Install the USB Driver


When you plug in your EasyFlash 3 and Windows doesn’t know a driver for it yet, it is listed in the Device Manager as shown in the following screenshot.

To install a suitable driver, use Zadig.

Start Zadig and select EasyFlash 3, install the WinUSB driver for it.

If everything was successful, the Device Manager shows the EasyFlash 3 as a USB device.



Current Linux distributions come with a driver for the FT245R. To access the EasyFlash 3 without being root, on Debian derived systems create a new udev rule file /etc/udev/rules.d/80-easyflash.rules with the following content:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="8738", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"

Add your user account to the group plugdev, either with a GUI tool or by adding your user name to the line that starts with plugdev in the file /etc/group.

Log out and log in again, re-plug your EasyFlash 3 and have fun!

Other distributions might work similar.
