created a message board,where I and others have publicly answered very common questions, so that we don't have to repeatedly answer them, particularly in private communications.
