I will follow up that lead, but it talks about XP and I would have thought that I had the latest drivers since it is not an old PC.
You may actually have the latest kernel driver. But that does not preclude it from having a bug.
If your computer is 32 bit, it is possible the driver has not changed since XP was released.
It is very strange that with Arduino 22 I am having no problem (nor have I had since it was released)
That is odd. The differences between 0022 and 0023 are very minor.
But, bugs in kernel drivers are strange that way. For example, very very minor differences in hardware timing can awaken an otherwise long dormant bug.
I will report back my findings.
Thanks for the help!
You are welcome and good luck.
