Though u will need to see what device COM # ur USB is on ur computer... mine was 7 but yours may be different.
Hope this helps and shout if you need further info/assistance...
also just be careful with ur miner... take note what USB hub u using as there are reports i seen from people where the hub has fried all their USB miners and the miner can no longer use them... post about it here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195037.msg2507872#msg2507872
info i used to get mining on the device was here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195037.msg2299251#msg2299251
Mr. Bear, I am plugged straight in to the back of my PC. (Is that Safe?) I just started mining PPC. It seems to be working OK. IT shows 330Mh/s like it should. The pool just picked up that it is mining but hasn't from a block yet (only been a few minutes)
I never figured out how to put in all that code. IT just ask for the server then name and password. I guess it is running on default.
let me know if I need to change anything.
PS. Jesus Christ Mr. Bear you are everywhere.
Yeah mine is directly into the back of my PC ... I believe the issue was due to the wrong power adaptors being supplied with the powered USB hubs... some 1000mA cheap leads from china and the hub drawing too much and then spiking and frying the USB devices in there.... so if u just direct into your pc u should be fine as not heard any bad reports of that.
In order to run cgminer you can do it one of two ways....
the first which u are doing (and I used to) by double clicking the cgminer.exe executable and either inputting the URL and username etc or setting a cgminer.conf and holding all the info in there.
The second way which allows you to run commands against the executable as i suggested in the post above, in order to do this u need to do the following:
Click the "start" icon > Type "CMD" into the search text area > you have just opened a command prompt...
Now open a windows explorer and navigate to you folder with the version of cgminer you want to run and copy the file location... something like C:CryptoCurrencies/Mining/CGminer3.0.1
now go back to the command prompt and type
and hit enter... this should take you to the directory with cgminer.exe in it on the command prompt...
Now you can run the command as i suggested in previous post
cgminer.exe --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S COM7
Also if you are fed up of typing in the URL each time you know the cgminer.conf file?? have a look at the "example.conf" file.... copy it and rename it to cgminer.conf and put in the URL's and passwords etc ... this allows you to setup backup pools as well should the main pool u mining on goes down... trust me they do!! and it also allows you to tweak settings for your GPU etc if u mining on that as well....
I need to have a look round and see if there any other better parameters to run the USB devices on and I had some errors when doing this with cgminer 3.0.2 but that was a little while ago now so i'll see what I can find and i'll share it here.
NOTE *** If u hashing at 330MH then it all sounds good and there is a saying don't change something if it not broken!! so keep a copy of your exact setup before playing round with these different techniques to run cgminer.
Oh and me being everywhere!! hehe well i am a bit of a crypto junkie!! u see me on the PPC pool, u'll find me on here, and devcointalk.org as i run both these forums, been into crypto's for over a year now and also am an admin on devtome and have almost got my own Massively Merged mining pool setup
but still needs work... just a shame I have a normal 9-5 job as well that takes up so much of my days, and I have a boat i live on that is badly in need of repair work being finished off and the crypto's distract me from that!! but it all good fun and I pleased to help out whereever i can and show my support to the communities
