Can not get DLC9LP to work on any OS

So frustrating that I only need to use this DLC9LP for maybe 10 minuntes but

I've spent over 12 hours trying to get iMPACT to detect my device...

I can't seem to connect to my DLC9LP with iMPACT on either Linux or Windows OS's...

Typically resulting in either:

"iMPACT - Module windrvr6 is not loaded." or

WARNING:iMPACT - The cable selected is not avaliable, please select a different one.

I can't see why a USB bootable Linux OS including drivers, couldn't be provided....

Operating System (OS) support on Vivado Design Tools

Operating System (OS) Support on Xilinx ISE Design Tools

https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/18419.html

 

I dont even know how to proceed anymore, I've tried every avenue...

Have you followed the steps in Chapter 1, https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug344.pdf to install the cable driver? The error you pasted here indicates the driver is not installed. 

Make sure you unplug the cable while installing. Once finished, you re-plug the cable, and a installation success window would pop up 2~3 times and only after that the cable can start to work.

Yep, did all that....

Currently on my Win10 machine, tried ISE_DS and ISE_VM both unsuccessful even after installing drivers.

I've tried every solution I could find on your forums,

When I connect it to my laptop it makes the audio sound for connecting to a usb device, but I can't seem to be able to find it in device manager.

But on my Linux only system, using "lsusb" command I am able to find it, however Linux Mint is unsupported.

Is there a supported open source distro of Linux?

Yep tried all that...

I've tried every solution I could find on Xilinx forums all without success...

On my Win10 machine, when I plugin the device it makes the audio sound that it has been plugged in

but I can't seem to be able to find it in device manager like that I've seen in other posts...

However on my Linux only machine I was able to detect it using "lsusb" command,

unfortuntly my version of Linux is unsopprted and was unable to install drivers...

Is there a open source distro of Linux that is supported?

I guess there is no open source for Linux.

For Windows 10 OS, can you try Vivado? ISE is not supported on it and ISE_VM is only a very limited version for Spartan-6 only (though with this version, my USB cable does work..)

I suppose you tried the various re-installing cable drivers methods right? Test with the check_windrvr6.exe/install_drivers.exe in //cable_drivers/nt64/?

You cannot see it in device manager, with cable attached, if you scan changes in device manager, can it show a big yellow question mark in some of the item? If so, you can select 'update or re-install' drivers from Xilinx installation file path, this can work sometimes.

Quote "I suppose you tried the various re-installing cable drivers methods right?" Yes

 

I think it's pretty obviouse what the problem is now....

I got stuck with a clone from eBay even though they were advertising a genuine product.

They still are trying to stick with their claims but I have enough evidence that suggests otherwise.

On the other hand I was able to install ISE including drivers using a method I found on youtube,

Can confirm (from what I can see without a wokring platform cable) working on current versions of Ubunutu and Linux Mint.

The instructions could have been simplified or even put into a script but it seems to do the trick

Hi @nemesis64 

 

Would you share the picture of DLC9LP ?

Especially, I'd like to confirm surfece of it.

 

I suspect it's fake device or unauthrized device. not clone.

 

Best regards,

Well from what I can tell a clone should look a little something like this

But I got this (just a little bit missing...)

Hi @nemesis64 

 

Sorry for my late reply.

 

Unfortunately, it seems similar case as below.

The supplier replaced it with another "clone"...

Actually is being detected now, but having issues with obtaining a VREF
