Flex 5000A Firewire Driver

After loading the Power SDR per instructions - reboot etc., PC does not connect to the 5000A. I do get the 5000A 1394A green led light connection, though.

Loading the Power SDR is supposed to load the Flex Firewire driver - Can anyone tell me if their Firewire Driver description changed (in the PC device manager). Mine still says the Driver is Microsoft, 2006

    Hi Alan

    Radio should be off when you install software and here is screen save of what mine looks like. I have had radio port failure but you need to get correct driver first think what your seeing is not correct.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
