Otovation Port Devices Driver Download For Windows 10

Posted By admin On 12/10/21
  • When you plug the device into your USB, Windows will look for the associated driver, if it cannot find this driver then you will be prompted to insert the driver disc that came with your device. Common USB Device errors are ‘ usb port not working ‘, ‘device descriptor request failed error’ or ‘bugcodeusbdriver’ issues.
  • The package provides the installation files for FTDI USB Serial Port Driver version 2.12.16.0. If the driver is already installed on your system, updating (overwrite-installing) may fix various issues, add new functions, or just upgrade to the available version.

The CH340 chip is used by a number of Arduino compatible boards to provide USB connectivity, you may need to install a driver, don’t panic, it’s easier than falling off a log, and much less painful.


This will enable your computer to communicate with audio devices such as speakers and sound cards. It is important to have a 64-bit version of a Windows operating system installed in your computer before downloading Realtek HD Audio Drivers x64. It can either be Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

The following github has up to day pkg files for 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 at time of writing, thanks to Joshua Wallis for bringing this to my attention…

Direct Download Links (from the github repo above):

See the github link above for installation instructions if you need them.

Driver

Previous macinstosh downloads if the above doesn’t work for you…

(V1.3) Download the CH340 Macintosh Signed Driver for Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite (10.10) and El Capitan (10.11) and Sierra (10.12)

Inside the zip file you will find a PDF and a “pkg” file, short version, double click the pkg file, the PDF has some extra information.

OSX Sierra (10.12) Note

A kindly user, Maarten Segers reports

FYI, the driver documented here WILL crash on OSX Sierra.

Make sure to use this one instead: https://github.com/MPParsley/ch340g-ch34g-ch34x-mac-os-x-driver

I can personally not test on MacOS and can not vouch for the above drivers at github, but there you go.

See uninstalling information at the bottom of the page if the driver causes problems for you.

Here is an older version of the Mac driver, NOT FOR 10.12 Sierra

(V1.0) Download the CH340 Macintosh Signed Driver for Mavericks (10.9), Yosemite (10.10) and El Capitan (10.11)

Linux

(Manufacturer’s Chinese Info Link)

Drivers are almost certainly built into your Linux kernel already and it will probably just work as soon as you plug it in. If not you can download the Linux CH340 Driver (but I’d recommend just upgrading your Linux install so that you get the “built in” one).

Uninstalling From Macinstosh

A couple of Mac users have said “the driver crashes my mac Sierra how do I uninstall”.

Firstly regards the crash make sure you installed the 1.3 version of the driver, not the old one. You could download it directly from the Manufacturers Website in case they have issued an update since I wrote this page.

Secondly a quick google search reveals that this is how you uninstall:
