In Recent, we received some inquiries from our customers. When they purchasing a new USB converter AR-321-CM to use in win10 or win11, the system remind that the driver version doesn’t support and should install corresponding driver; the customer  think the product is defective and then send it back to SOYAL for repair. Since the USB chip of PL2303 we use upgrades, the different chip has the corresponding driver version. Please read the following comparison table and choose the correct driver for your product version.
