no suitable device found

Post by jpowning » Tue Oct 01, 2019 9:21 pm

Persistent problem with Picoscope Software and Picoscope 3204A - very cumbersome:

1. Problem started after my work computer was updated from Windows 7 to 10. Yes, I have removed and reinstalled PicoScope 6 software, but this did not help the problem.
2. Situation 1: Start up Picoscope 6, then plug in Picoscope 3204A. "No suitable device found" window goes away and seems to do something, but I don't hear any clicks, and the scope window stays blank. Do "safe removal" of the scope, disconnect from PC, reconnect, I hear clicks, and then it starts to work.
3. Situation 2: Connect the Picoscope, then start the software. Software displays "No suitable device found." I do a safe removal of the scope, disconnect from PC, reconnect. "No suitable device found" window goes away, but no clicks and scope window is blank. Do a safe removal, disconnect, reconnect, hear clicks, starts to work.
4. Situation 3: Sometimes the Software will "lose" the scope. Just doesn't see it anymore, and no activity is evident in the scope window.

Can you please email this sounds very unusual so the team will require a number of trace files to investigate this for you.
