I have a 3206 which runs great if I can get it started... the trouble is getting it started!
The start sequence I use is:
1. Power the wall wart for the 3206 (and make sure the power connector is connected)
2. Start my laptop computer, which has PicoFull_r5_16_2.exe installed on it
3. Plug in the USB cable to the laptop. I hear the standard Windows tones when a USB device is plugged in. The first time after the software was installed I had to go through the installation procedure. I only did this once after installing the software.
4. Start the program. At this point it starts the progress bar on the bottom of the start-up splash screen and gets to about 3/4 through and then displays a message that it can't find the hardware. Several disconnects, power-downs, power-ups, reconnects, etc. and it finally recognizes the hardware and the program runs fine.
What could be causing this start-up problem?
