The best thing to do in this case is always to remove the entire TI daughterboard (the one with the fancy ZIF socket) from the Dev Board, and connect to it via your parallel or USB FET. This isolates any electrical issues from the rest of the system.

If it still doesn't work, replace the chip in the socket, and ensure that the socket is fully closed.

You can get into a mode whereby the MSP430 does not respond to the FET -- I have found that a full power down, disconnect of the FET as well (at the 2x7 header), press RESET switch, reconnect FET, reconnect power, then reconnect in CW430 does the trick.

No driver installation is required -- CrossWorks installs all the necessary drivers (w/CW430 v2 you also need to install the MSP430 board support packages).
