@mbdall and @Rocam: On behalf of the UCSD IoT team I would like to apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced with the USB Driver installation for Windows, Coursera video. I am in the process of replacing it with a less confusing video, though this may take some time due to the holidays.
In the mean time, I will be taking the video down and replacing it with links to various resources (including these forums). Your input and help in these discussions, and those of Coursera are much appreciated.
We look forward to your continued participation in the UCSD IoT specialization, as well as all future input. Your observations and feedback help make our courses better for everyone.
