Hi Matt, Rod and Everyone,
After some puzzling, I picked up an ADC212/03 today.
I downloaded the latest files and installed them under XP. ADC has been hooked up with supplied parts, RED light lit.
Now PicoScope's startup message varies between these:
- Error 2 (H247 SO), or (H128 SO)
- ADC200 unit not found on LPT1
My default BIOS setting was:
- LPT1: 378h / IRQ 7; ECP+EPP
Possible LPT port modes: Normal / EPP / ECP / ECP+EPP.
I tried them all with no success.
My system is brand new, the mobo is Asus P4G8X in particular.
WinXP Pro is also in good shape.
In Device Manager LPT1 is fine.
Under the 'Port Setting' tab there are several options. Again, I tried them all. (BTW, which one do you think is the best to use?)
And here comes the nice part.
I can run different OSes in a window under my WinXP as independent virtual machines. (For more info: http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/ws_features.html
Thus, I set-up a Win98
system in a WinXP window and installed PicoScope there as well.
It was running without any probs
for the 1st attempt.
What it means is:
- All the hardware work fine
- Pico softwares work fine under Win98, but they do have problems on WinXP on some system.
I hope there will be a solution for this soon, since running the software in an emulated environment do have disadvantages (e.g. slower screen refresh, etc).
If you are unable to reproduce the fault on your systems, I could help by testing your ideas.
