I have used this cable just two week ago and it worked fine
Connect YELLOW and BROWN cable pins
Press any key to start test
1 USB cables found.
Bit bang mode...Ok
Cable IO test
Possible problem here!
VSD-XE was OK for playing around but it turned out it has too many sharp ends and little problems for production use. When customer hits the problem you don't even know where to start troubleshooting so the whole system has to be sent back and forth... It's a shame since it's a great product on paper...
