Exactly which version of PHD are you using? 1.14.1 and above - in the Pre-release folder - are supposed to work.

Get the latest windows and ascom drivers from qhy and phd works fine.

The windows drivers lets windows talk to the camera and the ascom drivers lets software like phd or maxim talk to the windows driver via ascom.

It's definitely not rocket science.
