I think I will buy the real programmer, so I don't waste any more time on this broken board...
When you say "EZ-USB" do you mean it doesn't show up as "Analog Devices USBi"? If so, I have a possible solution.

This might help for those who have to run the ADI_USBi.spt script every time they plug in their device. The exact steps are for Windows 10 Home edition and I had previously installed the generic Cypress driver, "Cypress CY7C68013A Driver (3.4.7.000)".

1. Go to the SigmaStudio drivers folder, "C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\SigmaStudio 3.12\USB drivers\x64" - adjust the path if you have a different SigmaStudio version and/or have a 32 bit system. Run the dpinst.exe program to install the driver and copy files to "Windows\system32".

2. Plug in your device if not already plugged in. Then find it in Device Manager, right click and select "Update Driver Software".

3. Pick "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Then select the "Have Disk" option. Then browse to the SigmaStudio drivers folder, select "CyUSB.inf", "Open" and OK.

4. Two drivers should be listed, "Analog Devices USBi" and "Analog Devices USBi (programmed)". I picked the last one based on another thread. Here are the differences, I don't know the functional difference between the different PIDs.

VID_0456&PID_7030.DeviceDesc="Analog Devices USBi"
VID_0456&PID_7031.DeviceDesc="Analog Devices USBi (programmed)"

5. Select "Next" and "Yes" to the "Update Driver Warning". The driver should be installed.

If you look at the .inf file you'll see the the script file is copied to the "Windows\System32" folder and automatically executed when the device is plugged in.

Thanks for the tip - tried this on Win 7 and it doesn't work. The device shows up as unknown device in Dev. manager. When you try to do 'update driver software' and point it at the inf file, you can only select a folder, not the inf file itself. Then the install just says. 'no driver found'. Any attempt to 'search online' and it just sits there
for ages 'searching online' and you can't cancel..

Ahh the joy, reminds me of trying to make things work back in the days of win95...

Had a further thought... tried a manual 'select type of hardware' install and this seems to have worked. I could select the inf file and I get Analog devices USBi programmed everytime I plug the device in. I've got the jumper off the board, so not sure if that is significant.

HOWEVER.... Sigma studio does not see the USBi.... Device is red in the GUI.

USB board has red led, program adapter has red led and DSP board has green LED.

I still have to run the ADi script file with the Cypress dev. tool to make the board
run with SigmaStudio.

Thanks Piersma - that link is where I originally started..

Never got it to work. even after reading all 60 pages of the Cypress manual...
I've never had much luck with Cypress stuff. LOL!

I guess Its easy enough to run the script manually, then I don't have to waste any more time. Maybe someone has actually got an INF file that works to upload the script?(assuming that is the issue)

The way it works is to flash the eeprom.hex of an original USBi to the ezUSB via "Cypress Console". The .hex is here:

How to do so is described on the AN50963 Section 2.4:
