I am trying to update my CGY750 from version 1.2 to 1.31 and cannot get the CIU2 to work. Looked through Futaba site and cannot find directions for using Windows 7.

I appreciate any help...

thanks in advance,

Gary

Thanks Steve...

That worked... I actually had the PDF file you referenced, but never read far enough to notice it covered Windows 7. I never got past the asterisk with a note that states

"* These CIU-2 drivers are for windowsVista/XP/2000 use, and is not
compatible with other OS."

Futaba probably needs to update that document.

thanks again,

Gary

That's just to cover their butts, as new OS come along they can't guarantee that the CIU will work with them.

If you skip me I can't play!

Glad you got it working Gary. Futaba's one and only downfall are their manuals. Not the easiest things to navigate and understand. Oh well, small price to pay for high quality products they do provide.

Enjoy!
